Virginia Earthquake

In case you haven’t heard a 5.9 earthquake hit Virginia just outside of Richmond. I felt it in Durham, NC and Kevin felt it out on the coast.  Reports from Twitter indicate it was also felt up in Boston.  If you felt it, you can log into the USGS website and report your local conditions.  A great use of citizen scientists to collect data that will be of great utility to the USGS.  The above map displays 612 responses so far that begin to indicate how the earthquake dissipated.

  1. Seems to have knocked reports of last night’s So. Colorado shake out of the news..

    It was pretty scary here in DC. Those of us who have visited Mineral VA (epicenter) were glad to learn that the nearby nuclear power plamt on Lake Anna switched to back-up generators without any reported hiches.
