How to survive the next (big) earthquake | Opinion

  • Today at 9:00AM

I’ll be honest with you—I slept right through the magnitude 4.0 quake, centered on the Hood Canal about 45 miles west of here, last Wednesday, Sept. 17. My wife was up early, browsing her iPhone; she’s usually the one who tells me about these quakes, and all I can do is shrug.
