      I felt it in Powhatan Va. it felt like a wave rolled under me and there was a loud boom like thunder.

    3. Tito Stevens says:

      It would really be instructive if you could post a daily map of the world showing the places where earthquakes 5.0 on the Richter Scale and above were located and the time they were felt so we could see if there is some kind of trend developing in the tectonic plates.
