WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- An earthquake that shook the East Coast on Tuesday was felt in Williamsport, Pa., as well.
The Genetti Hotel, where some parents were staying, was evacuated after tremors triggered a fire alarm. Another parent called her husband telling him the house they were at was shaking.
All of this happened about 1:30 p.m., while the Southeast players were taking the field for practice.
