My Worst Earthquake Experience

 

My most terrifying earthquake experience

My most terrifying earthquake experience did not happen in Southern California where I have lived almost my whole life and have, there, experienced dozens of earthquakes.

The first earthquake I remember was the 6.6 Sylmar quake which jolted Southern California at 6 a.m. February 9, 1971. I was at a friends house getting ready for school when the house started shaking violently.  I recall running down a hallway and bouncing off the walls, side to side on my way out of the house.

The most terrifying earthquake experience I’ve ever had actually happened in Las Vegas on January 17, 1994 at 4:30 a.m.

I was staying at the, then, luxurious Excalibur Hotel with some friends. We were asleep on the 22 floor when we were awoken by  the rocking and swaying hotel room.  It was so strong I panicked, leaped from bed and bolted to towards the door.  I quickly remembered where I was and realized that I was not going to get down 22 flights of stairs in time to save my life if the hotel tower fell.

The room was still shaking as moved to the window to see what was going on outside and on the Vegas Strip below. I saw the water in the swimming pool splashing out on to the deck but nothing more. There were no falling buildings or crashing cars and people were not running around in a panic.

At this time an intercom speaker came to life and someone in the hotel announced that there had been an earthquake but everything was safe.

The shaking stopped and soon after I went back to sleep with no further incident.

The next morning we learned that our hotel was shaking, not due to a large quake in the Las Vegas area but from a 6.7 temblor located in Northridge, California. Only 30 miles or so from my home!

We all called home to see if there was any damage or injury to our home or loved ones. Thankfully everything in Orange County was fine but in Los Angeles there were fires, buckled roads and emergency personnel working hard to rescue affected citizens.

In all, 57 people died in this quake.

Oddly, many people we spoke to in Las Vegas the following morning did not feel anything. I guess it was strong enough to rock tall buildings but people on the ground could did feel anything.

I still amazes me that the quake was not closer to Las Vegas with the amount of rocking and swaying I felt that night. I hope that I am not in a high rise hotel or building when the BIG ONE hits.

What is your worst earthquake story? I’d love to hear it.
