Earthquake Rattles Some Towns, Not Others
Earthquake Rattles Some Towns, Not Others

The effect of Tuesday's earthquake in Western New York was widespread, but not universal. People in some neighborhoods didn't notice it at all while others were left feeling queasy from the unaccustomed shaking.

Go to the WGRZ-2 On Your Side Facebook page to compare for yourself reports from places where the earthquake was felt to places where it wasn't. (Follow the posts beginning on Tuesday at about 2pm. We asked both questions and received well over 800 responses from across Western New York and beyond.)

Share your earthquake stories below. Did you even feel it? Or not? Where were you at the time? (01:51:03 PM EST.)

Any friends or relatives out of town who felt it? Where were they when it hit?

Here's a link to a photo gallery created by our sister station in Washington, D.C.

Damage from the quake was minor, but included toppling three of the four spires on the central tower of the National Cathedral in D.C. More photos here.

United States Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt has cautioned that the shaking might not be over. "What the concern is, of course, is that this is a foreshock. If it's a foreshock, then the worst is yet to come," McNutt told The Washington Post.
