Magnitude 5.8 – VIRGINIA.

That is right the east coast just had an earthquake. I was sitting in my home office located in Saxapahaw NC (near Chapel Hill) when my room started to shake, my desk was shaking and my heart was pounding.

It felt as if there was an unbalanced washing machine running, but I knew I hadn’t started any laundry before heading into my office.

I immediately went to the USGS site and looked up earthquakes. I get reminders because of my family in California, I have it set though to higher magnitudes and wasn’t sure if this one complied. I just heard it was upgraded to a 6.0. There it was listed.
