East Coast Earthquake

Hope everyone is ok, certainly nothing major, but reminded me of back on Oahu for a second.

Magnitude 5.9 - VIRGINIA


The only damage reported so far

East Coast Earthquake

Apparently I missed it yet again! I happened to be at the grocery store and never felt a thing! No shelves swaying or anything! Back in the early 80's an earthquake hit NE Ohio. I was at the Cleveland Zoo and again didn't feel anything. The one today they are saying was a 5.9 so that is fairly significant. You would have thought it would be noticeable. Everyone on Facebook is commenting from Maryland to South Carolina to Cleveland.

Makes me wonder if it was just the start of something, not to be a fear monger, but quakes rarely just happen once.

I understand they felt it all the way to Joisy!

They had one in southern Colorado also.

We felt it here. We evacuated my office building. I'm home now. Everyone is okay here, just a lot of folks around here shaken up (no pun intended) and traffic is really bad.

This was my 1st earthquake but I work with 2 guys from California who were like " oh, yeah, that's an earthquake." and back to work...
