I'm in upstate N.Y. And we didn't feel anything.
It seems that so far there's only structural damages and only around 30 miles from the center of the quake. I hope everyone is safe. 5.9 is strong enough to bring down buildings.

The National Cathedral reportedly has damage to 3 of the 4 spires of the main tower which itself appears to have shifted, according to early reports. DC commuter traffic is reported in chaos. The local TV stations haven't shown such wall-to-wall coverage since the last major snowfall of the past winter. Hurricane Irene is up next ... film at 11.

For a moment there I thought the earth finally opened and swallow the phillies.

Everything's good here.
Great to hear, at first you have no clue what's going on. I understood why we felt it all the way here, I actually thought that the earthquake happened here, once I heard it happened that far away I feared the worse. I learned a lot about earthquakes today.
we had one near carini Sicily a long time ago, I was too young to remember, but we do get earthquakes in Italy, the last one at aquila was really bad.
