NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says an earthquake that was centered in Virginia but felt clearly in the nation's largest city didn't cause major damage or injuries.

Bloomberg said at a news conference Tuesday that the the city was taking precautions such as inspecting bridges but didn't have any indications of problems.

The 5.9-magnitude quake led to temporary building evacuations as well as suspension of area flights and trains.

District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance was starting a news conference after dismissal of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault case when the shaking began. Reporters and others began rushing out the door until it became clear it was subsiding.
