The 5.8 magnitude earthquake, which originated in Virginia, brought panic to the Pentagon and the White House, and sparked fears that the iconic Washington Monument would fall.

The huge structure, which was said to have tilted because of the shudder, cracked because of the earthquake and has since been closed indefinitely to the public for immediate repairs.

Overall damage caused across the coast was estimated to be a huge $100 million. In Mineral, Virginia – the epicentre of the earthquake – people’s homes were trashed and supermarkets looked as if they had been ransacked by looters.

As ripples from the tremor hit Washington and New York, city streets across the coast were filled with thousands of people hauled out of buildings for fear they could collapse. There were also fears of a nuclear disaster of the kind seen in Japan’s Fukushima because the epicentre was just ten miles from a nuclear power plant. Federal officials said two nuclear reactors at the North Anna Power Station in Louisa County, Virginia, were automatically taken off line by safety systems.

At the Pentagon, it was reported that staff ran from the building fearing they were under attack.

As authorities revealed that aftershocks from the earthquake could last for weeks, it emerged the Washington Monument will be closed indefinitely to the public after engineers found cracks in the building.

The monument suffered minor damage but cracks were found in the stones at the top of the structure, sparking fears of collapse. A police officer had earlier insisted he had seen the monument tilting because of the vibrations. A family who were at the top of the monument when the quake hit said they felt it swap almost a foot, while pieces of the structure fell on top of them.
