5.8 quake hit a little while ago...I'm in Cincinnati so I didn't feel it (coworker of mine says he felt the floor move right before we heard about it though...). Hope everyone in the area is ok.

On a side note, I heard Fox is reporting that the Washington Monument is tilted now...

Lmao! Yeah, I've been hearing from different people that there isn't much damage so far, if any. I'm from Miami, FL, so I have no feel for earthquakes. Hopefully, nothing major has or will happen.

Glad I got home before it happened. I had problems in VA on the way up and back from PA and just got home yesterday. All I needed was an earthquake lol

I was in my office on the 12th floor...thought the worst at first. But then realized it wasn't what I thought it was. Then I realized I parked my baby in the parking garage...ran down 12 flights, across two city blocks and a busy street...and all was well.

The damage isn't bad at all...but pictures and things fell off shelves...things in the man cave were shuffled around.

Honestly, the worst thing about the whole thing was what we all thought it was. In my line of work I understand the threat...and I'll take a 5.8 earthquake any day of the week!

Sorry to hear that guys. That's why I love California, even tough the world tells us that "we are waiting for the big one" we might no see that in our lifes, maybe the kids of the kids of my kids will. (unless big boss gets mad and decides to move a little bit of dirt around). But anyways, good to know only a couple chairs were the major devastation =}

Re: Earthquake in Virginia and D.C.

I felt it too. A girl in my office was yelling "What the heck?" I told her to calm down and that we were having a minor earthquake. They are rare in NJ but this is the 3rd one I've felt. It was so minor here I don't think it would have even stirred my coffee.

Re: Earthquake in Virginia and D.C.

The Weather Channel says yesterday's east coast earthquake was caused by an unknown fault line running under D.C. and through Virginia. It is now being called Obama's Fault, though Obama will say it's really Bush's Fault. Other theories are that it was the founding fathers rolling over in their graves or that what we all believed to be an earthquake was actually the effects of a 14.6 trillion dollar check bouncing in Washington
