Founders Rolling Over in their Graves Cause 5.9 Magnitude Quake in DC

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

From Fox11 WLUK-TV:
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was 3.7 miles deep. Shaking was felt at the White House and all over the East Coast, as far south as Chapel Hill, N.C. Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were evacuated. The quake was in Miner, Va., in Louisa County.
Another quake was felt in the DC area a little over a year ago on July 16, 2010. That one was 3.7 on the Richter scale.
Hoping everyone is okay.

Added: There's a "Did you feel it?" intensity map here. You can add to it if you like. (H/t: Eruptions)
