They say some folks felt the tremor here in our area around 2pm. I work at home in a pretty quiet place, and didn't notice a thing.

My wife texted asking if I felt that before it was announced. She's in Lyman. A coworker's wife contacted him from Inman about the house shaking. I didn't feel anything in Taylors.

<yawn> Sounds like a minor story. At least Upstate residents don't have to worry about a life-altering hurricane.

Nothing here in TR, but on Kimberly Kelly's FB page people all around say they felt it...

Haven't heard about it on the news yet, but we felt it here in Mauldin. Mostly just noticed my desk and monitors rocking back and forth!

I had just stopped by my house on the way to an appointment, and I didn't really feel it, but these little figures on a shelf rattled a little bit. I actually just thought an unusually heavy truck went down Woodruff Road. I fired up the computer, and then started seeing all this stuff about an earthquake.

Oddly, Virginia is a heck of a lot further away from an earthquake hazard area. In fact, Greenville's closer to 2 than they are to any.

Two co-workers just blamed this on Obama, and they are being 100% serious. Something about sinning, the end of America, repentance, and that it was centered in DC - a sign from God. Holy $hit, there are some serious nut jobs in this town.

I didn't feel it, but local FB friends say they did.

Haha, that's hilarious (and sad) (and scary). What is this company you work for?
