    Never been in one....that I'm aware of.
    Must have been a bit unsettling.

    I guess reason quakes are felt so far is the crust in the east us is soft compared to the west.

    I Live real close to the KY/VA state line so it ant really all that far away.

    I hate to scare you guys down there, but it isn't because the ground is soft (although locally that can make a difference). The reactions travel so far because the faults are very, very deep. If you really want to get a bit paranoid, google "New Madrid Fault". It's only a matter of time...

    We're about 100 miles from Whitesburg and didn't feel a thing. I've been through several of them when living on the left coast, so I know what they feel like.

    The New Madrid fault scares the dickens out of me. If I lived in Memphis, it would terrify me I would move as far away as possible. ;lol
