Don't know how far it reached, but we just felt a small earthquake. Never experienced that before.

INSANE!
I'm at work and I thought I was getting dizzy or something. I was shaking my head trying to shake it off.
Then other people started saying it around me. Then noises started happening and it got pretty freaky.
Everyone cleared the building.

The radio show I listen to said New York and Virginia felt it too.

Quote:
An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.8 struck near Washington, D.C., the U.S.Geological Survey said.

The epicenter was in Virginia. The U.S.G.S is saying that

The quake was felt in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New York, and on Martha's Vineyard where President Barack Obama is vacationing. Cell phone service has been disrupted in New York City where parts of Manhattan have been evacuated.

"Everybody was told to take the stairs," Wolf Blitzer said, speaking live at 2 p.m. E.T. from CNN's D.C. bureau.

The Pentagon has been evacuated, CNN's Barbara Starr reports. "When the building began shaking rather violently, hundreds of people began streaming out," she said, because many people thought that the building was under attack. Starr was standing in the Pentagon's press office when the roof started to shake.

I thought someone was shaking my chair on purpose. I turned around to see and no one was there. Then I felt everything moving and I thought "Who is shaking this cube?" and I took my headphones off and thats when I heard everything shaking and then people started saying "Are we having an earthquake?!"

Pretty nuts!

hahaha I was in my car in the parking lot about to go to lunch. It started shaking and I had no clue what was going on, I just thought the wind picked up. I didn't think anything of it and just drove to WAWA where everyone was freaking the fuck out..... I just wanted my sandwich.

hahaha! Man, that is nuts. I'm not looking forward to "the big one" that SF is supposed to be getting every 500 years or something. It's supposed to be BIG. What do you think Powerdusk? ... oh wait.

I've been around for many earthquakes and I don't think I've ever felt it. I'm always asleep when they happen.

That is exactly how it went here as well. I was actually on the phone with the helpdesk when it happened and let them know that I had to go because of the earthquake... Our buildings all evacuated for about 30 minutes or so. The building definitely made some strange noises during the quake, so I am not sure if there is any real damage or not. I am sure someone will investigate it at some point....
