WC residents still shaken by earthquake

Westchester residents are still trying to wrap their heads around the earthquake that shook the region yesterday afternoon. The epicenter was located in Mineral, Va., approximately 40 miles northwest of Richmond. Tremors from the 5.8-magnitude quake reached as far north as Toronto, Canada. The county and federal courthouses in White Plains were evacuated after officials received numerous reports that the buildings were swaying. "Everything was quiet until the building started to rumble and the floor started to move left and right," one office worker said. The buildings have since been reopened.Orange County residents shaken up by quakeMagnitude 5.8 earthquake rattles Westchester
