shake, rattle, and roll
So, I was at work, in a recently-seismically-retrofitted office building, when the earthquake occurred, and it was scary enough. What did people feel, and has anyone had any damage?
I talked to our neighbor the geologist, and he said his house was rolling like mad. Some stuff was knocked over, too. He checked on our house, and he said he couldn't see any damage, except that our cat was creeping around the house on his belly, all freaked out. Hardly surprising.
Any reports out there?
Update: A friend who was visiting last week and was impressed by the feline population of Lincoln Park wrote to ask if the cats had taken this as an opportunity to take over the 'hood. Has anyone seen any signs of revolt on the part of our feline overlords?
