Earthquake overview : A moderate aftershock has rattled the Virginia earthquake area. We do not expect any additional damage, but based on the Felt reports, the earthquake was felt in a wide area

Update : Aftershocks likes this one are perectly normal after a 5.9 earthquake. Occasionally an isolated 5+ quake might be possible too. A greater aftershock than the initial 5.9 is also possible, but thechance on it is very exceptional.

Update : Based on the many Felt reports we are receiving we do expect at max. some additional minimal damage within a radius of 5 km from the epicenter (which means Cuckoo alone).
