How bad was it near you? I felt it when I was on my smoke break but I though it was just me until I went back in the shop

Hit me in Richmond. Not that bad but bad enough to frighten folks.

Hit in Baltimore. A few things fell off some shelves but no major damage. Phones were out for a while though.

Felt it here in PA as well..Apparently it was felt at least as far north as New York. I've been hearing preliminary magnitude measurements of about 5.8.

I was driving so I didn't feel a thing. I was on my way to the fish wholesaler though and they said their roof was swaying and a lot of stuff fell off their shelves. Stuff fell over and broke at home too.
