I live near toronto, didn't feel it.
Didn't feel shit, Blacksburg, VA. Most of my mechanics class didn't feel anything. Our professor did though. Probably happened while we were all standing out in the hallway.
I live in Northern Virginia so we got it pretty bad here.
Where I live there was barely any damage though a friend who lives near me says that his street was damaged by it. He even said poles moved two feet to the left.
At first I though it was my washing machine being unbalanced.
As it got stronger, I realized that my washing machine can't shake my entire fucking house.

Hah, the people on my local news are at the national cathedral, and they just interviewed a kid named Sam Fischer
In Northern VA we respond to earthquakes by getting in our cars and parking in the middle of the street.
I just got back from 7-11. Took over an hour to go less than a mile.
It'd be great if people GOT OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WHEN THEY HAVE AN ACCIDENT.
Sup virginians we should hang out sometime
Just kidding stay away from me nerd
Yeah, I'm in Birmingham, AL and I didn't feel shit. I've been playing Deus Ex for 12 hours straight but I'm sure I'd have noticed something.
Damn dude. I live in Vegas, I don't think there'd be an earthquake here that big, but in LA yes. And we'd feel it.
If people hate North Jersey but like South Jersey why don't they just dig out a giant cavern underneath North Jersey, move out the people there and then let it collaspe with all the Guidos in it when the Guidos least suspect it.
No flaws with plan at all.
Yeah, I live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Everything shook the fuck up, I was woken up and my pets ran around flipping shit. Was pretty awesome.
Baltimore, felt it.
Dog pretty much shit himself.
dad felt it and said it was pretty strong, yet no one at my school felt it
Everyone that lives near me says they felt it, but I didn't notice it.
Rockville MD here. Was pretty creepy, I live in an apartment so I thought it was just my 400 pound upstairs neighbor walking around/opening their loud as fuck window, but I realized what it was after it got louder. My neighbor's parrot also started yelling really loudly, it was kinda funny.
Also, one of my plates broke in half, cleanly. Not from falling, it was in a pile of plates in a cabinet and just snapped in half. Still trying to find out how it happened, it was the only plate that broke.
Felt it during school in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Wasn't very strong though.
I live just few miles from the epicenter of it.
I felt it alright....Entire house was shaking and all of our dogs started squealing in terror.
Not fun I wouldn't recommend it.
It shut off my electricity except for my computer, then everything went back on.
I live in Pittsburgh.
Not to mention struggling to get outside with nothing but underwear only which is shit stained.
never felt the earthquake but remind me of the earthquake that was a 4.8 here in kentucky during 2008.
Time to get the limo ready so we can escape in a plane to go to Yellowstone to get a map for them arks.
If you were planning on going to your school this evening for football practice, marching band, or whatever, I suggest checking your county's website to see if your event has been canceled.
Most of Virginia's evening activities have been shut down.
Reminds me of the earthquake in Roermond, Netherlands.
5.8 too. One of the heaviest west Europe ever encountered, as far as we know.
Doesn't surprise me that so many people felt the earthquake.
They felt the one in Roermond all the way in Great Britain and in the Czech Republic.
