Earthquake Hits Home


A 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered northwest of Richmond, Va., shook much of Washington, D.C., and was felt as far north as Rhode Island and New York City.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was 3.7 miles deep. Shaking was felt at the White House and all over the East Coast, as far south as Chapel Hill, N.C. Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were evacuated. The quake was in Mineral, Va., in Louisa County.

Hope everyone is okay. My younger brother was evacuated during one of his classes at law school in Richmond. From the Facebook statuses I see, seems like most everyone else did the same. Man, this world is fragile.
