I didn't feel anything shake or move but for a brief few seconds I felt a bit dizzy. I have experienced dizziness as a result of an injury so I just thought that it was from that. But I haven't had any problems in many years. Then I saw on facebook that people were posting about the earthquake at about the time that I felt dizzy. So, I guess I did experience it.

It's strange I live in Pennsylvania and did not feel a thing. Maybe it was because I was outside walking?

Yes...are you all right, people? I'm happy we have no eartyhquakes in Buenos Aires. It's a very flat land. However, time to time, we feel some little shaking earth when there was a big eartquake at the Andes region. It's very far away, but some neighborhood could feel them....or at least is what they said.

I didn't feel anything while I was out grocery shopping, but my husband says at work in Springfield, MA they felt a good shaking for 30 seconds or so. They actually evacuated some of the public buildings in the downtown area because of it.

We didn't feel anything, but some people in Atlanta did.

They discovered a crack in one of the triangular faces at the top of the monument, but there's no truth to the rumor that it's leaning.
