Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I remember this event very well. My hubby was fishing out on the south jetty and I had planned on taking our youngest daughter to Centerville Beach. I was getting ready to go and my friend called me. She lived in Ferndale. While on the phone, she began screaming. I asked her what was wrong and she said Earthquake! I said I do not feel it. I was living in Fortuna. The phone line went dead. We began to rock and roll. I instructed my daughter to get under the kitchen table. I was trying to secure our 20 gallon fish tank while water was splashing out everywhere. I finally decided to get under the table myself.
While we sat there we watched the kitchen chairs topple over, the dishes falling out of the cupboards. We could hear things falling in the living room.
After the shaking stopped we climbed out and saw everything all over the floor throughout the house.
I remember thinking my hubby must be in the ocean. Then a calm feeling came over me and I knew he was ok. In about a half an hour he came pulling in. He said he was on his way home and he first thought he had a flat tire. He pulled off the road and the pick up felt like there was a gorilla in the bed of the truck jumping up and down. He noticed an old barn in a field falling down.
Later that evening when the second big one hit I was upstairs in bed. I just pulled the covers over my head. After it quit I went downstairs and hubby said he had to go check on the Hardware store he managed. He said there was paint all over and many things on the floor.
We soon learned that the sister store in Scotia was on fire. As we all know that shopping center burned to the ground.
We went up to bed and here came number three. Sounded like a freight train coming through the house. We lost all power and everything was black.
We survived and life went on. Pretty darned scary. A memory I will never forget.
