    I was heading back from my first day of college and everybody that's getting on the Bus starts freaking out that thee was an Earthquake.

    I didn't feel it on the bus

    I get home and found that it hit also Lynchburg not just the DC area and her surrounding sisters.

    it was 5.9 in Lynchburg not sure about Fort belvoir/Alexandria

    Two Earthquakes in Colorado yesterday with dozens of aftershocks. BUT NO MENTION ON THE NATIONAL NEWS BECAUSE OH EM GEE IT'S NOT IN THE EAST COAST WHERE ANYTHING THAT'S IMPORTANT ONLY HAPPENS THERE.

    I didn't even feel it. But apparently, my archangel figure did as I found him face planted. Ah well.

    I was born in Lynchburg as well. My parents still live there...I checked in and everything is fine with them; they felt it a bit at their respective workplaces but nothing major happened.

    Nope, didn't notice it in the Black Forest either. Wouldn't have ever known there was a quake till I heard it on the radio later today.

    If only you felt them it's possible it was trully newsworthy but then again anything Kardashian isn't newsworthy.

    For those who felt the earthquake this week, please check your house for damage! Check cracks, water-pipes, gas-leaks from stove, fireplace, etc'. Just a thought for you'll, hope every one is okay!

    Where I live we don't get earthquakes, but every once in awhile we will get a sonic boom since Eglin AFB is 35 miles east of here.
