Earthquake hits Washington, DC

A 5.4 earthquake hits Washington, DC.
Speaking as someone who grew up near there, earthquakes in this area are rare, unlike the West Coast. Few to no buildings are designed to withstand a quake in most cities in this region. Here are some non corporate media links:

I see the WTC7 spot right below this article about the quake not being natural.
If it happened dead center, then maybe you could make a case.
But this is no more credible than saying it GOD caused to happen on the MLK statue memorial day opening.
Duh.
