Question of the Week:

Where were you during the earthquake and did you feel it happening?


“I was here in the office at Community Park Pool. Just before 2 p.m., I felt a short rumble. I have been in earthquakes before so I knew what it was.”

— Larry Ivan, Princeton

“I was on the top floor of the Princeton Township Municipal building. I did not hear anything but I felt my desk and chair shaking and noticed the walls were swaying. It was very frightening.”

— Annie Criscitiello, Princeton k

“I was in Corning, N.Y., having lunch in a deli. We felt the earthquake. At first we thought it had something to do with building construction, blasting or demolition and then we learned it was an earthquake.”

— Bob Kiser, Princeton


“I was at my house in the living room and we felt it shake. We always have helicopters that fly over the house. I just thought it was a helicopter and then I saw on Facebook that it was an earthquake.”

— Kim Rogers, Princeton

>“I was walking up the stairs in my house and the stairs started to shake. I thought it was vertigo and then the vertigo stopped. My husband called and said that we’d just had an earthquake.”

— Cindy Neely, Hopewell

“I was sitting at my desk at the Princeton Recreation Department office. I was writing and felt a rumbling and saw my desk was shaking. I asked my colleague why is the building shaking; we saw the picture on the wall sway.”

— Stacy Ryan, Princeton
