My building in Central NJ shuddered, but I just thought it was construction workers renovating the office next door. My office just received a few calls from nervous residents. My Mom's chandelier was swinging back & forth.

Made the buildings dance and knocked stuff off of shelves just outside of DC. No visible damage, but from the noise I wonder about the support beams in some of these buildings.

They've evacuated all of the tall buildings 'round here. Quite a mess on the streets.

The wife reports she felt it in Nantucket, MA. I didn't feel a thing in Charleston SC.

The East Coast has a lot more older buildings than what we have on the West Coast. Hope there isn't too much damage. A 5.9 magnitude quake is nothing to sneeze at.

Not to speak of more unreinforced masonary buildings, which are some of the worst culprits for building damage. [en.wikipedia.org]

If your mom wants to swing from the chandelier I say more power to her! ;)
