Twitter was shakin' as much as the earth this afternoon, when a 5.9 magnitude quake struck in Virginia and sent tremors as far north as Toronto. New York has reported little damage, but because it’s the largest city in the country and home to major media outlets, the slight tremors are getting plenty of attention. Fortunately, the fallout has been minimal (buildings, potentially including the Washington Monument, have been damaged in D.C., but no fatalities or serious injuries have been reported on the East Coast) – leaving realtime reporting ripe for cheeky quips and photos. We’ve picked our favorite travel responses so far:

Buttons would suffice, but T-shirts would be even better.
Well, fancy that.
