I reckon if you live long enough stuff like this is gonna happen. It'll be alright.

thinking back on yesterday's earthquake. i find myself wondering why it is that it made dogs go crazy, whereas cats could barely be interrupted for a brief moment from their naps. both cats and dogs have keen hearing and sense of smell....anyone know why cats and dogs reacted so differently to the earthquake?

Thats strange because my cat and everyone elses cats I've talked to said their cats when running for cover. Mine turned into claws, teeth and hiss and beat it to under the bed.

what you are saying sounds so much more believable, makes sense. my sources for the cat behavior i described was entirely from blogs i was reading. we probably all freaked when the quake hit then--humans, dogs, cats, birds--everybody....

They had one in southern Colorado also.
actually, it went all the way up to Boston.

Heard last night that it's because the faults on the East coast are interconnected. As opposed to the West coast, where they're independent of each other.

The magnitude in New Jersey was 2.0

also, they were saying that this was a shallow acting earthquake, easily spreading far distances. earthquakes usually are occurring very deep within the earth, and do not spread very far on the earth's surface.

My cat started acting strange a minute or so BEFORE the quake.

Actually it was felt as far north as Toronto, Canada. My daughter was chatting online with a friend in toronto who felt it at the same time while they were chatting.
