I lived in Olympia Washington when the 7.1 hit there 12 years ago. I was walking her home from 1/2 day kindergarten and the sidewalk started rolling
under our feet. She made me piggy back her to school and back for months because she thought the ground was going to swallow her.
When I moved to KY an earthquake was the last thing I thought I would experience but this makes 2 in 6 years.
This one was a big one...luckily this area is remote and not densely populated...but i have seen reports on Facebook saying it was felt in Indiana,
Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.
A 5.1 is a pretty good shaker, and it was only 1.1 km deep. I am now waiting for the aftershocks. In Washington we had them for a week and they would
rock us (literally ) out of bed.
My daughter was driving when it hit here today and felt nothing. Thank God. I cant piggy back her any more. She is 17.
I will say I am very proud of my Jack Russell. He was having a complete fit right before this. He was climbing up on the couch pawing and barking at
our windows and running to the front door then back to me barking. I knew he was trying to tell me something but I couldn't figure out what.
Extra cookies for Clyde my Jack Russell today. He is a real good boy!!
