New York City has experienced what is believed to be an earthquake, rattling the city just before 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
The center of the earthquake appears to be in Virginia, near the Washington, D.C. border.
KENS 5 TV reports that the Pentagon is being evacuated, and attempts to call multiple Virginia-area phone numbers from IBTimes offices have been met with error messages. Text messages do not appear to be sending successfully.
A Fire Command Station announcement reported a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Virginia that is being felt as far north as upstate New York.
IBTimes will continue to update the story.
