Just FYI -

M5.8 – Virginia

Mouse over the locations on the map and you will see the intensity in you area or your closest area.

Magnitude 5.9 - VIRGINIA


The only damage reported so far

Epicenter was 8 miles west of me. No damage reported thus far between me and Richmond. Hope Vitauta is ok. She is also near Mineral

We had to evacuate our building. Those in the back of the building thought a train jumped the track and hit us! No damages at all.

we are ok, thanks for asking, podonell. this quake sure did shake us up, though. even mom, who doesn't react to much of anything these days, felt it viscerally. little actual damage has been reported, considering the size of the quake. checks continue to be done on gas leaks, building structures, etc. nuclear reactors in nearby lake anna were shut down just as a precautionary measure. most of the area school closings are presumably precautionary as well. extreme weather, in the u.s. and around the world in recent times, is every bit as frightening to contemplate as is the threat of terrorism. to me anyway....

A 5.9 shaker on the west coast would hardly make the local news...

Now, all I hear on TV are a bunch of east coast whimps!
