Earthquake Felt in Long Beach! (5.8 centered in VA)

A 5.8-5.9 earthquake hit outside of Washington, D.C. at 1:51 PM.  Shocks were felt here in Long Beach.

Here’s your fourm to comment on the earthquake that was felt all the way up in Long Beach.  Cell service is spotty across the East Coast because everyone is freaking out for no reason.  There are no reports of damage anywhere.

As one reader put it – with all the construction going on, they just figured a truck drove by.
