This is the type we should have. Basically some things fell off the shelves but damage was minimal. Thankfully I have not heard of any fatalities. The nuclear plant was spared. Here in New York I was at my desk and my chair was bucking like I was on a horse and my monitor was swaying. My one concern was those overhead ceiling tiles falling on my head. Overall a day to talk about but a non-event.

A fairly minor Earthquake, all things considered, which could have been a lot worse. While it wasn't noticeable up where I live, some of my family members in Pennsylvania could feel it. Personally, I'm more worried about the Hurricane which is hitting us this weekend.

A blessing in disguise, I'd say. Luckily for everyone, no permanent damage as of now. Definitely a sign that Washington is shaky... what an irony! In any case, it's a reminder not to take life for granted and that no earthquake can hit your area. Anything can happen!
