A 5.3 quake is quite noticeable but not particularly severe.  Given the 
location and a 6.0 (upgraded from 5.8) on the East Coast, I can see the 
quake in Colorado not making the news.  I haven't heard anything about it in 
Oklahoma either.  The disruption of rail, air and highway traffic around 
D.C. is far more important to the news powers than a little shaking out in 
the hinterlands.
