U.S. Geological Survey checking into Monday’s rumblings–The federal agency that keeps track of earthquakes wants to hear from coastal residents about two rumbles that shook houses Monday from the Outer Banks to Virginia Beach. Unlike the occasional booms heard and felt along the Outer Banks from time to time, Monday’s rumbles lasted as long 20 seconds. The first occurred at 4:24 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and the second at 6:24 p.m. When the 5.8-magnitude earthquake in Virginia shook our region in August of 2011, it was reported within minutes by the USGS.
