UPDATE: I have to correct my snarky little comment at the end of this post. The earthquake was volcanic. :)

I felt this from where I live, did anyone else? Epicenter was near Greenville, apparently. 5.7, no injuries or damage reported.

The couch suddenly felt like someone was rocking it. I looked up from the TV and the ceiling fan chain and the lampshades were ever so slightly moving. I knew what was happening pretty much right away because I remember that “elevator” like feeling from Loma Prieta (which was actually a lot stronger where I was) but I didn’t even bother getting into a doorway, it was so mild.

Here’s a meme for you:

Remember, folks, plate tectonics is just a theory!
