I was on the 8th floor of the Wheaton Plaza North Office Building when the earthquake happened. I was just finishing a physical therapy appointment was was laying down on a table when the tremors started. The pt office is on the 8th floor of the building and the shaking was so strong that it all most knocked me off the table, It started out so at first a so low rumble then picked up intensity. People evacuated the building on their own. I went out front and a MontCo police officer told me they were evacuating the Wheaton Plaza. He said as a precaution. No reports of damage but they were going to bring in a structural engineer to make sure the building was safe.

I wanted to share this picture of the crack in the parking garage at my office building on Gallows Rd in Tyson’s Corner. There were also chunks of concrete around my car but didn‘t pause to take a picture. Just want to get my car out and get home! Thanks for your excellent coverage of the event.

Hello, I live on the ground floor of an apartment building in Rockville, MD and I was in the kitchen when everything started falling off the shelves. I just barely missed getting hit by the knife that rattled off the knife rack and onto the counter. Michelle Payne
