Re: Earthquake in DC!

At first, I thought the guy living in the room above mine was pounding the floor very loudly. Then the floor started shaking and the mattress that was propped on the side fell down. Then I realized it was an earthquake. Half-excited, I went outside to see if stuff was shaking, but by then, it was pretty much over.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

The main thing is that no one died, right?

Damage is a pisser but that's what insurance is for.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

I just have to laugh about my area. It was around a 2.0 and they were evacuating buildings and sending people home early.

I understand the need to err on the side of caution these days, I still find it funny though. And of course the local news was going nuts about it and making a way bigger deal than it was.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

There was a of of sniggering on the West Coast, mostly from me.

A good point was made by a Cal Tech Geologist/Seismologist that the composition of the DC area makes for a bumpier ride. We're all relaxed and loose over here, geologically speaking.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

It wasnt nothing funny about being on the 5th floor 40 miles from the epicenter of that. 5.8 felt alot worse than it sounds. I dont mind tornados or hurricanes cause i can see them coming, earthquake lil bit of a sneak attack, i dont like that.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

I don't mind the authorities being extra cautious, especially when it comes to old buildings. Luckily I work in a fairly new building in downtown Baltimore, but still there were people checking the structures and whatnot to make sure there was no damage.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

Animals go wild before quake

Well before any humans ducked beneath desks or sought shelter in doorways on Tuesday, wildlife at the zoo started to react to the oncoming earthquake.

But just like humans, some zoo residents barely registered yesterday's major tectonic motion. Zookeepers said throughout the shaking, the giant pandas hardly moved a paw.

There has to be an analogy there.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

When it first happened I thought someone was shaking my chair behind me to get my attention, i turned around and looked, no one there. When i turned around again, my cubicle walls were shaking violently, and people were actually running down the hall and running through the cafeteria to get outside. crazy. I work in winchester, they say it was a true 5.8 there. my mother said she had plates fall out of her cabinet while it was happening. Nuts that something like this happened around here.
