    Earthquake

    Did anyone just feel that earthquake? I sure felt it here in northern Cincinnati at about 1:54pm while sitting at my desk surfing RZ

    I was listening to sports talk radio in Columbus and the guys on the radio started flipping out. I didn't feel it here in Springfield, but some people did. And most of the people I know in Columbus felt it. Crazy.

    My wife said her office sounds like a chicken coop. We East Coasters aren't used to these things.

    With the world ending next year, they better get used to things like this.

    Felt it here in New Haven, Connecticut. Been awhile since I felt an earthquake - grew up in Alaska and went to college in L.A. Eerie feeling.

    Re: Earthquake

    CNN has this to say:

    An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 struck in northern Virginia, the U.S. Geological Survey said Tuesday.

    The quake was felt in Washington, D.C., and as far away as North Carolina and New York, witnesses said. While all U.S. Capitol buildings were evacuated, there were no reports of injuries or damage.
    Maybe that's what you felt, since it seems to have had a pretty far reach.

    I'm in my office downtown Cincinnati on the 12th floor and I thought someone had walked up behind me and was shaking my chair.

    Weird. Earthquake effects felt in Brooklyn. I'd never felt an earthquake before. About over by the the time I figured out what was going on.

    Our building was evacuated here in northern NJ. I used to live in the SF Bay Area and this was as strong as an earthquake as I've ever felt.

    Re: Earthquake

    The door of my class near Dunbar, West Virginia shook and only one person noticed it. Not sure if that means anything. No one else seems to have noticed so it might have just been that specific door.

    Re: Earthquake

    Saw the computer on my desk start to shake here in Long Island. My first reaction was that it was aftershock from a bomb or something like that

    A slight overreaction I guess

    Swaying and stuff moving is a nice tremble, it's when the building shakes like it's a dice in Gods hand that's scary
