Earthquake in Michigan

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Today in Brockway Michigan we had an EarthQuake.
We are not prone to EarthQuakes.
I was upstairs loading updates on the computer when my cabinet started rocking. I knew we had severe storm warnings for most of the day and into the night, but did not think about an earthquake. I found out we had an earthquake that registered 5.0.

    Wow, where IS that? I am originally from the SW corner of the state, and my brother lives in Grand Rapids! I never heard of an earthquake in Michigan! Wow!

    Yikes! I didn't feel it, but we had a humdinger of a thunderstorm with tornado watch. That tornado through here a couple weeks ago was too close for comfort. This is an odd summer.

    People here at work felt it too (SE Michigan - metro Detroit) though I'm on the ground floor and didn't feel a thing. Crazy stuff!

    I live in Ottawa, so we were just a bit close to the center than you, but yes, it definitly was an earthquake, and a moderate one at that.

    Funny story. One of our neighbours is from a part of the world were earth quakes are more common. In fact, as a child her village was hit by a deadly earth quake, and through her life she has experienced several smaller ones.

    She had some trade people in putting in a new hot water heater just when it hit. They dropped the water tank and ran out of the house shouting what is happening.

    She calmly stated, "That's an earth quake. Haven't you ever felt an earth quake before?"

    Isn't diversity wonderful?

    Take care
