5.8 Earthquake in Southern Maryland!

Maryland Earthquake
Evacuated Building in Waldorf, MD

Yes, you read that right. I’ve lived in Maryland for decades, but I’ve never felt an earthquake out here! It was minor, as far as earthquakes go, and I’m sure Californians are snickering at the shock and reaction of us east coast-types, but WOW!

Apparently it was felt as far north as New York (and possibly further), so it was a pretty big quake, possibly as strong as 5.9 locally. Twitter and Facebook are blowing up about it right now, and I’m sure we will hear about damage reports shortly. I hope everyone is okay!

Did you experience the Earthquake, tell us what you felt and saw!
