Virginia Earthquake, no news from the epicentre

Well, they are getting some felt reports, and it looks like it is quite strong in some areas.  Normally we would expect building damage (especially old brick buildings) at this level.  Probably lots of cars crushed.  It would be rare for somebody to get killed, since this is close to the 1944 Cornwall earthquake.  Nuclear plants have shut down.  Did they just notice it by their coffee cups?  By people phoning them?  We would all love to know if there were any famous Mark 1 reactors.
