    Is everyone okay over there? Normally we get the earthquakes, but my facebook and twitter feeds have been all about the earthquake... hope everyone's fine.

    Just outside of DC, in the suburbs here. - - first day back from vacation in New England.

    I have a home office in my basement and the wife and kids were upstairs. I never felt anything like that - - ever. The house felt like it was on skates. Yelled to the family "To the basement, NOW!!!" - - Probably not the best thing to do, probably would've been better to get outside. We're all a little shaken up, but laughing about it now. The kids are now outside playing with the neighbors. My wife and I aren't going to tell the kids what an aftershock is - we'll just be on guard a little.

    Earthquake?

    I thought the rumbling on the ground here in Pa came from Rex Ryan jogging somewhere north in New York :confused:

    I'm in India now and there's an earthquake felt in RI. ******* bizarre.

    The world, it's ending.

    I work in Canton, MA not OH, and we all felt the floor roll and knew what it was.

    I'm near Raleigh, NC. On my second floor, I hear several pieces of equipment vibrating. I thought ti mgith have been a truck going past my house, but ti went a little too long and I didn't her any trucks.

    I asked my kids (downstairs) if they felt the house shaking, they said no.

    You definitely develop default "emergency instincts" depending on where you live. I'd be hopeless in a tornado, but I lived near San Francisco long enough that I still won't hang anything on the wall over a bed.

    Hope the ground stays calm for you from here on out!

    OT : what a beautiful city SF is - i was there 4 days and i liked it a lot

    but i was sometimes 'nervous' about an earthquake (also here in Italy many areas were in the past victims of it)

    Thanks 'Chick. Right now MD and VA authorities are checking out the nuclear reactors etc - - they say no problems at all so far.

    My first instinct was just to get the wife and kids out of the top floor - - I thought if I was feeling it so wobbly in my basement office, then the top floor was probably even wilder.

    Now all is back to normal and I'm working like it never happened. Will probably sleep with one eye open on aftershocks, though, tonight. The building codes on the east coast are not like the more earthquake-stringent codes on the west coast.

    Yeah, I'm talking to a couple friends in Charlottesville and they're saying the same thing; stuff fell off shelves, etc. All in all, interesting. Growing up in Virginia, I remember feeling a 4.3 once, but that was about it. 5.9 is weird.
