After the 5.8 earthquake, thousands turned to social media to share their experience. Many posted pictures and video to various websites, some scary, some funny. This video shows bottles breaking in a D.C. wine shop.


Mineral, Va. is reportedly the epicenter of the quake. It was felt from Ohio to New York.

A District of Columbia fire department spokesman said there were no reports of serious injuries or deaths.

Pictures started shaking in a goodwill store in D.C., items started falling, and people went running. A cell phone camera recorded the damage at a Target store in our region, where the quake brought down the ceiling tiles.

The earthquake interrupted a live weather forecast as well as an interview by ABC7’s Cynne Simpson.

A camera at a Fairfax office caught the damage from the quake. No one made a faster exist than a pharmacy technician in Chester, Va., who claimed outside through a drive-through window.
