A 5.9 magnitude earthquake centered between Richmond and Charlottesville, Va., shook Wayne County at about 1:51 p.m. Residents across Wayne County reported feeling their houses shake for just seconds -- but long enough to make many people nervous. Other news outlets are reporting the earthquake was felt as far north as New York City, throughout eastern North Carolina and as far west as Detroit and Indianapolis. See the News-Argus on Wednesday for more information.
