MY TOWN OF " Bridgewater, Va " JUST HAD AN EARTHQUAKE! It was located 35 miles NW of Richmond, Va and was a Magnitude 5.8! IT'S EVEN ON BREAKNG NEWS ON THE " ABC CHANNEL " 5.9 NOW!

Have you ever felt an Earthquake before?! Because as far as i kow, Virginia as never really had an earthquake before. At least not in my lifetime. That felt so cool! :O

the epic center was Mineral, VA so I hope those involved are okay and only property damage is done and no causalities. they are checking buildings and once they are cleared they can return. thankfully there is no Tsunami warning in this quake due to the rocks on the east coast having absorbed a lot of the quake, thus how it was felt so far. monuments have been evacuated and closed and people forced from the buildings elsewhere but thus far people aren't as panicked.

I've been in several quakes and other natural disasters and I'm certain things are going to be just fine for the epic center of the shock and surrounding areas. they are already experiencing aftershocks now, so you might experience those as well.

BuBbLeS!

I think you should be a little bit more sensitive when treating a matter like natural disasters, specifically earthquakes. Like, not so long ago Japan was hit by an earthquake as I think you know and it wasn't precisely cool, lol.
I mean, NZ had a 6.3 earthquake and it was quite terrible ^^'

Either way, earthquakes here are uber common at the point you don't even get surprised about them.

No, I've never experienced an earthquake before, but I hope everyone over there in Virginia is alright; these past two years has made me realize how devastating earthquakes can be.

As for natural disasters, no earthquakes for me, but I'll be waving 'hello' to Hurricane Irene pretty soon.

I've never experienced an earthquake either, but my brother did while he was in Japan a while back. It wasn't that huge one recently, just a relatively harmless local one. Said it woke him up early in the morning to find his house shaking though. Anyways, I mostly have to deal with hurricanes where I live. Hope the damage to Virginia isn't too severe!

Hopefully Irene skips Florida(skim is fine) and goes for the Carolinas. >:)

And no, earthquakes are almost impossible for Florida to have considering we're pretty far from any fault line.

I guess I have an advantage over most people. At least I know I'm not getting a happy ending.Signature Image

Earthquakes are really common here (in CA), lol... so I've been through my fair share of them. (And of course I live like right next to the San Andreas Faultline...)

aaaaand... apparently there was just an earthquake 5 minutes ago. XD (According to USGS: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Quakes/nc71625065.php)

Seriously, I didn't feel it. Most likely I was outside when it happened.
But I did experience quite a few earthquakes when I was younger and
just 3 years back when I went back to visit my grandparents.

Unless it causes landslides and the deaths to a fraction of the world's population.. it's not worth being reported about.
That's just my 2 cents on it though.
On topic: I've felt an earthquake but was never really affected by it before everything in my house is superglued.

I didn't even feel anything I was visiting friends in North Carolina its nothing compared to most of the ones we get in California. It was more like a fat kid doing the truffle shuffle on a table..

I was down in Virginia when the earthquake hit.
I didn't feel a thing, though I wish I did, as then I'd actually know what the people around me were talking about
