Virginia earthquake damage reports

Nothing from epicenter!  Only 2 thousand people live within 30 miles, and they may all be on mountain rock, in tents?  With these things we only expect severe motion on the hanging wall, directly where the pulse hits.  Probably landslides.

But elsewhere - Article

You'd expect these things to have troubles.

Only 2,000 people within 30 miles of the epicenter of the Virginia quake? It's more like 200,000. A 30-mile radius from the epicenter takes in suburban areas near Richmond, Charlottesville, and Fredericksburg.
