Did you feel that shaking right before 2 p.m. on Tuesday? No, it wasn’t CC walking down Fifth Avenue.

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck at 1:51 p.m. in Virginia, and its effects were felt as far south as the Carolinas and as far north as New York, Boston, and even Canada. It was the strongest American earthquake east of the Rocky Mountains since 1891.

The quake was also felt during the Indians-Mariners game in Cleveland.

Watch Video:

It obviously wasn’t like the major earthquake that interrupted the World Series in 1989, but it still had the commentators puzzled.

Did you feel the quake where you were?
