WASHINGTON â€” A 5.9 magnitude earthquake centered northwest of Richmond, Va., shook much of Washington, D.C., and was felt as far north as Rhode Island and New York City and as far south as North Carolina and Alabama.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was 3.7 miles deep. Shaking was felt at the White House and all over the East Coast, as far south as Chapel Hill. Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were evacuated. The quake was in Mineral, Va., in Louisa County.
Immediately after the earthquake, social media networks exploded with activity.
Some people would look at the building on 1717 Highland Ave NE in Hickory and just see an old building, but Jeff and Carol Anne Hartman see much more.
â€śItâ€™s an old house, so itâ€™s not super fancy,â€ť Carol Anne said. â€śIt doesnâ€™t have all the bells and whistles of a new building, but it has charm and character of a space where you just want to soak in everything thatâ€™s been there for the last 70 years and let it create something.â€ť
Davey Glover loves his job.
Heâ€™s a data analyst at Shurtape Technologies in Hickory, and has worked for the company for more than 35 years.
But after being diagnosed with Lou Gherigâ€™s Disease last year, Davey canâ€™t talk, can barely walk, and will have to stop working Aug. 31.
Though he is weak and on a feeding tube now, friends, family and colleagues say Davey â€śwas one of a kind,â€ť â€śa marvelous man,â€ť and a significant member of his church and community.

The St. Stephens volleyball team won its third match of the season, but Maiden didnâ€™t make it easy on them.
After winning the first two games 25-14 and 25-19, the Lady Indians (3-0) fought tooth-and-nail with Maiden (0-1) for the third and deciding game.
St. Stephens persevered past the Blue Devils to win the game and match, 29-27.
â€śThe last game was a nail-biter,â€ť said Lady Indians coach Denise Mullins. â€śI am really proud. All the girls really showed their ability. They showed how hard they came to play.â€ť
