Earthquake Rocks Seattle
An earthquake estimated between 6.2 and 7.0 centered approximately 30 miles southwest of Seattle shook the pacific northwest at 10:55am. Four serious injuries had been reported by about 1 pm local time. A large number of buildings in the state capital of Olympia were damaged. Tacoma and Seattle experienced less damage.
No news yet on whether ConiFur Northwest HQ suffered any damage. Also no news from MU Press which is headquartered in Seattle.
I can report that Tai-Pan central seems undamaged. My significant other reports that a number of plushies and one plant were knocked off the shelves, but otherwise things are all right.
