Well, he blames Bush for everything else….
An unusually strong magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck Virginia Tuesday afternoon, sending tremors along the East Coast of the United States.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was more than three miles deep and struck near Mineral, Va., a city in central Virginia about 83 miles from Washington, D.C. The area is known for its seismic activity, but does not generally produce large earthquakes.
Most of downtown D.C. has since been evacuated, including the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and other buildings. Pictures in the Capitol building reportedly fell from the wall and workers panicked and ran to the exits, apparently fearing a 9/11-style attack. Workers were told not to re-enter the buildings.
- There have been no reports of serious structural damage or injuries.
Buildings in New York City shook briefly and the FBI building was evacuated. Flights resumed at John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Airport, where control towers were perviously evacuated. Evacuations were felt as north as Canada.
In related news, Maxine Waters blamed the Tea Party for the quake and told them to go to hell, Obama missed a putt and blamed Bush for the mulligan, and Janet Napolitano just added ‘acts of god’ to the domestic terrorist threat assessment.
