    I'm east of Farmville Va and I felt it. I've got some straightening up to do around here.

    My husband works in a hospital in Richmond and he said that he felt it strongly there too.

    Weird.

    I just saw on an NBC special report that both the white house and the pentagon are being evacuated right now due to it, they said 5.4 on the richter scale

    I think we had it in New Jersey as well.

    Here's the USGS:

    Husband and I sitting at our desk and felt it, first we thought sonic boom then I knew what it was, it lasted a good 50 seconds. The entire house shook. Very rare an earthquake is felt here.

    Wonder if more to come for I'm no earthquake person.

    I'm close to you, I felt it sitting in my chair, and a cabinet was swaying. At first I thought my apartment building was falling down, but I've been in quakes before and knew what happened.
