I just came on here to see if anyone else felt it too.
Everything was shaking here in Graham. House, deck, lights.

Felt it here in Winston-Salem. I'm hearing the same from people as far away as Charleston, SC and New Jersey. Wow!

Felt it in downtown Winston. Supposedly, it registered 5.8 on the Richter Scale in Richmond, VA.

Felt a nice little shake. Pretty cool. I am sure we will have reports of falling houses and gaping cracks in the earth later.

I lived in San Diego for about 12 years...it was kind of "cool" to have an earthquake once in a while - as long as there was no serious damage or injuries.

Last one I felt was when we were in Portland, OR in 2000 or 2001 - epicenter was around Tacoma IIRC; that area doesn't get them too often either.
