A 5.8-5.9 earthquake hit 36 miles away from DC, destroying several buildings in the area. Shocks were felt as far away as New York and Southern Connecticut. This is the biggest earthquake to hit the Eastern Seaboard since 1897.

Anyone hear get hit by this. I got some small shakes and my dogs went a little crazy, anyone closer to the epicenter?

Winning quote:
The quake disrupted a news conference on the Dominic Strauss-Kahn affair given by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

"To deprive a defendant of his liberty, guilt has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt," Mr Vance said.

"For generations, this standard has protected... What's happening?... The whole building's shaking... Okay, okay, I've been through earthquakes in Seattle... Slowly, slowly, don't rush."

Out here on the West Coast a 5-6 isn't really that much nowadays. We get small 2 or 3 magnitude Earthquakes every day and don't even notice them. Every few months we get a 4 or a 5. We feel it, but no one is really concerned.

East Coast doesn't feel it often so the buildings aren't really as built to handle them as much as West Coast.

I know, that's why I didn't call them pansies. Not directly, at least.

My chair started shaking but it was nothing that I would have noticed if I was moving, or sitting in a sturdier chair.
