That's my third, but way way bigger than the others which were 2's and localized.

CNN's breaking news quoted Hunter Pence's twitter feed. Nice!

That was nuts. I was in my apartment in Harrisburg and **** started going crazy. I had to pick up my TV and put it on the floor so it wouldn't fall. Then I realized it was an earthquake and realized I shouldn't be worrying about my TV and then I just didn't know what to do. Only lasted like 30 seconds but seemed like a long ass time.

Prepare for more . . .

I have an associates degree in Geology. The jolt we felt in PA might well just be a "foreshock" of an imminent larger quake. This is not unheard of. Keep in mind there was a very high magnitude quake in Colorado this morning and after the 1:51 quake (5.9 RS) with epicenter in VA this afternoon there was another small magnitude (3.3 RS) quake in Albany, NY. Do NOT run outdoors during a tremor. More people are injured and/or killed from falling debris outside when they run into the streets. Best option is to stand in a doorway or get under a table. A significant fault line runs parallel to the Northeast Corridor.

Apparently there was a 2.8 aftershock at about 2:46. Didn't feel any of that. Doubt there will be anything else.

I live in VA. It felt like people were beating on my house, trying to get in. Logically my first order of business was to go lock the door and peek through the curtains looking for zombies.

I was in my basement in Delaware. Everything shook for a good 10 seconds. I realize you always think these things last longer than they do, but this was no 2-3 second thing. I heard the ground/my house rumbling. It was legit.

Then I went upstairs and everything seemed normal. It was sunny. Until I got on the internet, I was honestly worried that I was losing it.

Here in South Jersey that was a 1st for me. My brother lives in California and he is used to them. It was strong enough here to open some kitchen cabinet doors. My pets were freaking out. Went outside and my flagpole was still shaking! Pretty cool but that was enough for me

There was a 2.2 in that area about 6:30 this morning according to USGS. But you look at all the quakes that happen every day, that goes unnoticed. I have a friend up in Albany who says he didn't feel a thing for that one (probably still sleeping) but definitely felt the more recent one in VA all the way up there. They probably are related at some level though.

I've been hearing the foreshock thing too. If that turns out to be the case, and something bigger comes along, I'd expect massive damage in DC, Richmond, and Charlottesville.
