So there are dangerous faults on the east coast. I knew about the Madrid fault...but I wasn’t aware of those on the east coast. Yikes.

Two Nuclear plants have been ‘taken offline’.

Don’t know if that means ‘knocked’ offline or not?

Landlines and cells disrupted, that’s kind of weird, no? And shutting down any airports...never mind the big ones. How can they do that for a 5.8 quake?

What that means is we can have big earthquakes.

I increasingly admire Japan’s stoicism.

Japan gets earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, super-sized thunderstorms, and occasional "lake effect" snow.

They have reason to be stoic.

Hey Libertyrocks! Hope all is well with you too. ‘ican’tbelieveit’ posted this below in response to my post earlier. That’s about all I know about it.

ROFL! I live in Fairfax, VA. (near the epicenter, I think I just heard, which was south and west of DC.) I thought it was my washing machine off balance! I’ve only been through 1 earthquake before ~ one in Montana a few years ago. I live in a 200 unit apartment building and while the shaking was going on I was thinking that I was very impressed with the builders if my washer could shake my apartment walls! lol I’m such a dingbat! I grew up in Maine. Not any earthquakes there in my memory. So, when I feel shaking the last thought that comes to mind is earthquake.

Megyn Kelly finally mentioned the 2 North Anna nuclear plants (close to the epicenter). They have been shut down.

Expect some aftershocks.

IE, this may be the last “earthquake” in the region for decades (or maybe not...)

but there are usually (sometimes large) aftershocks
to be expected.

But then again they probably dont have the earthquake building codes like we do out here on the west cost. A 5.9 out here would cause very light damage.

I've heard that the ground is much more broken up in the west, so the vibrations aren't transmitted as well there as in the east.

Glad you two (and all) are okay!

Felt two, quick heavy jolts out here in the hinterlands of Westmoreland County. Husband felt it at his workplace in New Stanton; one son is home from HS and the light standards swayed, classroom tvs shook.

I’m off on Tuesdays and our dog is upset. He yelped in the moments BEFORE I felt the first ‘pop’ then the second (rocked under our feet). He is either not over it, or spooked that something else is up.

Did not feel it in Atlanta GA. That sucks. I've always wanted to experience a fatal earthquake, tornado, or extraterrestrial invasion.

Anything, actually, so long as it's fatal.
