As many living on the east coast of the United States already know, there was a magnitude 5.9 earthquake that shook several areas today. On the bright side, “the Dow has recovered from its post-quake dip, and the New York Stock Exchanged never stopped trading.” Videos after the break.

The USGS also says this is the biggest quake to roll out of Virginia since 1897. That’s a long time ago! How would 19th century bloggers like me have found out about it in New York?
