So, I was just watching the Weather Channel to see the track of Hurricane Irene and saw a breaking news story about Richmond, VA being hit with a 5.2 magnitude Earthquake?? Anyone know any more, if King's Dominion was affected or not? That would be pretty scary happening while on the top of I305 or the Observation Tower.
Edit: Guess it was a 5.9 magnitude.

It lasted for a good 45 seconds in NoVa and a few pictures fell off of my wall. Someone in PA said they felt it. Hope everyone at KD was safe since the epicenter was 34 miles from Richmond, and 9 miles from Mineral.
