our first earthquake! we just moved here from nebraska (tornados). eek! we sure felt it in mckinleyville & my husband definitely did at work in Hoopa!
The North Coast Journal reports that Caltrans had to move about 4 yards of rocks that blocked all lanes on Highway 96. The rock slide was caused by the quake but was quickly moved and traffic was back to normal in a matter of minutes.
at peace with crazy,Your husband was practically on top of the epicenter. Glad everyone is ok. About those tornados, they are super rare in California but I hear earthquakes are becoming more common in the midwest. Welcome to California.
he certainly did! & thanks. ;)
