As far as earth-shattering news, it's probably not as big as the fact that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went out with an injury to his ribs in the second half in the game against the Washington Redskins.

But the news is literally earth-shaking.

The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Geological Survey recorded a minor earthquake in Virginia.

The magnitude 3.0 earthquake happened at about 4:17 p.m. Saturday.

The epicenter of the quake was 20 miles north of Richmond. Trembling could be felt in Richmond and Charlottesville -- and as far away as Canton, N.C., some 339 miles away.
