yeah, its true. i was at work in plattsburgh when it hit. it was like something really big and moveing really fast hit the building, only for about half a minute. strangely there was no major damage in my area. but in ausable forks near the eppicenter route 9N is closed for a collapse,(i was driveing that road yesterday) and there are a few other roads that are damaged. maby some small structural damage to a few houses too. i am just glad it wasnt a little higher on the ricter scale, things might have gotten interesting with these older homes. biggest shake-up in 30 years. coincidentally, we did have a small tremmor about 3 months ago, but it was early in the morning and barely preceptable.

I wonder if this is related to the terrorist threat against NE financial institutions??? Have the terrorists developed an earthquake bomb? [shock]
