A 3.6-Magnitude Earthquake That Surprised Thousands

On Friday at 5 a.m., a 3.6-magnitude earthquake woke up people living across the Baltimore area as well as in “D.C. Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. People in Columbia, Owings Mills, Carroll County, and Odenton.” currently no reports of significant injuries but geologists are shocked since a severe earthquake has not hit that region of the US since one that occurred in the year of 1758 and one in 1939.

LA Times claims: Alvin Borenstein of Randallstown said the quake woke up his entire household.
“All of a sudden, we felt the house shake,” he said. “It woke my granddaughter up, it woke my son up, and it woke me and my wife up. The house shook. We didn’t know what it was.”
Of his 60 years in Randallstown, he said he’s never had an experience like that one.
