Listening to John B and thought for sure he would mention but didn't.

Yes you would not want to be stumbling out to the street - :D

Our waterfront is full of emergency vehicles that have the area blocked off.

Other end of the street. They have an emergency centre set up for those evacuated from their homes in the subdivision on the waterfront.

I am so glad you are O.K. Raggedyann! That was a very very large quake! I am happy that there seems to be not to be much damage, that has been reported anyway. Take care.

Thanks Doka! I am finally feeling calmer. Just listening to callers on CBC TV and there was some damage but only dishes etc. We have all been extremely lucky that it struck where it did. Tsunami alert has been downgraded to an advisory now. :)

All is well here this fine morning. :)

I did a walk around inside my old house to see if there was any cracks etc. I found cupboard doors open in the basement and one in a bedroom but luckily that's all. It sure did sway back and forth.

Yep, the fur faces are my kids. I'm always saying to them "Come with mommie". I bet the neighbours think I'm a nutty old lady! ;)
