I was sitting at a table reading emails and all of a sudden my chair started shaking and rolling slighting. Then I noticed the table moving and everything swaying.

Not a whole lot, but enough to make me wonder if it was me, or the table. Then my husband said he was sitting in his chair in another room and experience the same thing.

We aren't even in an earthquake area are we? We're in the Eastern Pines area, btw.

There was an earthquake about halfway between Charlottesville and Richmond, VA. Good sized one, 5.8 on Richter scale.

Turns out there is a very seismically active area in that location.

PCMH swayed just a bit. Everyone came of their offices and was like "Wha???" One of my co-workers from Taiwan (which apparently gets a lot of earthquakes) said "Yeah, its an earthquake" totally nonplussed and continued reading.

Felt the quake here in coastal NC--it's been reported shaking as far north as Vermont--that's a big area, must be a sizable fault...

I didn't feel anything in Wilmington, but others did, so I feel like I may have a balance issue ?
