Did you feel the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Virginia, US at 1:51pm today?

According to preliminary reports, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in Virginia at 1:51pm. The earthquake was felt as far away as New York, New England as well as North Carolina. (Source: HuffPost - For all of the updates including video, check out the article on the HuffPost)

Personally I live in Central Massachusetts and even though the earthquake could be felt all the way up here, I didn’t fell it at all. But I did get several updates all over the east coast within the few hours especially on Facebook and Twitter.

Those updates including the impact it had, if any in the NASCAR community. The quake could be felt as far south as North Carolina around several teams raceshops. But thankfully there wasn’t much for damage. Richmond International Raceway reported that they have no damage.
