Whole lotta shakin' goin' on in San Leandro...
Yesterday, a rare 5.9 quake, epicenter Virginia, rattled buildings and nerves all over the East Coast. Even the top of the Washington Monument cracked (metaphor, anyone?) No effect out here, though I did hear my New York City relatives screaming all the way in Potrero Hill. KQED's Dan Brekke, traveling in New York, noted, "it lasted longer than any California earthquake I've felt in 30 years."
