Hey Humboldt! How did you weather the storm, and by storm I mean earthquake and aftermath?

How did your places of employment fare?

My boyfriend is the tech department for the RCAA. Most of their servers were down; he went in today to push buttons and reset things. No further data until tomorrow.

A friend works at the Eureka Co-op. She took these pictures when she came into work the following day.









Another friend works at the mall.  Here are a couple of his photos.




Your turn!

I believe this is actually the Arcata Co-op.

Yes, crazy! If anyone caught video of outside, they're not sharing yet. It was an amazing ripple effect.

Hehe, well, it was put on YouTube by someone else, but I'm glad I found it for others to see.

The only thing that fell in our house was shampoo in the shower. A friend of the family had serious house damage - it has to be condemned. :(

I'm still on edge and incredibly nervous.

Thanks for the pictures of the mall. I was curious what the damage there was.

Oh wow. If you don't mind sharing, where was the house?

The bottom of Humboldt Hill. I haven't been out there but my sister told me part of the road buckled up, so I guess it was the same area?

I live in Eureka near St. Joes and we just had some things fall off shelves, nothing serious. My dog has sure been sticking close by, though! I know someone who works at Rays in Eureka and he said there's a huge crack in the floor. Apparently it was quite a mess.

My daughter and I were in Winco waiting for cash back, but when the second big roll hit the cashier dropped everything and ran out yelling.People were pretty calm at first but when the lights went out it was chaos,everyone just leaving their groceries and running for dear life. The whole inside of the store was flying around and huge pieces of the ceiling were falling in. There was a BOOM BOOM after the initial shock and it sounded like some giant hand was tearing the roof off.I've lived in California my whole life and just sort of take all the quakes in stride, but this one scared the bejesus out of me.Our house is one of those industrial strength post World war two structures, so, though the inside was trashed the structure is fine. Our neighbors two houses down weren't so lucky though, that house completely collapsed off its foundation. It was about four feet up so it went pretty far sideways when it landed, Thank god no one was in it at the time.I know they just got the OK to tear down old town bar and grill. So sad, I hope we don't lose anything else. I also heard from a reliable source that the mall will likely be closed for three weeks to a month.

I am moving back to Eureka next month from LA... I keep having visions of coming home to a ghost town or some sort of barren wasteland. I know that isn't so, but still that's what it feels like reading these things.
