  3. Dusty? You alright?:(
     
  4. I am praying for those people.
     
  5. I live on the south end of the Kitsap Peninsula...I did not feel a thing. I'll ask a few friends who live further north...
     
  6. No one I spoke with felt anything...and it's not being reported by the local media.
     

  7. Hey Whirlwind..... I live in the east. but thanks for your concern.

    Pastor Gary.... I have a friend who lives on Vancouver Island who says it was not significant and a very small quake. People did feel it in there houses but there was no damage.
