Map showing earthquakes

At 1:51 EST a Magnitude 5.9 rocked the mid-atlantic area.  Shockwaves were felt in DC, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and New York.  The epicenter was located about 4 miles SSE of Louisa Virginia.

Wall Street Journal Reported that the Capitol and Pentagon were evacuated.

Did you feel it?  Report any damage.  Thanks.
