Me, too! I was on the commode, LOL! Luckily it did no damage to my house or to  me.Smiley Embarassed.

 

I thought it was a sonic boom or a very large truck on our street. It lasted too long for a sonic boom. Didn't realize it was an earthquake until I went on Facebook. One of my friends said it was a 4.2?

 

I'm 10 miles up from the southern coast. We had a smaller one maybe 1o years back. This was mucu more noticeable.

Yes the epicenter was in Buzzard's Bay.  It happened around 9AM.  Pretty scarey!

Re: Here in Rhode Island....

A 3.6 you say?

 

 

Here in California, we don't even get out of bed for a 3.6. 😄

 

 

 

I'm teasing!😆

 

 

 

 

I'm glad that just nerves got rattled, and that there wasn't any damage or injury.😊

We are in the northeast corner and didn't feel a thing!?   Buzzards bay is getting out toward Cape Cod.  Happy all is well.

I'm up north on the MA/RI border, heard rumbling, and then my fridge started shaking.  Then it was over just like that.  Strange feeling for an area that never experiences this kind of thing and was surprised when they said it was 4.2.
