I just experienced my first earthquake. At first I thought it was just construction going on in the building I work in, but those around me informed me that it was indeed an earthquake. I’ve got to say it has left me a little shaken up (no pun intended). I didn’t think earthquakes happened in Virginia, or at least not big ones that could be felt. This one was a 5.9 and seemed to last for around 30 seconds.
Hopefully everyone is ok and there wasn’t much damage done. Keeping my fingers crossed that there won’t be any more earthquakes here!
