Crowds of people wait outside of Union Station on Aug. 23, 2011, following a 5.8-magnitude earthquake that hit the east coast of the United States. The quake had an epicenter of Mineral, Va., east of Charlottesville, but could be felt along much of the Eastern seaboard, including D.C. All buildings in downtown D.C. were evacuated. (Barbara L.
