Hope it's nothing to worry about. Such small earthquake shouldn't do any damages.

Well if there is a problem we probably won't hear about it for at least 24 hrs, and maybe even a week or two, lol.

I hate feeling so powerless to all these crazy happenings the world over.

"Unusual event" is the lowest of four emergency situations, so it should be clarified in 24 hours.

Right now the North Anna power station is using it's diesel engine to cool reactor, as it shut down after the quake.

Hello everyone, i find it strange that in the past two days weve had 9 minor quakes in colorado, and now 5.8 in virginia. The virginia quake is interesting because its rare. But also because their are many reactors around the epicenter. My question is, is how are all these related. And now "unusual events" hmmmm sounds kinda like japan. Mabe not to that extent, but do you think all of them are related? Mabe magnetic polar shift?
