Virginia Earthquake Felt in Louisville

by Gabe Bullard on August 23, 2011

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake that struck in central Virginia shook buildings in Washington D.C., New York City, Cleavland and Louisville.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was 3.7 miles deep. Early reports say the quake shook several Louisville buildings and was most felt in tall buildings.

Mayor Greg Fischer’s staff felt Metro Hall shake, but a mayoral spokeswoman says MetroSafe reports “nothing out of ordinary” from the tremor.
