    Tremors in NY. Just flipped to MSNBC and apparently earthquake in D.C.

    I have never felt an earthquake before. That was freaky.

    Yeah. It was. Stuff fell off our walls. Saw on someone's facebook that they felt it in Canada.

    We had it here in Richmond. I've never felt one like that before.

    Sounds like the thing went through much of North America: I'm watching the Indians-Mariners game in Cleveland, and they said they felt something. And a friend i upstate South Carolina tweeted that he felt something too.

    5.8. Wild. That's more than a hard sneeze.

    Colorado just had a 5.3 overnight -- its largest in nearly 40 years.

    It's pretty freaky that they're happening in Colorado and Virginia and NYC.

    Pentagon being evacuated.

    5.8 is a good shaker, even for California. For the East Coast -- that's a biggie.

    Just felt the earth shake in Mercer County, NJ and a minute later someone I was on the phone with in New York City was saying "what was that, I just felt the building shake".

    I haven't felt an earthquake since 1986, the morning I was taking the SAT.

    MSNBC: Centered near Charlottesville, Va.

    Epicenter was Mineral, VA, between Richmond and Charlottesville.

    EDIT: Should point out that's about 20 miles from Lake Anna, which has a nuclear power plant.
