Re: Earthquake in DC!

yeah its epicenter was about 10-15 miles west of here in the Glen Alen/Short Pump area. I thought it was a tornado or nearby explosion because who the hell expects an earthquake of that magnitude in VA?! Slept through a few of these in San Diego, but definitely a crazy occurence and what makes it worse is there is possibly also a hurricane possibly hitting the area this weekend.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

Was scary, first time I've ever experienced what an earthquake feels like. Can't call anyone on my cell.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

Grant Paulsen on twitter : I think an earthquake just occurred. The media trailer at #Redskins Park just shook and @JohnKeim said "Albert????" #Redskins

Re: Earthquake in DC!

Felt it here in VB too. Haven't felt one since I was in Japan in '88. Nothing falling or shaking, just that weird off-balance feeling.

Nothing in Chicago, but I know people who said they felt it as far northwest as Detroit.
