It's been updated, and now reads a depth of 6km. And the magnitude has been downgraded back to a 5.8.

Were starting to get some images of the devastation in and around the areas hardest hit. Pretty scary.

Bravo Marlin! Genuine laugh out loud moment.

Clearly that image is photoshopped or there would be sweet tea on that table.

Lol. Just messing around. It seems like damage was fairly minimal and I haven't heard of anyone being seriously injured.

According to Michael's link the depth was 6km at the epicenter. I read a report that said 1km. So, I don't know if these are measurements at different places/times or misreporting.


Yes, the data have been updated on the USGS site.

I was led to believe the image was supposed to be from Virginia.

I was about 25 miles from where it started. I was working on the 6 floor of a hospital, and the floor felt walking on a trampoline... very eerie..

North Anna.

That's the plant where Dominion Virginia Power is planning to add another reactor; I'm working in risk management on the construction project. We're in Charlotte, NC and felt the quake.

S2000 could you tell us what exactly does risk management do?
And do you know if this story is accurate?

And you probably felt five more before I got around to posting this.

Back when I was a kid in Taiwan, we felt earthquakes a few times a year. We thought it was fun. I remember one time when both me and my sister suddenly fell off of our bikes for no clear reason. Later we found out it was an earthquake. Hilarity ensued.

Living in Los Angeles helps a lot. You get used to occasional shakes. Most times you don't realize it is an earthquake, you think it is the dog scratching himself at the foot of the bed or something...

A lot of it is time.

Most earthquakes here don't bother me.

The Northridge thing years ago lasted a minute and a half.

Stuff was flying everywhere. You couldn't stand up to save your life. I tried to get upstairs to my daughter...

A minute and a half!

That is time to get really scared and think a million scary thoughts.

The big one in Seward, Alaska in 1963 lasted nearly four minutes. I would be a pile of formless jello by then...just sayin'...

First, bear in mind that I'm working on the construction of the power plant, not the operation of the power plant.

What I do is help the project managers, engineers, purchasers, designers, and so on determine what sorts of things might go differently than they have planned, analyze the effects of those going-differently things, and help the managers, et al develop plans for how they might handle those things.

For example, when they excavate the site for the new reactor, turbines, etc. they may find that there is more rock than they had estimated, or there may be cracks in the rock that will need to be filled with "dental concrete" (no, I don't know exactly how that differs from ordinary concrete), or the NRC inspector may require that they embed steel dowels into the bedrock to ensure that the concrete foundation doesn't slip. I help the engineers estimate the likelihood of any of these events happening, estimate the impact to the project (cost and schedule) should any of them happen, and develop plans to respond to them should they happen. So, they might decide to purchase the steel dowels early so that if they need them there won't be a schedule delay while they wait for delivery; the downside is that they might spend the money and later find that they don't need the dowel. Or they may hire ten additional dump trucks in case there is more rock to be excavated than they'd estimated; the downside is that if there isn't more rock than estimated, they've paid for ten extra trucks that they didn't need.
