Tremors from the earthquake that occurred on the east coast Monday could be felt right here in mid-Michigan earlier today.
A few people felt the shaking inside Boji Tower, a downtown Lansing building.
"We were just sitting here working, doing our thing and the next thing I know I feel my chair rocking back and forth," said Zach Gorchow.
"The plants were swinging back and forth and it was just shaking, felt like an earthquake," said Jennifer Yocum.
Both Yocum and Gorchow work on the 8th floor of the Boji building. They say the shaking lasted less than 30 seconds, but was much more than just the building moving in the wind.
They said it felt different than anything they'd eve felt in that building before. Some thought it might be construction at first, but the intensity of the shaking convinced them it must be an earthquake.
MSU professor Kazuya Fujita calls it and unusual event. @
"This was the event that was felt here as recorded here," Fujita said, pointing to the seismograph, "So this is a recording of the ground motion at MSU."
Fujita explained why we could feel the tremors nearly 700 miles away from the source. Professor Fujita said it's all about geology.
"Earthquakes in the Eastern US are felt over a much wider area because the ground, shall I say, is more solid, so the energy travels farther before it dies out," said Fujita.
He says the shaking might not be over yet. @
"There's likely to be some aftershocks, ya know ya can't predict earthquakes so we don't know where it will go from here," said Fujita.
He says Tuesday's tremors gave him something to kick off classes with next week.
Professor Fujita says the intensity of the tremors we felt here only registered at about a 2 or 3 on a scale of 12.
