In case you haven't heard, a 5.8 earthquake struck Mineral, Virginia this afternoon, northwest of Richmond. It's the strongest earthquake to hit the East Coast since the late 1800s, and was felt from Georgia to Canada. The quake came right on the heels of another unusual quake that hit Colorado last night. Click for a NY Times article. Did anyone feel either of the quakes? I live in eastern Virginia (the earthquake was in central VA) and I was sitting down, on my laptop, and everything started shaking. Didn't get any damage that we can tell, but it was still the first time I've ever felt one. Apparently the Washington National Cathedral was damaged, and the Capitol and Pentagon were evacuated.
