5.9 Eathquake Hits Northern VA – Say WHAT?

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake just hit Northern Virginia. There are reports coming out of NYC, DC, Philly, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston, Canada from folks experiencing the shaking. Reportedly the Pentagon evacuated.

I live in Brookline, MA and felt nothing. Apparently, I’m oblivious, because I’m seeing reports from people in Braintree and Government center who felt it.

Did you feel it?

I’ll update this post with any new information.

The Idols are in New York, getting ready for a show. Of course they felt it!

Scotty McCreery tweeted, “just experienced my first earthquake in new york. I’ve lived in Cali for the last 4-5 months.. I woulda thought it would’ve happened there.”

Naima Adedapo tweeted, “Sooooooo! I was just in my first earthquake, and it was in NEW YORK!”

James Durbin tweeted, “I was on the 12th floor in the heart of times square..scariest moment of my life..I love you Heidi and Hunter with all my heart! I miss you!”

Felt in:

Washington DC
