Scarsdale Reacts to Virginia Earthquake

SCARSDALE, N.Y. – The earthquake of 5.9 magnitude that struck in Virginia today has been felt hundreds of miles away in Westchester. Some people in Scarsdale did not feel the ground shake during the quake that hit just before 2 p.m.

James Pascale works at Villa Roma, a pizzeria near the Scarsdale train station. Pascale said he did not feel the earthquake but found out about it quickly when his girlfriend called him from Queens.

"I thought she was joking," Pascale said.

He said he was not worried at all when he heard about the earthquake because New Yorkers have survived worse ordeals. He only watched the news about it briefly.

"I turned it on for two seconds and once I found out it was no big deal, just go about your day," Pascale said. "It's not like epicenter was in New York."

Val Soukhovskoi works at Framing at Depot Place. He said he felt nothing, but his manager called him from Chappaqua to tell him about it.

Soukhovskoi said that several people in Chappaqua became frightened and left their buildings. But he did not notice any disturbance in Scarsdale.

"Maybe I missed it," Soukhovskoi said.
