A huge earthquake hit my former state of Virginia today. I actually first got the news from a writer of ours on CleanTechnica. he lives in Queens, New York and felt it there. Sent me a follow-up email telling me it was in Virginia. I though, “Oh My! That’s a big one.” Followed very quickly by, “Oh My! I hope everyone I know in Virginia is OK.”
The USGS is currently reporting that this earthquake was a magnitude 5.8. You can see in the map here that it was not far from Virginia.
