Earthquake in Virginia Felt From New York to North Carolina

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered northwest of Richmond, Va. and shook as far north as Rhode Island and New York City to as far south as Chapel Hill, NC.  The quake was in Mineral, Va., in Louisa County.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was 3.7 miles deep.  DC felt the effects as well.  Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were evacuated.

Many phone lines are down.  Citizens are describing the quake as “scary and intense.”
