Earthquake!

Wow, my house just shook and shook. Neighbors ran into street.
No damage other than being scared!

5.9 in Virginia (See CNN here). It was felt all the way up to NY, NJ & CT.

I am in Danbury, CT right now and felt it. We were in the office and walls started shaking (I thought it was just my chair at first). So we ran outside. It lasted less than a minute but it was scary. This is the first time that I have felt an earthquake and I hope is the last one. What a scary feeling!

my daughter, who is currently in baltimore, remembered from her sf bay area earthquake experiences to call out of state to get messages to people also in the earthquake zone..
message delivered... why are all these people running outside? the houses and buildings there are brick!! she is locating her gas shut off valve in case this is a fore shock.
if i recall, there are some dangerous faults that aren't in california...

So glad you are all none the worse, I am in NC did not feel it here. I am from CA so you get use to them however I'm not sure the buildings here are built for them.
