The earthquake that shook Baltimore this afternoon damaged a wall at mayoral candidate Joseph T. "Jody" Landers' campaign headquarters.

Several cracks appeared in the building in the brick building in the 200 block of Key Highway in Federal Hill, according to an email from Landers' campaign.

Landers, a former city councilman who headed the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors until recently, said in a statement, "My thoughts are with any citizens whose homes may have been affected,"

Fellow candidate State Sen. Catherine Pugh, in an interview with WBAL TV's Jayne Miller, used the earthquake to call attention to the city's problem of vacant buildings, an issue she has discussed frequently in her campaign.
