A 5.8 earthquake hit the East coast today causing structusal damage to many places along the coast.

I hope that all our AP' ers living on the East coast are ok tonight.

Yes Faust it was Denver, North Carolina that also felt the earthquake. I don't think they suffered any damages.

The epicenter was just outside of Mineral, Virginia. Here in New Jersey, I didn't feel anything, but my sister's computer chair was moving and her wind chimes were swaying. Our neighbors also felt it. This is the first time we've felt one here in NJ in my lifetime. Even near the epicenter, the damage, for the most part, was minimal, and no lives were lost.

Yes thankfully no lives were lost.

I'm glad to hear you are ok Lady K. And glad you are ok too GreyFuss.

I heard earlier that they have closed the Washington monument and are inspecting the other monuments. I hope the Washington monument is ok.

We actually felt the tremor all the way here in Northwestern PA. I was sitting in my office when I felt my chair move. Everyone stepped out of their offices and said almost simultaneously, "Did you feel that?" I went online and within a few minutes got the news of the quake in Virginia. It's my understanding that since the tectonic plates in the Northeast are large, that is why the quake was felt over such a vast area.

Hi JK. Glad to hear you are ok also. The large tectonic plates in the North East is also my understanding why the quake was felt over such a large area.
