Video from the Department of Defense shows a shaking camera shot outside of the White House as a 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit the east coast.

A spokesman for the National Earthquake Center says Mineral, Virginia was the epicenter of the quake and damage and aftershocks are likely on east coast. While an earthquake is unusual for the east coast, this area of Virginia does have an infrequent history of quakes that generally are of a magnitude of 5.
