    WASHINGTON — Thousands of people were evacuating buildings across the Washington D.C. area on Tuesday after a moderate earthquake miles away in Virginia that was also felt in the Northeast and as far south as Chapel Hill, N.C.
    • Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were among the areas evacuated.
    Centered 87 miles from the nation's capital, the quake was a magnitude 6.0, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
    At the U.S. Capitol, light fixtures swung and the building shook for about 15 seconds while the tremor hit, NBC News reported.
    A mild tremor was even felt by NBC reporters with President Barack Obama during his vacation on Martha's Vineyard, an island off Massachusetts.
    The earthquake’s epicenter was between Charlottesville and Richmond, Va., the USGS reported. It was 3.7 miles deep.
    This report will be updated as information becomes available.

    Wakuu na mimi imenipata. Nilikuwa nyumbani kwangu ndo naanza kula lunch. Nimekaa kwenye kiti mara ghafla nasikia kiti kinayumba left/right na kinyago changu kimoja kuanguka kutoka ukutani. Mgeni wangu katika chumba cha juu akaja akikimbia kwa taharuki "uncle kuna nini?" Nikamwambia nadhani ni earthquake. Lakini tumesalimika.

    Hii ni hatari ya Dunia. Japan ilitokea ktk East Coast, na sasa hivi USA ktk East Coast. After shock ndiyo inatia wasiwasi kama itatokea.

    And the frightening this is that we are not even on the faultline like people in San Francisco/Los Angeles. So I guess it could happen anywhere.

    Mkuu rizki na maisha hutafutwa popote duniani hata vitabu vya dini vimesema hivyo. Ndio maana hata hao wasomali wenye njaa wamejazana pale Minneapolis kwa maelfu hadi wamefungua Somali Malls, restaurants etc.Ama Wairan na wamejaa tele kwa mamilioni pale Detroit na Jersey.
    Majanga ya dunia kama quakes, njaa, floods, tsunamis, etc. yanawezatokea kokote duniani na saa yoyote. Ajuae ni Mungu mwenyewe. Cha msingi Mungu ametunusuru leo hii na hili tetemeko hapa NYC.
    Nashukuru kwa ushauri wako though!!
