Looking back… Maryland Earthquake

Back on 16 July 2010, there was a gentle earthquake that shook the state of Maryland and Virginia. The quake was centered at 39.187 degrees N, 77.286 degrees W


The quake occurred a few minutes after 5 AM local time, rattling those in the area with a magnitude of 3.4 on the Richter scale.  More about this event can be found on the US Geological Society’s web site here.

The photos that were released by individuals on the scene showed the damage in the affected area.  A small sampling of these photos has been posted below…
