TV news in UK saying 5.8 earthquake in Virginia - government/parliament buildings in Washington evacuated.

It was strong enough here in North Carolina to cause mild alarm. That was my first quake...

Yes! Wow! It lasted for quite a while. I lived in L.A. for five years or so and I knew what it was happening. I kept waiting to feel the really big rolls and sideways jerking! It was more like a really long rumble with a bump or five. My heart is thundering still.

I hope no one was seriously injured or that we don't have any nuclear concerns! Wow!

I am only hearing about this now, so I had to look it up on our local news. I was taking a nap and I felt something that startled me and the pull chain on a floor lamp was tinging against the post. My first thought was that some animal got into my house and jumped on the bed, even though that has never happened before.
I think that was my first experience with one.

awww the east coast got a lil quake...thats cute :laughing::tongue22:

Not little enough to be condescendingly treated. As a veteran of decades of California quakes, I can say that this one was a fairly healthy "roller", with a surprisingly significant duration and a healthy amount of structure shake.

CNN just cut away from the live coverage of the storming of Gaddafi's fortress, to bring us a breathless telephone report from Wolf Blitzer telling how he rode out the quake which at first he thought was caused by some construction workers on the upper floors. Apparently, he was hustling on down to his "Situation Room" (is it in a bunker?) to fill us in on the latest developments. From the live shots they showed, the White House and Capitol were still standing.

I switched it back to Al Jazeera.

A 5.9 can be a significant quake if the geology is right. If there is a lot of alluvial soil instead of bedrock, the shock waves can travel very easily and further, and be amplified. I think. Is there a geologist in the room?

I am not a geologist but I play one at parties and you are correct, the earth's crust here is old and cold, which results in the efficient transmission of energy...which is why the temblor was felt through such a broad portion of the country.

I've lived here most of my 188 years, and as I said earlier, this was my first quake.

Now if we can just avoid locusts and that pesky hurricane...

Is there a better word than "hifalutin"? It sounds like an expensive cologne. "Hifalutin by Yeardly. For the sophisticated gentleman ... and his amore".

In the only other State that begins with "K"!

This is exactly what the geological expert on MSNBC said that for the East Coast -- this is signficant. My son in Cincinnati called me and said his wife had called and said the blinds in her office were shaking back and forth!! The quake was felt as far away as Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Toronto & Chicago! (and they've "downgraded" it to a 5.8) Evidently there may be some structural damage to the central pillar of the National Cathedral!

Attention please: you can't have an earthquake without Lucy!!!! East Coast Quake Unlikely, But No Surprise | NBC Los Angeles

Dr. Lucy Jones over at Cal-Tech is a Southern California treasure. She burst on the scene around the time of the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake (ironically measured at 5.9 as well) and has been entertaining us ever since. I really think her orgasms generated from earthquake lectures exceed the pleasure she derives from any hetero or lesbian sex. :biggrin1:
