The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed a 2.2 magnitude #earthquake Friday afternoon in #berks County. The Berks County Department of Emergency Services posted on their facebook page that they were aware of an explosion or earthquake in the Wyomissing area and to not call 911 unless there was an emergency to report. They were overwhelmed with callers reporting loud noise and it prevented callers from getting through with real emergencies. The 2.2 magnitude quake was confirmed by the USGS in Spring Ridge, just after 1:10 pm.
Had a lovely visit with my daughter to @padutchgifts ! If you haven’t been you should go immediately- they are wonderful folks and have an amazing collection. The collection and owners, Dolores and Felicia will be featured in my upcoming book, Pennsylvania Dutch Design: A History of Kitsch, Folk Art and More. #bigdaddyhex#bigmamahex
