The 5.9 Earthquake

4 posts in this topic

Who felt it? Where were you at?

I was at home. I live in downtown Norfolk in the Botetourt building. I felt more of a swaying than shaking. Very weird feeling. I felt an earthquake on deployment in Albania in 2004 but that wasn't as strong as this one.

I'm in Greenbrier, but I slept through the whole thing lol...that'll make for a great story to tell my kids! I wonder how it felt for anyone on-board The Tide?

I was at work in a substation. I was in one of the small brick buildings in the station working on prints when suddenly my table started moving. The lights were swaying and I felt my chair shaking up and down. Everyone in the building started looking at each other and I was like "why the hell is the building shaking?" lol. Funny thing is we had a semi-truck in the lot delivering some equipment and I thought they might have hit the building. Went outside and they were all the way on the other side of the lot. Pretty much knew it had to be an earthquake by then.

I was in class at TCC at the time. 4th floor of the science building, so i felt the swaying quite a bit. As for the Tide, my son was on it (between stops apparently) when it happened. No one on board said a thing and he didn't feel it. I guess the Tide's rocking and swaying was more than an earthquake's. :P
