Several residents living in apartments in the 1800 block of Wilson Lane in McLean, Virginia are moving out today. Their apartments have cracks from yesterday's earthquake.

At least four apartments have been condemned by Fairfax County inspectors. The fire marshal determined that while the building has significant visible damage on inside and outside walls, the load-bearing walls were not compromised.

Other residents say they don't feel safe inside their apartment and want to move.

Allyson Barden says she and her family are being moved to another apartment with the complex.

"What if there are more aftershocks, I don't want to be in here", Barden said.
