I felt it in North East Pennsylvania (Lehigh Valley area) at around 2p.m. eastern time. Made my entire apartment building sway and my glasses in the kitchen rattled!

I'm actually a little excited, as I never thought I'd be able to feel an earthquake on the east coast.

Good lord, guys.
Go outside and find a shade tree, and have a cocktail until your nerves settle.

It would scare the stuffing outta me, too.

5.8 magnitude. The epicenter was North West of Richmond Va. We had stuff flying off of the shelves. First time I have ever felt that. Could not imagine living in California.

Before everyone starts dropping all the really wacky conspiracies, like man made Quakes, lets put today's northeast Earthquake into perspective.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

"Believe it or not, the Northeast US is earthquake country! No it does not have the high frequency of earthquakes of California. However, the Northeast has experienced damaging earthquakes in the past and they will occur again in the future."

Thanks for the input! We ATS'rs don't get very many chances to experience these things first hand and now we (as a collective) have the ability to dissect this (these) event(s) and refine earthquake predictions.

Felt in SE PA, i'm in a huge building and the entire place was rocking back and forth. Our fault line has been past due for over 100 years if my memory serves me right...

This means almost the entire east coast just moved slightly from Virginia and northward.

Whoa. Are there fault lines in this area? Any history of quakes?

Pentagon and White house evacuted cuz of quake - This is pretty scary for us who aren't used to this on the East Coast.

The Californian's are probably laughing at us like we do the Southerner's in the snow!

I can't believe it hit such a large chunk of the United States. So far it was felt from Michigan to Manhattan .
