    Was just a 4.8 mag earthquake in NJ about 10:24am - 4/5/24

    They're saying Lebanon NJ, but felt throughout the state and in NY, Connecticut, Penn.

    I'm in east NJ about 25 miles from NYC. My house shook, some rumbling noises, and stuff fell off a shelf. Cats reacted - didn't like it. Almost scary for a few seconds, but it was brief. I don't know of any serious damage.

    I'm hearing "stongest earthquake in NJ since 1884".
    Before that, there was one in the 1783.

    There was another mildish earthquake in NJ about 11? years ago - I remember it being discussed on this forum.

    ...I see NYC officials are holding press conferences, acting like it's almost a big-damn-deal-but-they're-on-top-of-things.

    4.8? You have to be right on top of that to feel anything...

    Perhaps an "Enstupidation USA" sub forum.

    How can people, both left and right, be such hopeless idiots?

    When every swinging dick on the face of the earth walks around with a radio super computer in their pockets.

    I have a cousin in Belmar, they felt it pretty good.

    Word around the campfire is the Holland Tunnel is closed for inspections.

    Was driving from Ringoes to Frenchtown (Hunterdon County). Didn't feel a thing. Epicenter was in the boro of Lebanon. Road collapsed. News was there.

    There was a 4.0 aftershock at 5:59 pm.
    I heard the rumbling noise, but nothing fell off the shelves this time.
    I expect people in CA are laughing at us east coasters for thinking this is a big deal.

    The government must be behind this since they clearly have advanced technology that can create earthquakes.

    Holy F....

    This person can't be a real person. I've heard more comprehensible comments come out of the mouths of 5 year olds, giving the benefit of the doubt.

    How does a person this blinkered... this completely detached from reality could possibly be allowed to run for Congress... Oh, no, never mind... I forgot that it's practically a requirement for office...
