Earthquake - Tuesday 23rd August 2011

Well today we had an earthquake,it was about 1:55 PM local time. Yes can you believe that, in our area?  Well actually yes I can.  Between 5.8 and 6.0 on the Richter scale.  I was at me desk at work and everything started shaking.  We've had a lot of construction going on in our building but almost instantly I knew it was more than that.  I went into the main office and said "I think it's can earthquake" of course what did I do?  Nothing, now that's a bit silly.

The epicenter I believe was 90 miles south of Washington DC, and was felt up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

Well that's enough excitement  for one day.
