    Felt down here in Greensboro, NC. Our corporate office is located about 10 minute north of Richmond, VA. Their office got hit pretty hard. Shook things off the wall and took communications down for a bit. Even cell phone networks went down along the East Coast.

    Both the hurricane and the quake can be blamed on 8 years of failed Bush policies. Global warming is REAL!!!

    Gizmodo has a nice article on what if the earthquake hit Manhattan. What If the Earthquake Had Hit Manhattan?

    I spoke with Dan O'Brien, a Program Manager for the NYS Office of Emergency Management and one of the co-authors of that report. He said that while it was published in 2005, the findings largely hold true today. And that the biggest risk isn't the city's the towering skyscrapers; it's the brownstones:

    The [structures] that are of a particular concern are unreinforced masonry. The brownstones, six-story, turn of the century. Those are the buildings that don't have much ability to withstand lateral forces, and they tend to crumble.
    To be blunt i think some sort of earthquake in NYC is long overdue, we can probably say the same for a few other cities that don't have a history of them but have small fault lines underneath.

    'overdue' in geological times could mean we don't have 'the big one' for another 3000 years. and if we're not on fucking hoverboards by then, we don't deserve to live.

    The Weather Channel says the east coast earthquake was caused by an unknown fault line running under D.C. and through Virginia. It is now being called Obama's Fault, though Obama will say it's really Bush's Fault. Another theory is that it was the effect of a $14.6 trillion check bouncing in Washington.

    Go ahead and get ready for a long power outage. Get what you need, especially gasoline! If nothing else, it's fun to watch the madhouse that is walmart. It doesn't look likely that the strong edge of the storm will hit NE, but it's nothing to laugh at.
