RE: Seattle Earthquake

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are located in Bellevue, WA.  4th story location in 20yr old midrise.
Building initially "jumped" (Minor, made a sound like a dull drum bang) with
aftershocks coming about 15 sec. later.  Building under acceleration for
about 15 seconds and continued diminishing vibrations for 3 minutes.  

No real damage that I have seen in the area. No shelving toppled or books
fallen.  Initial reports say 6.2, UW says 4.7.
