Do you remember that day?

This morning John Cassidy at the Natural Resources Canada earthquake centre in Victoria tweeted about the 6.8M earthquake that happened 18 years ago today in Seattle, Washington.

So I thought I would tell the story of my experience from that earthquake. I was a relatively new employee of Malaspina University College (Now Vancouver Island University).

Leave a comment at the bottom with your experience from that earthquake.
