August 27, 2011: On Tuesday, August 23 at 1:51 p.m., a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck Virginia. The quake was said to be felt from South Carolina up through New England, and even in Toronto. According to the US Geological Survey, the area felt two aftershocks Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with magnitudes of 2.8 and 2.2. No major damages were reported.

Now hurricane Irene, a ferocious and slow-moving storm, smashed into North Carolina this morning. It is moving up the Eastern Seaboard, flooding low-lying areas and knocking out power to as many as 1 million customers. Irene is forcing the densely populated regions of Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York City to take unprecedented steps as they brace for the impact. Irene is expected to continue its northward path through New England before weakening early Sunday morning

Meanwhile in cyber space, "The Earthquake Girl" is born. On August 24, a local radio station (AMP 98.7) posted an interview with Ashanti Staten of Alexandria, Virginia. "Puddin followed up with the Alexandria, Va resident to shake loose a little extra. You gotta hear what Earthquake girl reveals", reads radio notes. On August 26, the Earthquake Girl struck the west coast.

The earthquake has passed and so will Irene, but out from the middle came the "Earthquake Girl", Staten.
