    Exclamation 5.9 Earthquake

    A 5.9 Earthquake hit the East Coast. Epicenter was Mineral, VA which is very close to where I live.

    Bricks fell off of the Washington Monument. Now it is tilting dangerously.

    This earthquake tied with the largest one in Virginia over 100 years ago.

    The earthquake was felt all the way from North Carolina to Toronto, Canada.

    Well, I am far enough away from DC, so I should be fine. I don't have much stuff on shelves, but I am still worried.

    Rock n roll...I grew up in LA. I now live in Oregon and many times I'll wake up at night when we have an earthquake and go "oh, an earthquake" and fall back asleep.

    I guess living in LA made me a bit jaded. My hubby freaks out of course.

    I hope everyone is ok.

    I was eating lunch at a restaurant and I thought someone was shaking the bench I was on (a long cushion shared by all the other tables along the strip.) Then I saw that everything was shaking! :0
    This is a signature.

    Yeah, they are saying it travels VERY well in our old, solid rock. Not like jello bowl in ca!

    Scariest thing was how long it lasted! 40 seconds felt like forever! I swear, it was longer. But like SE, I am VERY close to it. Go boating all the time a couple miles away from center.

    Great news is the nuclear reactor that is less than 5 miles from center is okay!

    Was it scary? I have never been in an earthquake before.

    Same. I sleep through most earthquakes. But I hope you earthquake rookies are doing alright.
