Did you feel that!!

We just had an Earthquack here in Virginia.

It was said to be a  5.8 ~ shook the house something terrible but all is well. 
Pictures fallen, dishes rattled, floor rumbled~ very scary for about 5 - 10 seconds.

I have not experienced an earthquack since I was 9 yrs old living in Maryland.

Still a bit scared from this, but am okay.


  1. I'm glad you are ok Jean!
    I just heard about it on the news. I don't usually have TV on during the day but have it on the Weather Channel keeping tabs on hurricane status for the east coast. Praying it misses everyone~

  2. Felt it here too along the Ohio river. I thought it was my air conditioning unit or jets flying over shaking the house. We all are sitting on an earthquake fault line. The quake here was not quite as bad as what you got. I'll have to watch the news to see what we got here.
    Stay safe and keep your eyes peeled.
    Country at heart

  3. Wow. There was one in CO too, around midnight I think. It is rare to have any that are newsworthy.


  4. Glad to hear your okay Jean, I read on facebook folks all over the place felt it, here in nw PA I didn't feel it.

  5. Hi Jean, so glad you are alright. I didn't feel it here, I had gone to Harrisonburg, but all my pictures are on the wall so maybe it wasn't felt here. Wow that is scary. Take care, Hugs,

  6. holy cow!!!...I am in Mechanicsville and it shook the house pretty good for about 20 - 25 seconds!...I was scared to death!!...and I was born and raised in So. Cal. where I experienced tons of earthquakes!...we moved here 10 years ago!...all of our furniture was bolted to the walls in CA but nothing is bolted down here and I was afraid everything was going to fall!...nothing big did thank heavens!


  7. Hi Jean,

    Glad all is well! Didn't feel it here but people in neighboring counties did...


  8. Hi Jean

    So glad to hear you are ok... been praying
    since we first heard about this, I was in
    a quake back in 1994 in NV.. so I know the
    feeling.. glad to see Lecia post too...:-)


  9. Glad you're okay Jean. We felt it here in NY. Things jiggled a bit but nothing like you experienced.

  10. Glad your ok sweetie!We didnt feel anything here at all.Crazy days!big hugs michelle

  11. Wow...glad to hear you're ok - quakes are something foreign here in Nod - although we did have one that folks felt back about 20 years ago - such a strange sensation....Hope you stay safe Jean....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  12. Hiya Jean - I didn't feel it at our new house, but our son felt it just an hour away....he said the house was just trembling and things on his desk were moving quite a lot...and we are in Central NY....so it was felt quite far.
    Glad you are ok!

  13. Hi Jean, Glad your ok. I didn't feel anything here in W. PA, but my daughter, 5 min from me, said her office and things were shaking for awhile. Other places 15 mins away, said they felt the shaking too. Toooo bizzare!!!!


  14. Hi Jean,
    So glad you are ok!! We felt it here in Ohio too, but not as strong. My daughter & I were out driving in the car...so we didn't feel a thing, but we heard that some of the buildings around here did some shaking. I did notice that a few of my pictures and a birdhouse on the wall were crooked. I lived here for 18 years and this is the 3th earthquake that we have felt. Kind of scary!!
