    You'll probably have some after-shocks. Be prepared for those.

    On the plus side, the aftershocks are generally smaller than the main event.

    So far, never felt an earthquake. Only tornadoes.

    Stay safe.

    Gosh, it was shallow. No wonder there was a bit of shaking.

    Re: We Just Had an Earthquake!

    At first, we just thought it was people walking on the roof. But then the windows started shaking a little.

    Just a touch of bizarre to highlight an otherwise non-eventful Tuesday afternoon. But I am sure glad this is not an ordinary occurrence in these parts.

    I've been in two large quakes here in California and they're scary as all get out. Even a 5.8. As time goes on the chances of a larger aftershock diminish. Hang on guys! Enjoy the midweek diversion.

    The Nisqually one? Maybe they thought it was "THE BIG ONE" - they always used to scare us as kids with that. I remember in 1st grade, they made us watch this weird documentary about how Seattle's going to get levelled by one of the biggest earthquakes on record (....sometime in the next 900 years). It was really unsettling.

    Wow. Apparently part of the roof collapsed at Union Station 1 block from Capitol Hill. Yowza.

    There's a nuke plant in VA that automatically shut down and is now on aux power.

    Re: We Just Had an Earthquake!

    Just curious so I checked, a bunch of tennis players tweeting about the earthquake from NYC. Was it actually something to be felt that far away?
