If you’re on the East Coast of the United States, then you more than likely felt the earthquake that just hit:
I was in my basement (my batcave) when the house started shaking. I booked it up the stairs and stood in the door frame until it stopped. I’m staying upstairs near the front door until I’m sure there will be no aftershocks.
Stats are as follows:
– 5.8 – 6.0 magnitude earthquake with an epicenter in Mineral, VA (which is NW of Richmond, VA)
– Felt all up and down the East Coast as far North as Ontario and far South as South Carolina.
– Phone lines are down/jammed so I cannot get in touch with family and friends except through internet.
No, not good to be in a basement on an earthquake 🙂
