Take the time, follow this link below and tell the USGS what you felt, no matter how minor it might have been! Every piece of info is valuable!

Thanks Jerry. What I felt was not so minor. We are in a huge Class A office building on the 24th floor and this sucker was swaying pretty good. The building manager just made this announcement: "As was reported an earthquake struck the east coast, however, we still feel it is safer to remain in the building, although you may evacuate. Please use the stairs if you evacuate."

So, its safer inside the building.....but not safe. That's what I heard at least.

I felt it here at work down in Maxton, NC which is near the SC border. Actually, I thought someone was working on the roof on the plant. of course, down here everyone is thinking about Irene hitting this coming weekend. Hmmm, maybe the Mayan where right about 2012.

"Mineral Virginia, just south of D.C".

Know exactly where that is.

The first link there is to the USGS internet reporting map, they aggregate the reports and build an intensity map.

Man, Jim, that's nuts.

Brendan, my buddy who owns the Bull Moose, where we had drinks, just called and said he felt nothing there. Maybe we should go there and start chugging, so we too, can feel nothing!!

I felt the ground under me move and I felt this building sway with my computer swaying. I thought it was just a wind squall from the hurricane a little early. No folks, something big and bad is going on.

Well at least I know what it feels like now.

Well, I'll take any excuse to drink beer, but I definitely felt it here in mid-town.

It's all true folks, we aren't making this up. If this continues, I'm gonna meet my lawyer on the beach with his bottle of tequila and wait for the end. That's his plan when the end comes head to the beach with a bottle of tequila.

Could feel it here too in NC - the whole house was shaking.

No. 2 for me. First was in Tokyo in '05 when my Japanese girlfriend I were awakened by violent shaking in out hotel in the Ginza about 4:30 AM - truly a rude awakening...she was used to it, though. I wasn't. That one was much worse, although I'm sure it was much more extreme near DC.

Hope everyone is OK!

Bigger earthquakes have hit New York in the past, Gina. Calm down.

There is so much potential for re-written post abuse here...

Rich, I too have been awakened by an angry woman violently shaking me. What did you do to piss her off?

Oh, you were talking about the earthquake, sorry.
