Wow so what just occurred a couple of minutes ago? I was sitting in the recliner and the whole house rocked. The neighbors came out of their house asking what was going on. So what is it earthquake or what?
UPDATE: So it was a 5.9 earthquake in Virginia. My daughter in Edinboro (Western Pennsylvania) felt it out there and called us. The other daughter in Germantown Maryland certainly felt it and gave us a call that she was okay.
Our cats were on the back porch and after the shake we opened the door and it was like a stampede for them trying to get back into the house.
