We had a small 2.07 quake last night. Only the second time I have ever felt the earth move. It was centered in north west NJ and we felt it here. Not sure how the people in Ca deal with those things on a regular basis. Weird stuff

Certainly is weird! We went through a small one several years ago. My first and only. Not what I would have expected it to have been like.

Glad you got through it WCS, I've never experienced one that I can remember myself.

Although not my expertise, earthquakes happen in the eastern U.S. like the one a few years back that damaged the Washington memorial enough in D.C. that it had to be closed to the public for a while to do repairs.

New England had several notable ones during colonial days:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ ... _10_hs.php

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1755_Cape_Ann_earthquake

The New Madrid, MO quakes of 1811-1812 were substantially large but very few people lived in the affected area at that time. Supposedly the Mississippi River flowed backwards for some time and Reelfoot Lake was the result of part of the river's channel getting cut off.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ ... 1-1812.php

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1811%E2%8 ... arthquakes

And Charleston, SC was heavily damaged from an earthquake in 1886.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1886_Char ... earthquake

Probably other well known ones in the East that i don't know about. The "low-probability, high impact" (probably not the correct term) of a thing like the New Madrid quake is something that people in these sort of seismic areas should know about because often building codes are not armored up like in Cali because these events are so infrequent. And I could be wrong, maybe building codes in the St. Louis to Memphis region are augmented to take in the possibility of a major quake. Then again, maybe not. But there's a lot more people in such areas now than 200 years ago. Could be a wild ride someday...
