Virginia just had a 5.9 magnitude earthquake which could be felt as far as New York City and North Carolina.

In other earthquake news, Colorado had a 5.3 magnitude earthquake this morning. This is Colorado's strongest earthquake in 40 years.

Reports I read said the quake was relatively close to the surface and that the plate involved is very old dense rock which transmits EQ motions very effectively and thus a wide area of locations on the plate were able to feel the event.

By contrast, the plates in the West are relatively new and 'soft' and tend to attenuate any EQ motions and keep them in a narrow area around the point of occurence.

In best Ed McMahon voice..."You are correct ...Oh magnificent one"..huh huh huh

We just had a 4.8 mag earthquake on Friday night near Hollister, CA ( a very active area at the split of the San Andreas Fault and the Calaveras fault). I felt a jolt and then a long (10 second) rolling motion and knew it was on the San Andreas Faultzone East of my area. But after going through the 1989 'Loma Prieta' (6 miles away!) earthquake...you always wonder how much shaking will occur once it starts.....

Didn't feel the earthquake although many in my state did (North Carolina) but on
Sept. 2 a tornado cut a swath up the highway right in front of where I work,
snapping utility poles (12), uprooting and snapping trees, and creating general
havoc on both sides of the road. Luckily, no one was hurt although the time
it came through (7 pm) normally sees a lot of traffic on that road.

I missed everything! dry.gif I was at home holding my shivering puppy who jumps
on me at the first sight or sound of thunder and lightning. I heard a lot of sirens
go down the highway around that time but there's usually an accident or
two up there during heavy rains. It wasn't until the next morning as I was
driving into work that I saw what looked like a surreal accident scene that
must have involved about 20 cars and all the utility poles on one side of the
road, not to mention much of the fence line and many of the trees. I just
never knew how a tornado could jump from one side of the road to another....
taking out a line of utility poles on one side and leaving the Security gatehouse
just right across the street (with the officer inside!) untouched.

We had the EQ early in the week and it was followed up by Hurricane Irene for the weekend. What a 1-2 punch for a nothing, nothing week in August.
