So I guess even the relatively stable United States east coast has its share of significant earthquakes. The 5.9 magnitude earthquake shook both Washington, DC and NYC right around 2pm eastern standard time. I was taking a casual walk around the lake near my house and didn't feel anything, despite being only 20 miles from the nation's capital. Though I got home to frightened cats, nothing seemed out of ordinary and there are certainly plenty of things that would have fallen off of tables if the house had been affected. To my fellow east coast WF's, are you all alright?
