There was a small earthquake in South Carolina (down in Charleston) this morning as well. There was a major one there in the 1800s, but this one was something like 3.7. I'm originally from California and have felt a few.

Barbara, a 3.6 is a good little shaker. We had a 2.8 here a few days ago. It was just big enough to make a few thing rattle.

cara, it does make sense that people felt it in northern germany too. For example, I would imagine that Stralsund and Rostock are more close to the epicenter than my home town, or at least equally close, and if we felt it.. Well, you get the picture.
