So, an earthquake hit the East Coast Thursday evening.

Holy s*** anyone else feel that earthquake?

According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake was a magnitude 4.1 with an epicenter near Dover, Delaware.

A spokesperson for the Dover Police Department told BuzzFeed News there were no reports of damage or injuries. However, the quake was felt throughout the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC, areas.

People were (I'm so sorry, please let me have this) SHOOK.

I didn’t feel the earthquake but that’s not surprising since I can no longer feel anything at all.

If we're lucky, that earthquake was the Four Horsemen rumbling by and this bullshit will be over soon ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
