Earthquake rocks Bethesda at 1:50 p.m. Tuesday.
I was in La Madeleine in Bethesda eating lunch. The place started shaking like a train was passing by. Ground felt slightly like a trampoline. Lasted about 10 seconds. felt a very small aftershock afterwards. People started running out. Throngs of people standing outside office buildings in Bethesda.
Reports state that it was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake centered about 100 miles south of Washington, D.C.
