I was under the lift doing an oil change and was thinking why the frack is the car shaking up there and ran out of the garage. Now I know, and nothing fell/collapsed. Yay!

LMAO!

Anyway, a 5.9 earthquake on the east coast seems pretty unusual.

Yeah, that's true. They usually don't make the news around here unless they're a bit more dramatic. The Easter Quake of 2010 was a 7.2, and remember that it's a logarithmic scale, so that's about 90x as powerful as a 5.9.

It broke a few windows, and one guy got hurt when a sign fell on him. They also had to close one terminal of the airport for about 10 minutes.

7-8 quakes are actually kind of cool. If you've never experienced a really good one, you're missing out. Sometimes, if you're standing outside in an open area (eg: near the top of a peak looking over a flat area) you can actually see the surface of the earth ripple like waves in a pond.

LOL
Minor quakes, in California standards, are major events on the east coast.
2 things to take note of though.
(1) The ground here (as in east coast) is HARD and dense, and as such and transmits well.
(2) Earthquake isn't much of a concern, so buildings and structures are not engineered with earthquake safety in mind.

I'm in south jersey and we got hit decently. My monitor connections ripped out of my tower. I'm a 25 year old working in an office full of middle aged women. I have so many claw marks on me and I think I got a half attempt at an hj. A+
