Earthquake in east coast!!

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake just hit the east coast of the USA just a little while ago! Shaking could be felt as far north as New Hampshire and as far south as North Carolina, including NY and Washington DC, epicenter being in Virginia.


Gosh, although earthquakes are relatively common in CA, I'm still jumpy whenever I hear there's a quake somewhere, especially there had been so many big ones happened around the world these few years. Shaking on the east coast is not common either, and I can only imagine people there must be frantic. I saw from reports that people in New York Manhattan just rushed out to Time Square and stayed there.


Hope there aren't too much damages and injuries. Although the magnitude was not exceptionally large, people there may not be as earthquake aware as those in earthquake zone like CA.


Gotta go home tonight and re-check my earthquake preparation supplies. You just never know :(
