I'm sure there will be more, but this is, don't forget, just 30 minutes after the earthquake happened.
Got love the interwebs.
And the awesome continues...a Facebook page has been created for earthquake survivors and as of this posting, already has 41k likes.
And from Chelsford...a k-cup is a victim of the earthquake:
Yea, an hour and seven minutes after the earthquake...that Facebook page has 49k likes. Wow.
From WBZ on Twitter: The largest know New England earthquake was a 6.5 magnitude back in the 1600s...this one was a 4.6 magnitude.
