    Felt it here in Newport News. Had some weird shaking for about 45 seconds. No damage.
    News states it was a 5.9. Very odd indeed!

    Thanks for thinking of us

    The news states people felt it here in Dayton Ohio, but we are in a WWII Military building, so I didn't feel anything personally

    Floor rumbled (felt like a couple small waves at the ocean), drop ceiling tiles made a creaking sound that is all in Roanoke, VA. Biggest issue we had was cell phones didn't work (too many people calling)! The wife sad the china cabinet rattled (darn didn't break any of those things ) Thanks for thing of us is right!

    Felt it here in Central Ohio. Just felt like the floor was bouncing a bit in my apartment. Lasted maybe 10-15 seconds.
