Earthquake in VA, Felt in NYC; Soap Stars React

An earthquake sent tremors from the nation’s capital to New York City and New England Tuesday afternoon, the result of what officials said was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake based in Virginia.

Here in New York City, buildings were evacuated in some cases. We felt the walls shaking at We Love Soaps headquarters. Soaps were pre-empted on local TV (of course). Soap stars immediately reacted o the quake on Twitter. Here's a sampling:

tinasloan (Tina Sloan): I felt it and the woman I was sitting with didnt ...but I had been in the bad LA earthquake so I knew what it was

@denisevasi (Denise Vasi): Kinda weird to live in California and have to call back home to NY to see if everyone is ok due to an earthquake. o_O

  1. I know why we had the earthquake! Mother Nature just found out about ABC's cancellation of AMC & OLTL! As we all know, it's not nice to upset Mother Nature!
