Exactly. Previous Virginia's earthquake of 5.8 magnitude happened in 1897 which was a recovery year for the panic started in 1893 (see Wiki: Panic of 1893: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_of_1893).
Probably a coincidence, but who knows.
How far is all this from Indian Point?
about 300 miles southwest, I think...
Try Calvert cliffs
Try North Anna Station. - Ned

no fkin shit...do people think that bc Indian Point is near the ALMIGHTY new york fucking city that it is the ONLY NPP on the east coast?
Lake Anna is known for good waterskiing precisely because of coolant flow from the NPPs there. It's like Indian Point is the only plant anywhere near anyone...because of WALL STREET OMFG
1. I don't give a fuck about NYC. I'd be just as happy to watch it burn.
2. I don't live there. It's not the center of the world for me. So I just asked, as I know it is for plenty of people here.
I just dug up some tidbits on North Anna from today.
Very strong movement felt 30 miles south of DC. I can only hope DC was swallowed by the swamp it is built on.
With out luck, it will create an impenetrable moat around the capital and foggy bottom.
I found a photo of the DC aftermath
I'm in bmore. Holy shit. Evac building now
If a massive earthquake caused the earth to open up in Manhattan, and swallow the Wall Street Bacterium whole, a scourge would be removed from the face of these United States.
Then, Las Vegas would remain, where people would be far better off, as they'd know their precise odds, and they wouldn't get shot in the head by the insiders and their Central Bankster jackals, as they left the casinos, in order to get their PIN numbers and steal their retirement accounts.
Good reason to "close" the NYSE and Nas....
I would expect New York to be hit badly by a quake at some point in the future, and that is probably the near future. Believe there's a fault line through there ...besides, everyone should stay away from coastal regions in general
Well, Irene is coming.
Maybe it will miss Florida, Georgia, N. & S. Carolina...Just saying...
the earth is angry my friends...
I don't think the earth gives a shit.
The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to return soup at a deli.
i think it was just barney frank farting
Must have forgotten to put in his butt plug.
We just felt it in Toronto Canada
Yep, really shook here in Baltimore.
So are these posts of yours like "aftershocks?"
Felt it here in Cleveland.
relax! janet napolitano had 5 burritos for lunch! am sure the crack has expanded!
There pouring out of bal city like rats from a sinking ship
Pissants freak over a 5.8. Get a life.
No shit. West coasters don't even get out of bed for something this insignificant.
Gotta have something to spice up their corporate-designed lives. 5.8 is as good as any 7.0+ as long as it provides a "short-lived" distraction. Like MSM: it's just diversions: sound bytes and trivial information for a society without any meaningful purpose. Exist for profits and die for profits in a safely designed ecosystem manned by our wise and great government and corporate watchmen; a safe simulation without any of the true hazards of actually living.
the geology is different here...quakes propagate significantly further and with less loss of energy over distance
Trav is right-on, I felt it in Chicago. It was very light, felt as though my chair was on jello for a few seconds.
No worries, just the Earth passing some shale gas.
We shock like a chandler
Shook like a chandelier? WTF?
Sorry my first experience at this. Spelling came in second.
welcome to fight club. Those Spelling Gestapo people are pussies. See ya around.
