This is a discussion on 5.9 quake hit US East Coast within the OT Archives forums, part of the Archived Threads category; I just heard this on CNN few hrs ago.. http://www.balitangamerica.tv/powerf...its-dc-region/ Hope everyone in that area is safe.....
Thank you. ok naman kami dito sa maryland. Medyo mahaba yun quake. Nagstart ng mahina, then lumakas na.
my sister had to wait and walk around for four hours from DC to rosslyn because all the subways were shut down. all ok now, though.

Had a good walk myself to Rosslyn earlier too. Total gridlock in downtown DC. A bit wary about the buildings including the apartment I'm staying at also. I'm not sure if any of them are built to withstand earthquakes.

My wife and I were at the OB clinic waiting for her turn. She thought I was pounding on the iPad while playing Tiger Woods golf, she elbowed me to stop shaking her chair, then we realized, earthquake na pala.
I got a lot of stories here in New York that people really did panic a bit downtown, especially those in the high rise building. Majority of the people here have never experienced an earthquake, so there was genuine fear in the beginning. In the end, when everyone realized it was a minor one, those who didn't feel it, just felt left out.

I'd advise Californians to stop laughing and take this as a warning.
They should be running earthquake drills in schools, malls and office buildings.
Given that the state is basically bankrupt, I'm not sure how efficiently emergency services will be able to respond.
Earthquakes now occurring in usually earthquake-free/rare zones? The last sentence about bankrupt state and no emergency services may apply to our country as well. Maybe we should be exercising drills ourselves.
