2.1 magnitude earthquake centered near Fredrick-Carroll lineCarroll County Times

The USGS reports a 2.1 magnitude earthquake centered in eastern Frederick County near the Carroll County line. The quake struck around 5:50 a.m.

The quake was centered about 3 miles from Linganore, 11 miles from Westminster and 13 miles from Eldersburg.

I did not feel it in Alexandria, Va. which is not surprising since I’m about 40 miles away. My son might have though, he woke up around that time. I asked him if he felt the room shaking when he woke up and he said yes, though 4 year olds don’t always offer the most accurate reporting.

Did my Maryland readers notice the quake?
