Default Virginia Rock 'n Roll quake?

So I heard there was a bit of an earthquake in Virginia today. I understand it wasn't all that bad, still....thinking of certain caudata members with racks upon rickety racks piled high with tanks...oh my.

Any damage? All newts accounted for?

No damage, and I missed it because I was napping. Call me a heavy sleeper

I felt it in NY at work, the building started shaking. First I thought, OK, that's enough caffeine and sugar for one day. Then I realized it wasn't me, and all I could do was imagine myself in the rubble with 1700 male inmates on the loose. Of course nothing much happened, but it was felt by many along the east coast. The picture in the newspaper today showed the epicenter, in Virginia, just over Justin's house. I think all his tanks exploded with eggs, causing the massive 5.8 quake.

Yeahh I was at my couch on the second floor in NY and was on the computer and all of the sudden I feel my couch shakeing.At first I ignore it.Then it gets slightly more vibrant and I start thinking that theres some structual damage with my house(my house is around 100 years old and have had many problems before)So I ask my sister to sit next to me and see if shes feeling it too.She think's it's me since I'am a bit of a jokester and I had my feet on the table(yes bad maners lol) so I take them off and it's still shaking.Then I hear my next door nieghbors screaming ''Its an earthquake!''That's when I was aware of the situation.
