Earthquake Felt in Yorktown Buildings

YORKTOWN, N.Y.-- The bikers at the bike path didn’t feel it, the moms at Downing Park didn’t feel it, but the staff at Mount Kisco Medical Group right across the street sure felt it.

Nearly a dozen staff members, clad in scrubs stood outside the building at 1825 Commerce Street said they knew for sure it was an earthquake.

“We could feel the whole building swaying and swaying,” said Barbra Rich-Gardener who works in the building. “We felt it move and we all left the building right away.”

People standing literally across the street, waiting on the gross by the park for others to take their road test said they didn’t feel a single thing, except perhaps the vibrations from their cell phone of others asking if they had felt it—which was the only way they found out about the earthquake.

Lieutenant Soravilla of the Yorktown Police Department said as of 3 p.m. Tuesday the department had not received a single call in regards to the earthquake.

“Some of us here felt it at town hall, but then some didn’t,” said David Humphrey, executive assistant to the town supervisor. “I was sitting at my desk and I felt it and stood up away from the corner…no one else did so I sat back down and thought it was me.”
