Earthquake in Virginia.
Today (Tuesd 8/23) the East Coast suffered a 5.8 quake. I was driving home (Southern California) listening to a talk show when he got a call from a compatriot on the East Coast. After the obligatory discussion of the rarity of such an event there, this question was posed: "What do you call something like this in SOCAL?" I think he was looking for a definition of where a temblor stopped and it's called an earthquake. Anyway, the answer he got was: "Here we would call something like that Tuesday"
