    Default DC hit by 5.9 earthquake

    Washington (CNN) -- An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 struck Tuesday near the nation's capital and sent shock waves up and down the East Coast.
    "It's one of the largest that we've had there," said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones. Aftershocks were a concern, she said. "People should be expecting (them), especially over the next hour or two," she added.
    There were no immediate reports of injuries, and only minor damage to buildings was reported. "Currently, there have been no reports of damage to buildings, bridges, roads, power grids, the Indian Point nuclear power plant, or other infrastructure," New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said in a statement.
    The quake, which struck at 1:51 p.m., was shallow -- just 3.7 miles deep -- and was located 83 miles southwest of Washington and 41miles northwest of Richmond, Virginia, the USGS said.
    The FBI evacuated its buildings in Washington and New York, though they were returning to the 40-story New York facility by 3 p.m. At the Pentagon, police announced that anyone inside could "shelter in place" while security and emergency personnel checked the building for damage. But shortly thereafter, Pentagon workers were allowed to return to their offices.

    I felt it well and clear in Maryland. My coworker and I immediately ran out of our office, and stood by the emergency exit door, waiting to rush out should the quake get violent. But it only lasted for like 10 seconds, so nothing really happened. Other people in the building, including the janitor lady, were all like "What the hell just happened?"

    I live in VA, pretty close to DC, so I felt it first hand. I was in history class and I felt the building and ground shake. I was a bit confused about what happened in the first few seconds because we barely even have them, but it wasn't all that bad. No one got hurt and nothing collapsed as far as I could see. But Hurricane Irene is something I'm a bit worried about. The epicenter was near a nuclear power plant so that was something we were nervous about. All in all, I was surprised when I checked to see it on the news. They really took it out of proportion.

    The only reason why a simple harmless earthquake was big news is because we barely get any earthquake on the East Coast. This was one last winter, too, which caught everyone off-guard. But I didn't notice it at all since that one happened in the morning when I was still asleep.

    That's true. I didn't feel the one last winter either. And I have to admit I was really surprised that our side of the country got something!

    So long as no one got hurt. I have a number of friends in the area and they all are okay.

    We get them in Illinois from time to time. Nothing really bad though.

    The East Coast is generally and genuinely boring (save for NYC), so it's about time we got an earthquake to jolt up some fun =D

    Pfui. If a similar earthquake were to occur in Japan, the trains would probably stop for a couple of minutes, and then life would resume as if nothing happened.

    We've been getting aftershocks of simiar maginitude on a frequent basis for a while now after March. There was a pretty big one in the Tohoku region just a week ago, but nobody as much as flinches anymore.
