According to Megyn Kelly, cellular service is disrupted all over the area. FOX can’t get through to USGS or anyone.

Also, just in from a FOX producer in a plane on the runway at JFK, apparently JFK has been shut down (unofficial)

I’m on the western side of the Appalachian chain (Johnson City, TN) and it was a significant shake here. Wasn’t online but jumped on to post a query thread. Didn’t realize there were three or four already up!

Does washington even have a fault zone?

Epicenter was west of Richmond. There are numerous old, not very active, faults in the Shenandoah Valley, the Blue Ridge and piedmont.

We felt it here in northern Vermont. Google Earth says we are 511 miles away from the epicenter. Pretty amazing.

“cellular service is disrupted all over the area.”

More likely it is stressed rather than down.

I AM NO LONGER AN EARTHQUAKE VIRGIN

I slept through one many years ago in NJ. And did not feel this one even though friends all over town did. So I can't say if that makes me still an earthquake virgin or not.

Northern Virginia: books, maps, photos knocked off shelves all over the house. Water sloshed out of cat bowls. A large hourglass took a high dive off a bookcase to its doom. The Ann Coulter doll somebody gave me on the first FR cruise also fell, but is made of sterner stuff. Cats are gradually emerging from under beds.

Felt it in Southwestern Pa. I used to live in Southern California so I’m used to it. But people here are all shook up about it. Hopefully it’s not a prelude to something worse.
