Earthquakes now!

Sitting at work I felt the ground shake for a few seconds and thought nothing of it until my husband called me a few minutes later to ask if I had felt it. It is crazy especially since we are watching a hurricane out in the Atlantic that is heading our way and it destined to become a major hurricane.

So it turns out there was a 5.9 magnatude earthquake just outside of Richmond Virginia today. It has been felt from Ottawa Canada to parts of South Carolina. It is the biggest earthquake the east coast has had in a very long time.

I have now experienced my very first earthquake.
