An earthquake just hit. It was a 5.8 magnitude in central Virginia. Is everyone and everything okay?
I suddenly felt rumbling and looked out the window; just then, a big truck was going by. But then the truck passed, and the rumbling got stronger. I ran to a door as it intensified; there were a few cracking noises, and for a moment I was a bit worried. I hope all people and buildings are fine.
Update: According to Twitter reports, Metro is running at 15 mph and crews are inspecting the tracks and tunnels. Some ceiling may have fallen at Dunn Loring. The National Cathedral reports 3 “pinnacles on the central tower” fell off. Local transportation departments are out inspecting their bridges and tunnels.
