There is a ground stop (meaning no planes can take off or land) at Washington Reagan and NYC's JFK due to the earthquake. I'm sure it will be short-lived just until they can inspect the runways, etc.
Speaking of Chicago (ORD), there are 15 minute delays due to the thundershowers moving out of the area. However, more thunderstorms are likely later today.
Pentagon was not evacuated, some people ran outside that is all. Things normal now.
Favorite Tweet: "Local TV station interviews earthquake 'victims' forced to stand outside in sunny, 80° weather."
Least Favorite Tweet: From Howard Kurtz (who presents himself as objective), "How long until Republicans blame the quake on Obama?" How about focusing on whether anyone was hurt by the quake, Howard?
