    My building is over a 100 years old, shaking is pretty common. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. (I think there's a sink hole forming under it too.)

    The most severe known earthquake in the continental US was the New Madrid earthquake of the early 1800s and that was just south of today's. It's named after New Madrid, MO and I think it made church bells ring in Charleston, SC.

    I thought I felt it, but it turned out to be the jalapeño slices I put on my sandwich last night.

    I didn't feel it. lol

    We have had some earthquakes here...little ones. About two years ago I was sitting at my desk at work and the there was a rumble and building shook. For a second I thought it was a big truck driving by...then there was a second longer rumble and shaking. Then I knew. lol It was a 4.2 earthquake. There have been others but not as strong as that. It was kinda cool because it felt weird and nothing got damaged other than knocked around a bit.
