TIME MACHINE ... 1886 Eastern Shore Earthquake!

Fortunately, earthquakes on the Eastern Shore are few and far between.

The following item is from GHOTES (Genealogy And History Of The Eastern Shore Of Virginia..
www.ghotes.net ):

"In 1886 there was an earthquake on the Eastern Shore. On August 25th all clocks stopped at 9:53pm. At Craddockville ornaments on mantles were knocked to the floor and broken."
