Minor Earthquake Shakes DC

An earthquake, centered in Rockville, MD, shook the Washington DC Metro Area this morning around 5:00 am.  The quake measured 3.6 on the Richter scale and was the strongest to ever hit the area since record keeping began in 1974.

While the quake didn’t cause any major damage, local police and the US Geological Survey’s website we swamped with inquiries.  Many residents were startled by the seismic activity which is very rare in this area.
