8-23-11 East Coast Earthquake Updated

It appears as though the worst is over. I’ve heard back from family who live in Louisa, Va and from an Uncle who works at Dominion Power’s Lake Anna Nuke Power Plant. They say everything is OK. Doesn’t look like there is any threat of any nuclear spill or anything like that. There was a second rumble that came through around 4:15pm EST, but they confirmed they still have power, and water, etc.

You can watch the local news, Richmond’s WTVR for more updates. They’ve been covering fallen buildings and other events from the earthquake and appear to be doing a phenomenal job covering the earthquake and it’s after affects. It also, looks like school has been canceled for that area for tomorrow.

Latest update is that Dominion Power’s Lake Anna Nuke Power plant, just a few miles from the earthquake epicenter in Mineral, VA has been taken offline. Link here. Hopefully, this is standard procedure in order for them to ensure the plant is safe and in operable condition.

I’ll keep updating as I hear from friends and family up north. Also, if you hear of anything, please pass along in the comments section.
