Suspect an Earthquake?

In light of the recent east coast earthquake (early report is a 5.9 magnitude centring in Virginia), I’d like to present a useful site for confirming your crazy suspicions.

This may be boring to you west coast people who are wondering why we make a big deal about any tiny movement of the earth, but it’s fascinating to us on the east side of the continent.

The United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program tracks Earthquakes in real time!  Instead of spending 12 seconds waiting for Twitter followers to verify your vertigo, go directly to the Latest Earthquake information for instant gratification.

The site includes comprehensive information on real-time and historical earthquakes if you are into that kind of thing. Sometimes you have to filter through the noise to get to valuable information on the web.
