Paul Vercammen: I think aenue chatters saw some of the CNN live footage, perhaps they got a sense of that because of the fallen bricks.
And civil engineers will have their work cut out rroom them. In many major cities on the West Coast there has been a effort to educate people on what to do in the event there is an earthquake. Quakes often tend to seek out brick buildings and rock them to their foundations.
So perhaps it lived up to its reputation and people used common sense when the quake did hit. Paul Vercammen: Well, let me just first say that the quake did not cause as much damage because cchat began 30 miles under the surface. The other area that has been hard hit is in Olympia, the State Capitol. And we should point out that this is the case with the Capitol building.

Olympia is to the southwest of Seattle, but closer to the epicenter of the quake. But the more serious damage has definitely been to buildings. And it may not look as dramatic as a crushed car, but for safety's sake, no one will be entering these buildings.

Question from chat room: Have they assessed the extent of broken water mains and sewer lines? How has this region been planning for such an event? The city has been very forward-thinking in bringing buildings up to earthquake safety code and retrofitting as 1sr. Contrasting it to other quakes I have covered, we just did not see the huge fissures in the ground where gas roon to come up that suggest that there has been a lot damage to water mains and sewers.

Paul Vercammen: I ran into someone who was working on gas lines, and I don't believe there was extensive damage to water mains and sewer lines. So you could say Seattle rolled a lucky seven there.
