    Earthquake damage in my home office


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SusanPDC says she's been a little 'shaken' by the quake. 'The most dramatic damage was in my home office – in an upstairs bedroom. 2 of the 4 wall bookshelves had fallen off the walls, knocking, books, CDS, photos, decorative objects crashing over my desk and floor and desk chair. My computer monitor were knocked over and covered by books. A few CD cases broke, and 2 statues were broken. Poor Aristotle was decapitated, and my Will Shakespeare statue was broken off its base.'
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    Two bookshelves fell off the wall of my home office during the DC earthquake, sending books and CDs everywhere, and knocking over my computer monitor. My house was built in 1926, and is in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington. A couple of little statues were broken, including one of Shakespeare and one of Aristotle. No one was hurt, but we were all scared by the approximately 30 second long quake.
