Its startled users were among the first to report the 2011 earthquake, the biggest in Virginia in more than a century. Here’s a sample of the initial reports across the region.

Instagram users captured the scene as workers streamed out of their offices, while others lightheartedly posted images of “damage.”

While some high-profile structures suffered millions of dollars in damage, notably the Washington National Cathedral and the Washington Monument, most buildings and homes were spared damage. A meme with the words “We will rebuild” — sometimes accompanied by the scene of a single, fallen white chair — facetiously came to represent the aftermath and quickly went viral.
