5.9 Magnitude Earthquake Hits…the East Coast?!

The New York Times just sent a news update to my inbox with the following headline: Earthquake Strikes East Coast; Epicenter Near Richmond, Va., U.S. Geological Survey Says. Weird, right?

Scary is more like it, I’m sure. I hope everyone is safe and sound; I’m sure it was pretty weird to experience and the first of such for millions of people never subjected to the occasional tremor like we are out here in the Bay Area.

That said, I’ve still only felt one minor jolt in my life and it was definitely enough to scare me. The force of an entire building moving with you is not something you ever want to experience or remember.
