DC Zoo animals went crazy a few minutes before the Earthquake.
From the article (linked above and source below):
According to the zoo, about three seconds before things started to shake, the gorilla Mandara gave a yell, gathered up her baby, Kibibi, and then climbed a tree.

Earthquake news might possibly travel faster than an actual Earthquake.
Whats funny is, this is actually true. I was talking to my brother on Gchat, while feeling it in Philly. I typed to him "I think we're having an Earthquake here", he responded with "really?" then 10 seconds later says "oh sh*t, I can feel it here now too!". #Science
