    The USGS site shows it was 83 miles SW of Washington D.C. between Charlottesville and Richmond VA.

    While all U.S. Capitol buildings were evacuated, there were no reports of injuries or damage.

    Apparently it was felt in my hometown of Pikeville, KY. Someone even posted pictures of cracks it caused in one of the government buildings. They also evacuated a bank and some other buildings because they were shaking. Crazy how far away it can be felt.

    I have relatives that live right on the DC/Virginia border.

    Thankfully, we've heard from them and know they're OK.

    There was an earthquake in Ohio when I was in the 8th grade that was under a 5 and that was a very strange feeling.

    I live in Northern VA and we definitely felt it, heh. It's all anyone's been talking about today... we don't get earthquakes here, lol. I was at work and stuff was falling off of shelves, etc. Schools are closed tomorrow. Interesting experience.

    5.8 is small when compared to California quakes. I was within 30 miles of the big one in 1989 that disrupted the World Series. That one was a 7.0 I think.

    tremors were felt along much of the east coast, which is strange for being a mild earthquake.
