Default Central VA Earthquake

I was all of 20 miles from the epicenter....the building started shaking with a noise that sounded like what you hear when a jet engine is taking off at the airport...a rumbling slowly rising and falling in amplitude for about 10 seconds.

Since there's a large crane outside, I began to wonder if it was falling or something.

Nothing like the last earthquake I was through...that one sounded like someone dropped an empty dumpster on the pavement just outside the building.
