Historian, economist and frequent Infowars contributor Dr. Webster Tarpley was witness to the 5.9 earthquake that hit the Washington, D.C. area today. Tarpley told the Alex Jones Show that he could ‘feel buildings shaking’ from his residence in Maryland, immediately North of the District of Columbia line. The quake was reportedly felt from North Carolina all the way up to New York.
Dr. Tarpley first wondered ‘what kind of airplane’ had been flying over, as the ground shook beneath him. Although earthquakes do occur in the D.C. area, one of this magnitude is rare, Tarpley pointed out. A 3.6 earthquake occurred last year in July, many times smaller on the logarithmic-based Richter scale.
Other earthquakes were felt across the United States, including a “rare, strong earthquake” in Colorado, measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale.
