Earthquake One Year On: Where Were You?

It's been exactly one year since a powerful earthquake shook the Eastern Seaboard. Where were you when it happened?

Earthquake One Year On: Where Were You?

It was a relatively powerful 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in Virginia. It struck at 1:50 p.m. one year ago on August 23.

Some people in Tredyffrin and Easttown felt it.  Others did not.

The shaking was enough to damage the Washington Monument, which remains closed for repairs.

Some local commuters told TE Patch they fled from Center Philadelphia high-rise offices as the streets below were teeming with people.

Where were you when the earthquake hit?  Tell us your earthquake story in the comments section at the bottom of this article.
