Ironically, just a few weeks before, I made a concerted effort to harden my room against quake damage by evaluating all that could get shaken down, and moving heavier stuff closer to the floor. I did this as I thought there was too long a period without any vibration at all.

On 1998-03-03 at about 01:39, I was at my desk, when I first heard all the dogs start to bark, and then about 10 seconds later, I heard a deep rumble get closer and closer, and then my room really started to shake. The neat thing was that I experienced the whole thing, and if I had wanted to, I could have easily run outside.

Well, now that you've all been shaken awake while watching Seinfeld, you may want some more information. I laugh at the disaster services, saying that we citizens should smarten up. The ambulance service was totally incapacitated, because they all evacuated their building, and the phone lines were all jammed by people talking (hey, count me in!) about it. I think I know who has to get their shit together.
Of course, if you live in Richmond, Ladner, or anywhere else that is built on sediment, then maybe have a look at what happened in Kobe Japan, where they thought that they were prepared. This is really neat, and has has many images, thus it takes a while to load.
