Wow, 5.9 in VA.

Hope those people are okay because I doubt most civilian things on this side of the country are built to withstand ANY sort of quake.

Here a 6.0 in California is considered a hiccup or a speed bump.

Right between Charlottesville and Richmond.

We were gonna go to Busch Gardens this weekend.

It took a hurricane and earthquake to postpone that trip.

That was weird. Building started to shake and everyone just stared at each other.

I feel dizzy.

If a hurricane is approaching be sure to stop off at the third island of the CBBT and drop a line. Good fishing when those low pressure systems approach, and if it get "hairy" just park in one of thee tunnels. You'll be safe.

....you missed out. I love that Busch Gardens. Haven't rode the Lochness in like 10 years, but I grew up about 45 minutes from there so we went all the time and had season passes

I'm in Delaware and felt it too. We east coasters are used to hurricanes, but we're rookies as far as the ground shaking. Weird feeling for sure.

There's also a great little raw bar near the Williamsburg lodge which used to serve 25 cent oyters on the half shell for happy hour. When I was building an addition to the lodge it was a must stop on the way home.

It is downright hairy riding on the front edge of one of those on the Bridge-Tunnel as I found out back in the early 90's...

Just drove home through suburban Virginia on my way to DC. Didn't see any major damage to bridges, buildings, and other facilities. Still there are might be a few things that are now structurally compromised.
