Literally overnight, D.C. Public Schools' leaders changed their minds and went from all schools being open today to a district-wide shutdown in the wake of yesterday's earthquake. School officials say they were dealing with information that kept coming in throughout the night.
While much of the D.C. area is back to business as usual today after the earthquake, it's not so easy for those closer to the epicenter. The town of Culpeper, Va., located less than 40 miles north of the quake's epicenter, is facing a pretty hefty cleanup.
