    The phone lines are overloaded! Nobodys texts or calls are going through! 5.8 is really not that bad. I don't think they found anyone dead from the earthquake. My family's friend lives right near the epicenter and he said all is good. No need to worry!

    I stay in NJ and the only element my fiance and that i might continuously say is that we (mid Atlantic states) are previous due for an earthquake and previous due for a hurricane. We have been given our earthquake the different day and it feels like we are going to get the hurricane this weekend. Granted it's going to in all threat be a type 2 and human beings in Florida will make relaxing persons yet we've been given 18 inches of snow dumped on us 2 days after Christmas final December. as quickly as we dug ourselves out, yet another 12 inches fell 4 or 5 days later. a week later, we had yet another snow hurricane. some states get a dusting of snow and that they do no longer comprehend what to do. This grow to be genuinely the third measurable earthquake i've got experienced at the same time as living in NJ and Massachusetts. There are fault platforms working up and down the east coast yet they are not as energetic as those on the west coast. that's a diverse experience for us yet once you ask somebody in NJ what that they had do if 12 inches of snow falls from the sky, that they had in all threat inform you that that they had dig their automobile out and rigidity to artwork with something of the morons on the line.

    Dude, I'm from South California (not a typo) where we have real earthquakes. Sorry but there's a HUGE difference between a 5.8 and even a 6.0!

    In other word, calm down, the world is not ending and you will survive.

    I'd rather deal with earthquakes than hurricanes!
