Re: Quake and shake on eastern seaboard

Maybe less heavily built, = more flexible?
I am definitely calling the insurance agent tomorrow and see if we are covered for earthquakes.

That's interesting in that I'm closer to the epicenter and the 100+ year old rowhouse I am in is not heavily built but nothing fell off of shelves (did grab my 1/48 J-35 Draken model just in case). My Giraffatitan herd members shifted around a bit. Phone service intact. The quake is now a 5.9 felt in Indiana and Toronto. I doubt any were seriously injured or that collections
were damaged.
