An Albany woman had some trouble reaching relatives and family members in the DC area in the wake of Tuesday's earthquake.

While we didn't feel tremors here, the quake was felt from Atlanta to New York City.

Earthquake damage at the landmark Washington National Cathedral is forcing officials to seek a new site to hold dedication services for the memorial honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Cracks were discovered following the quake in the Washington Monument.

Pamela Green Jackson has an aunt and other family members in the DC area along with several friends, and spent Tuesday afternoon trying to reach everyone to make sure they were okay, after phone lines were overloaded.  

"Between text messages, and Facebook, and Twitter I was able to catch up with all but one of my family members and several of my friends so," said Jackson.

None of her family members had any damage to their homes. Many did feel the shaking and told her it jostled them as they shopped.
