Initial indications show it was very shallow, ~3.7 miles deep.
Twitter indicates that it may have been felt as far north as Boston area and even west into Ohio, not sure on southern extent but I would expect at least reaching Georgia. Ground in some of those areas is very wet and IIRC that would allow the waves to travel much easier along the surface.
DENVER — The largest natural earthquake in Colorado in more than a century struck Monday night in the state’s southeast corner, but there had been no reports of damage or injuries.
The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 5.3 and centered about nine miles from the city of Trinidad, hit at 11:46 p.m. local time. It was felt as far away as Greeley, about 350 miles north, and into Kansas and New Mexico, said Julie Dutton, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo.
