Earthquake in Annandale. Score: 1.8

I just got this from the Arlington Alert email system:

The USGS has confirmed a magnitude 1.8 “micro” earthquake occurred near Annandale, VA at 1:30pm.  There have been no reports of damage or injuries.

Anybody feel this? Any news to report from it?

    In California, we laugh at anything less than a 5.

    I live in Annandale and felt it! My friend text me and told me it was a earthquake and I thought it was just a big Fedex truck or soemthin outside. This is KARAZY! I never heard of mess like this!

    They were just building out the highspeed presidential escape tunnel and used a bit too much blasting gel.
