5.8 earthquake jolts Washington, DC; shocks felt in NYC and Boston

A magnitude 5.8 earthquake rattled the East Coast this afternoon, causing panic and confusion from North Carolina to as far north as New Hampshire, the US Geological Survey said.

The Pentagon and Capitol Building in Washington, DC, were evacuated at 1:51 p.m., shortly after a powerful tremble was felt.

There is no safe place to go. It would be nice if there was but if millions are evacuating then all hell breaks loose.

Here in Alberta, Canada if you go to work for a company or an employer of some sort a rescue and evacuation plan is required to be in place and everyone involved has to know what the plan is, it is the law.
Where is our city wide evacuation/rescue plan for earthquakes and other disasters and why don't we know what it is and why don't you know the rescue/evacuation plans for your area where ever that may be?
Is it because there is no plan?

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.

Did you think you were put here for something less?
