I was in Wal-Mart when it happened. There was stuff flying off the shelves including shampoo bottles, lotion bottles smashing on the floor, same with sauce jars, it was a mess in there.

Parklawn building in Rockville (second largest federal building behind the Pentagon, I think). Was on 15th floor. First shock, thought construction, second shock thought bomb. Then that F-n building SWAYED. Stairwells were PACKED. One of my staff had recent hip surgery and struggled with a cane, much less having to walk down 15 flights. We took our time, and I just kept thanking the cosmos for now more shocks. She was terrified. Kept us outside for an hour, then told to get cars in the garage and leave. Traffic surprisingly LIGHT heading north to Carroll County. Poor Laura had to leave soon after the shock hit the house and go to work!

I was in Columbia eating lunch at Baja Fresh outside. Myself and a a couple other thought a truck hit the building. I got my ass up and away from the window I was next to and could see the canopy above us moving and all. Then we saw people coming out of the other businesses and WalMart. Watched the windows on the other stores shake some when the aftershocks came...

I was standing in the cafeteria at school and the ground just started shaking, then they evacuated the building.
