Interesting to note...
"The last "big one" in Virginia (about a 5.8 on the Richter scale) was on May 31, 1897, in Pearisburg, the county seat of Giles County. The judge in the courthouse adjourned a trial, jumped over the railing, and fled outside with everyone else as the courthouse rattled, brick walls cracked, and chimneys fell over. It was Virginia's most powerful recorded earthquake - but our recorded memory extend back only a few centuries, and the geologic history of the state extends back hundreds of millions of years. In 1959, Giles County was shaken again by a 3.8 temblor. More recently, windows were broken in a Veterans Day, 1975 earthquake in Blacksburg. "

Didn't feel anything at all -- I was sooo surprised to hear it on the news on my way home! Yikes!
And now we have eyes on a hurricane whose track keeps moving ever so slightly to the East!
Feel so bad for the Bahama Islands and the lovely people there -- we spent a summer in the Out Islands on our sailboat years ago -- looks like they're going to get slammed.
Oh, Mother Nature!
