Just experienced my first earthquake, approximately 1:51pm. What an experience. I am at work and the walls start shacking, not unusual as military helicopters will fly over and shake the windows, but this didn’t stop. Eventually the glass windows start shaking real bad like they will break so me and everyone in the building runs outside. Standing there I could feel the ground move beneath my feet.
I know it sounds weird but I always wanted to be in an earthquake, it boggled my mind how the ground could shake so much. Well now I know. Everyone here at work is fine and nothing is broken. Spoke to Nancy and she is good and her building is still standing. It will be interesting to inspect my house later this evening for any damage, hopefully none.
According to news reports it was a 5.8 magnitude quake centered in Mineral, VA.
