Earthquake on the East Coast! Celebs React Via Twitter

New York City got a taste of what it's like to reside on the West Coast when they felt the ripple effect of a 5.8 earthquake that hit Virginia on Tuesday afternoon.

Almost immediately following the rumble, celebs were tweeting up a storm. Everyone from Jersey Shore girl Deena Nicole Cortese reporting on the "earth quack" to Gossip Girl Leighton Meester retweeting the Village Voice announcement!

According to CNN, in addition to Virginia, the quake was felt in Washington D.C., Ohio, New York, North Carolina, Martha's Vineyard and Toronto. Did you feel the earth shake? Let us know in the comments!!!

As mentioned, Deena was one of the first to start tweeting, with one of her latest posts reading: 

"Yeah it's the end of the workd {sic world} as we know it.. I'm starting to believe it.. East coast getting earthquakes? Since when."
Her Shore mate Snooki followed that up by writing: "Omg earthquakeeeee."

Another reality star, Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon also commented on the quake, writing: 

"There was a 5.8 earthquake in Virginia - felt in New York, so perhaps that why the stylebar in sag harbor wobbled! Wild!"
Mandy Moore even responded to the news: "woah...earthquake madness! hope everyone on the east coast is safe and sound."

    earth quakes are not good for anybody but just because people are use to earhtquakes being on the west or in cali it doesnt mean it will never happen in other places .The earth is always changing, it doesnt stay the same .Theres nothing anybody can do to stop it you just have to accept it and watch

    the earth poles will be shifting and when it does if they think this was scary when the real mother nature comes and it will be 10 times worse because of the pole shift and the storms will be worse all over the world in places that never been hit before including the east coast as well as west.

    I WAS SOUND ASLEEP AND WHEN I WOKE UP EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT A EARTHQUAKE ? IM PRETTY SURE THE GROUND SHOOK PLENTY OF TIMES ON THE EAST COAST BEFORE TODAY BECAUSE I FELT IT ONCE AND IT WAS A BIT SCARY. MAYBE GOD IS TRYING TO TELL ALL THE SINNERS OF THE WORLD HURRY UP AND REPENT YOUR SINS HAHA I WAS SCARED BUT NOW IM READY FOR IT, THIS WORLD & LIFE HAS BROUGHT ME NOTHING BUT PAIN AND SUFFERING ANYWAY.THE EARTH IS NOT GOING TO STAY THE SAME FOR EVER ESP WITH WHAT WE ARE DOING TO IT. THE EARTH HAS TO CHANGE AND IF WE DO HAVE THESE EARTHQUAKES ON THE EAST COAST PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO GET USE TO IT AND LIVE WITH IT.THE EAST RARELY GETS HIT WITH ANY BAD STORMS LIKE WEST DOES SO JUST LEARN IT CAN HAPPEN AND DONT MAKE IT A BIG DEAL.

    Live in Va our whole house shook, my legs were shaking so bad, from being startled. WOW don't under estimate where you live, and think this only happens in California. I guess this is the plates shifting on earth, I heard this awhile back that the plates would be shifting due too the planets aliening and the earth's axis rotating. Deborah
