Nearby NY Earthquake


Something was definitely going on with the odd nor’easter for this time of year and this morning close to 2 AM there was an earthquake near Altamont, NY which is about 80 miles WNW of me.  It was centered just to the west of Albany.  I woke up feeling a bit woozy this morning.
