Who Felt the Earthquake on the East Coast?
It was felt from Richmond, VA up to Massachusetts is what I heard on the news. I work north of Baltimore, MD, on the 4th floor of a 4-story building. At first, I thought it was workers on the roof, but it got more intense and kept going (only seconds I'm sure), but scary enough that we all evacuated the building, wondering what in the world just happened. Someone turned on their car radio and we started getting the reports that it measured 5.9 and was centered some 90 miles south of Washington, DC. What a weird feeling! I have never experienced anything like that before. Legs are still a bit shakey, but I'm slowly returning to work (after I finish this post)!
