    I work in southern PA, 30 minutes away from the MD border and I felt it as well. I originally thought there was drilling and blasting going on, which isn't at all uncommon.

    I'm in Virginia about forty miles away from the epicenter. About forty second of OMG rattling...and a few figures falling from displays.

    Well that was a fun little rumble! Everyone seems shaken (haha) but nobody hurt that I know of. Just a few figures scattered about!

    Maybe we'll get lucky and the Earth will swallow DC completely.

    I didn't feel anything, but I happened to slam my front door and heard a figure fall...when I came back in like five minutes later a ton of them had fallen down, in different parts of my apartment. I thought that was odd.

    I hear ya, but the problem with Earthquakes in Southeastern Va is the type of substrate we have it could turn into quicksand and can swallow entire cities worst case.

    I felt it here in coastal NJ. Kinda neat in retrospect, now that the freakiness has passed. The good thing is it doesn't sound like there was any damage or injury.
