Suffolk County Shaken Up

December 1, 2010 § Leave a comment

Some residents of Suffolk County experienced an unexpected wake-up call this morning.   An earthquake, that registered a 3.9 on the Richter Scale, hit around 10:45am on Nov. 30th about 80 mikes off the cost of Southampton.  According to an article on, the shaking was also felt in parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island.  The tremors were the first in 18 years.  The earthquake has been described by some as a “non-event” because of the lack of damage, and also the lack of awareness of the event.  Students around Stony Brook, including myself, didn’t feel the slightest of tremors.

Despite the fact that some residents felt nothing, the effects of the quake could reportedly be felt over a span of 20 miles.
