    Earthquake in South Jersey?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Michael Caposole, from Williamstown, New Jersey, captured video of his dining room chandelier swaying due to the earthquake felt on August 23, in the east coast of the U.S.. He was sitting by his dining room table with his computer when it occurred, 'I thought I was dizzy and it took a couple of seconds to notice the lights moving.' He says this is the first time he has experienced an earthquake.

    As I was sitting at my computer I started to feel dizzy and shaky... but then I realized it wasn't me because anything hanging, like the chandelier in front of me, was also moving... at that moment I realized I was experiencing my first tremor, or earthquake if you would.  I proceeded to run outside where I felt more safe.  Needless to say, people started posting on their Facebook's(tm) the same occurrence all over South Jersey.
