I’m in Houston, so this came as a huge surprise when a coworker said there was an earthquake. Long distance lines were jammed, but through sms I was able to find out friends and family were OK. (Story here.)
Areas I’ve heard reports from:
Arlington, Va - Not Felt Shepherdstown, WVA - Not Felt Arbutus, MD - Felt, building evacuated Annapolis, MD - Felt, buildings evacuated Rockville, MD - Felt, buildings evacuated Baltimore, MD - Felt Frederick, MD - Felt Washington, DC - Felt, buildings evacuated New York, NY - - Felt, buildings evacuated (many for the rest of the day)
I’ll update as I get more information, and please keep me posted in the comments sections.
