5.9 earthquake usa new york washington news 23-8-2011 shakes america 23rd august 2011

5.9 earthquake shakes the usa new york and washington in america this is crazy shocking news on the 23rd august 2011, and i have been watching videos on youtube of when this earthquake hit america and people are like what is going on the room is shaking.

this is major news, because i do not ever remember hearing that earthquakes shook america as such but definitely not earthquakes shaking new york or washington dc, the capital of america.

its strange as well there is war raging in libya and america shaking from earthquakes all on the same day, the war might nearly be over in libya today and also a major news story that there is a very big earthquake in the usa on the same day.

2 massive news stories in one day with it looking like colonel muammar gaddafi has been ousted from power after 42 years, which is a massive news story, but what do i also see america has been hit by a massive earthquake at the capital of the usa washington dc and right across to new york, it basically hit a very large area in the usa across all that range of usa on the east coast, and i thought it was only the california area of the usa that was susceptible to major earthquakes along the san andreas fault line on the west coast of the united states, but not the other side of the usa on the east coast.

this is some stats about the earthquake
