Also a few months ago we had "reports" of an earthquake in Perth. I proceeded to lol and call anyone who believed it a fucktard as anyone who knows about tectonic plates know's Australia like Perth is in the middle of fucking nowhere,
The North American tectonic plate extends to halfway into the Atlantic Ocean. So Virginia is a very stable state. It's extremely rare for the East Coast to get earthquakes, but they travel a good distance because the earth is more dense in the New England states. Until geologists can figure out where it originated from, there's currently no known fault line in the area they hypothesize is the origin point of the quake. The closest seismic zone is easily 20 miles to the south west.
