EARTH QUAKE

We must have had an earthquake tonight. 01.28.06
Any info on the earth quake? I had thought someone ran their car into my house - went out front and alas there was nothing, and no one.

Mt. Tabor? St. Helens? Explosion? Earth Quake?

There has been a great deal of earthquake activity around the volcano Augustine. This volcano is on red alert. It could erupt at any time. There could be an increased amount of tectonic activity from Alaska to the coasts of America and Asia. There has to be a plan if people in these areas experience a large tremor or quake. From Portland head South East. From Seattle North East.

"There has to be a plan if people in these areas experience a large tremor or quake. From Portland head South East. From Seattle North East."

Sorry, but head where? Into the North Cascades (assuming the roads are in any condition to carry traffic after a large quake)? Why? And Mt. Augustine has been spewing ash intermittently for the past month or so. Volcanoes are prone to do that.
