Fleur de Lys (12695.8 km NNE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Last Night at about 12:30pm I felt a sway on the Land when I was standing. The Sway lasted about 3-5 mins. Yet We are a long ways from the Quake, itself. I'm thinking that with all the Snowmelt at this time of the year, North America. Is adding Pressure to the earth crust and this may add to the Volcano in Hawaii ?? I'm thinking that Hawaii will split into and maybe a tital wave will be caused.
