Hope there is no significant damage nor injuries. Needless to say, test all holds carefully for a while. Otherwise, it was by far the strongest one I have felt in the mid-Atlantic area.

Like grading climbs. CNN has it at 5.9. Felt it here in Pine Bush. My brother on the 20 th floor of his office building in NYC felt it, everyone got real nervous real fast.

The Earth shakes everywhere I go, so I guess I am used to it.

a lot of people didn't feel it. guess I feel kinda "lucky" I did - in a fairly big cinderblock factory building in Danbury and the whole building just sort of rolled as if we were on a ship. not shaking, just rolling for maybe a minute. definitely very weird and spooky but also very cool at the same time!. everyone said "what the *#&$*# was that? and a few people incl. me said Yeah, that was an Earthquake!

Like grading climbs. CNN has it at 5.9.

It was reported as 5.8, revised to 5.9 then re-revised to 5.8
Perhaps it really was 5.8+ or 5.9-.

I was sitting high up on temporary bleachers, and they swayed side to side. We thought some kids were rocking them back and forth from underneath. (This was in New Haven CT) The folks seated high in the (large - seats several thousand - concrete) tennis stadium really felt it. Many left their seats and ran to the stairs.

I was up in NH at Rumney during the earthquake. Didn't feel anything, but it was appropriate that we were climbing the route "Jolt" at the time.

An Oklahoma earthquake seems hardly worth mentioning here.
