Here are some tweets in the #HoCoMD thread about the earthquake:

I did not feel it up here in Carroll County (of course I was asleep at the time). Did you feel it this morning? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Did not feel it here in Columbia, but that’s because we were asleep. We absolutely felt one in Clarksville a few (maybe more than a few now!) years ago. The family was in the kitchen and one of the kids’ friends, who was from California, told us to get in the doorway. I don’t know if we were more confused about the shaking or what she told us to do.
