Earthquake in DC, felt across east coast

Record earthquake has hit Virginia. Shaking was felt all the way up the east coast.

5.9 Magnitude reported in Mineral, VA. Some debris has fallen off the National Cathedral in DC. Aftershocks are expected in the next few hours, but they aren’t expected to be as big as the original 5.9 earthquake. They can also possibly last for a few weeks. Below are some links to news stories on the quake:
