We don't get earthquakes in the D.C. area . . . at least not very often.
It measured 3.6 and the epicenter was thought to be at the largest intersection near my house. We had dinner at a restaurant on that corner just last Saturday night.
It sounded and felt like a big rumble of thunder, but not from the sky. Then the house began shuttering and then a deep, loud boom, and the house seemed to lower and settle back down.
We felt an aftershock 11 minutes later, but no one seems to be reporting on that.
