    Typically a few minutes after the initial quake. You could have smaller ones for a few weeks.

    5.9 is a good sized quake, especially for a population that hasn't experienced one before.

    Can anybody near Richmond, VA report on this? I'm guessing power is probably down.

    My sister and her two sons are in Lynchburg, VA. Hope they're alright.

    I'm on the 11th floor of a steel frame building on University Place, NYC. We had a pretty good wobble going to 60 seconds or so. Freaky.

    If you live in a brick house give it a look over, especially the chimney.


    I believe there's an active fault line that runs right through the city. If that one ever moves, oy.

    Felt it in NC. Talked to family in Charleston, SC & Athens, GA and they felt it as well. Crazy.
