My family lived on the 13th floor of the L Street Apt’s. I was only 8 years old but I remember that day vividly. My stepfather was talking to his brother on the phone when the quake began. He yelled, Oh my God, we’re having an earthquake! The phone went dead. That’s how Seattle found out about it. I have a magazine with many photos of that horrible day, including the apt building we lived in. Thank you for an informative site and the stories are healing for me. I, like many others, am still terrified of loud rumbling noises and I run when there’s an earthquake. (I live in the northwest). You won’t find me under a table or in a doorway……
