    Question Virginia Quake?

    Just wondering if you guys felt any of that on the summit or have any equipment up there to monitor seismic activity? Felt it pretty good in Albany NY, they made us evacuate the building for a short time. Saw the walls down in the server room area move pretty good too, kinda creepy.
    Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day.

    Was hiking on Mt. Tom in Holyoke, MA and definitely felt a little odd. It was more the sound that clued me in at first...all the trees just swaying a little bit on an otherwise quiet day was the first indication that something was awry.

    If you felt it, you can report it here (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/dyfi/) for the USGS felt it map. It's free, quick, easy and best of all it helps asses the quake and help out geologists (like some of my friends) in earthquake research.

    I'm not sure they have an seismic equipment on the summit. I think they were also a little out of range, but you never know.

    Lots of people in my area felt it, especially anyone working above the 2nd floor of an office building.
