The National Park Service has released some security footage from last month's DC earthquake, and it is absolutely terrifying. The scene goes from laid-back texting park ranger to full-on panic in about five seconds flat.

The Washington Monument was cracked by the 5.8 magnitude quake., and the Washington Post now reports the elevator was also damaged. So what do you think, snooty, Earthquake-jaded Californians? Does this count as a "real earthquake" now?
