About 10:30 am or so the Seattle area was rocked by a 4.7 quake. The radio is reporting like it's the end of the world. A couple of people I work with are from Kalifornication and they stated that they LEFT Kalifornication to get away from the earthquakes. Riots in Seattle last night, earthquakes today, what next, the rivers will run red with blood? GEF Aluminum foil beanie on!

www.king5.com BREAKING NEWS: 6.4 Earthquake hits Pacific Northwest February 28, 2001, 12:00 PM SEATTLE – A strong earthquake shook the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday, shattering windows in downtown Seattle and rattling Portland, Ore., for nearly half a minute. There was no immediate word of injuries. Click Image to Enlarge. Damage outside the Icon Grill in downtown Seattle The view from Skyking Jim Forman spotted a fire on top of a warehouse just north of the West Seattle Bridge. The magnitude 6.4 earthquake hit at approximately 10:55 a.m., according to federal officials at the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska. It was centered 35 miles southwest of Seattle. The quake was felt as far away as Salt Lake City. KING 5’s Jim Forman in Skyking found parts of at least five buildings in the industrial area south of Seattle had collapsed, including the Starbucks headquarters. Debris falling from one building damaged a car. Portions of a brick building front fell onto the sidewalk in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. Some structural damage also was reported at Bellevue Community College east of the city. The college was closed for the day. Forman also spotted a fire on the roof of a warehouse on Fourth Avenue South just north of the West Seattle Bridge. Some Seattle schools were damaged, but there were no initial reports of injuries or any significant damage, Seattle School District Superintendent Joseph Olchefske told KING 5 News. Children were not being sent home, because that “would only compound the chaos,” Olchefske said. Schools were evacuated immediately after the quake, and buildings were checked for safety before children were allowed back inside. A Seattle City Light spokesman said 17,000 customers were without power. Witness accounts "Everyone was panicked," said Paulette DeRooy of Seattle, who was in an elevator descending from the 15th floor from a downtown Seattle building when the temblor struck. She and several others scrambled onto a fire escape.

Screams erupted at a nearby hotel, where Microsoft founder Bill Gates was addressing an education and technology conference. He was whisked away as his audience bolted for the exits. Some audience members were knocked down by others trying to get out. Video of the speech showed the stage shaking violently, and some overhead lights falling to the floor. "This is the biggest thing I've ever felt," said Darcy Nebergall, 24, of Seattle, who was at work in a downtown skyscraper. "It felt kind of like a big rollercoaster going by. You could feel the building sway, but you know they're built to withstand this kind of stuff. Or you hope anyway." Windows were popped out of some downtown building, and people who had left buildings gathered in the streets. Alice Ayers, at her Seattle home, said it was "like a giant truck was going by. Everything was kind of bouncing." Quake jolts lawmakers Closer to the epicenter in Olympia, legislators, government workers and visiting school children flooded out of the Capitol and other buildings. The state Senate was in session. "The chandelier started going and the floor started shaking. Someone yelled get under the table and so we did," said Sen. Bob Morton, R-Orient. "The sudden violence let us know that this was a bad one." Cracked plaster, gilt and even paintings fell from the walls, but Morton said he saw no sign of major structural damage. Officials were particularly afraid the Capitol dome would collapse, he said. Some people linked hands as they walked down the marble stairs under the heavy dome. "If that rascal had tumbled down, it would have been all over," Morton said. Temblor felt in Portland In downtown Portland, office buildings swayed for 20 to 30 seconds, and local television stations were deluged by calls from viewers reporting rolling motion across the area. Michelle Noonan of suburban Lake Oswego, Ore., said the quake was strong enough to move things around in her house. "Everything was shaking," Noonan said. "It knocked over a wood pile outside house. Books fell off the shelf." The quake was the largest to hit the Northwest since a 5.6 temblor centered in Scotts Mills, about 35 miles south of Portland, on March 25, 1993. That quake was the most destructive earthquake in Oregon's history, causing $30 million in damage.

Anybody stupid enough to try getting away from earthquakes by going to a city that is on the Pacific 'Ring of Fire' and has a large volcano as it's most dominate piece of skyline needs to be crushed by a collapsing roof. Preferably before they breed.

Amen to that. The exact thoughts were going through my mind when I read that one. Anyone moving to Seattle to escape earthquakes deserves to be removed from the gene pool. Love the name, buy the way. Are you a Jeff Cooper fan? What's up with his barely concealed hatred for AR-15s, anyway? Adam

It is amazing how, in stressfull situations, the sheeple just look for someone to take orders from. $20 says the person who yelled to get under the table was also a gun owner. What does this Senator's coting record look like? White
