About an hour ago, I was in the zone working on my reading curriculum for next year when the rumbling started. My poor puppy didn't know what was happening as knick-knacks started falling off the shelves! Turns out it was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake, with the epicenter not too far from here! We're fine, and I haven't heard of any injuries on the news.
I'm excited to talk about this with my kids once school starts, since earthquakes are part of our science curriculum. Now I've got to figure out the science behind it; we're not anywhere near a tectonic plate boundary, so I'm not sure what caused it! Please let me know if you find any good sites that explain it over the next couple of days!
Apparently this quake was felt all up and down the east coast. Any other stories? I can't imagine what a stronger earthquake would be like!
