Town of Poughkeepsie Residents Wake Up To Quake

In the earl morning hours of Wednesday June 26th, 2024, a Town of Poughkeepsie community was woken up to a loud boom and a shaking sensation.

I have family in the area and received 2 text messages around 3:15 am both asking "Did you feel that shake?!" Around 6 am this morning, there were no reports of what officially happened, but local Facebook groups began to speculate.

"Did you hear a boom?" is a common question in these groups, so many of the responses were sarcastically responding to the question with answers like "Well, yesterday was Taco Tuesday" or "That was, I rolled over."

Many also thought the quake might have to do with the rock quarry in the area, but that idea was shot down as several community members explained they wouldn't blast rocks at 3am.

While hilarious, it didn't help those who were concerned with what actually happened.  After several hours, official word came in from the United States Geological Survey.
