In officially the strangest happening I’ve ever encountered at Redskins Park, there was an 5.9 magnitude earthquake at Redskins Park today.
The epicenter was said to be in Central Virginia between Richmond and Charlottesville, southwest of Washington D.C.
No one in the building can remember seismic activity of this magnitude in the area. No damage to the building, here’s hoping that everyone in Redskins Nation is okay.
Seismologist Lucy Jones just said on CNN that this is the biggest earthquake on the east coast “in decades.”
Anthony Armstrong wins the award for the first Redskins tweet:
