    Actually that's the second.

    When you think about it, it would take quite a shake to knock one of those over.

My coworkers all felt it but didn't realize what it was until I told them. First earthquake here that I've actually felt and it was really odd and I could definitely live the rest of my life not feeling one bigger than this one.
    You got me... Leaving work I asked around the other offices and their answers were the same. Felt nothing and most were not aware until others notified them. So that leaves an earthquake in the early 70s as the only one that I ever felt.

    Aftershock just rolled through. Mild - 4.2.

    We were outside at the time. We could hear the rumble coming down the road and for several seconds after it passed. Wife is pretty freaked out by the whole deal.

    One fascinating clip was on the Washington Post site showed the White House as the quake hits. Watch how quickly federal agents get out on the White House roof - within seconds of the first tremor

    Breaking News (for laughs):

    Obama administration issued a statement on the Earth Quake. Apparently is was centered on a rare fault line known as the "Bush's Fault".

    I'm not as testy as some. Thought it was funny, Slyder!

    Re: Earthquake

    I felt it. But I was in DC not all that far away from the center. I was out near the elevators on the floor I work and all at once everything started shaking. I thought a bomb had gone off in the bulding or near it. I ran back to my cube and grabbed my stuff and got out of the building. I was surprised they let us back in the building as quickly as they did. This happened about 10 minutes til 2 pm and they let back in just before 2:30. There are buildings still closed in DC this morning. The Washington Monument and Washington Cathederal had some damage. Some peoples homes had some damage. My didn't so I was lucky on that point. It just a while to get home last night. The subway was running on restricted speeds while they checked the tracks for damage. I think everyone left work at the same time too so the subway and the roads were packed with people getting home. That was certainly the heaviest earthquake I had felt. It did shake things up around the DC area.

    It is a little amusing how much press it is getting. But as someone who has also experienced California quakes, I must say they just feel stronger over here on the right side of the map. Even the tiny one earlier in the year felt at least twice as strong as it would have out west. It is a combination of building standards and the older, denser crust in the east.

    Both my son & daughter walked home. My daughter generally walks to and from work most days anyway unless the weather's horrid. This was my son's first time walking home since he only started his job a few weeks ago. Only took him about 20 minutes, so it was a nice exercise (in more ways than one) seeing how long it takes anyway.

    Re: Earthquake

    I felt nothing in Oxford.

    ... and I found Slyder's joke pretty funny.
