Where were you when the Nisqually earthquake hit? KING/5 wants to share your memories
At 10:54 a.m. on Feb. 28, 2001, millions of people in Western Washington lived 45 seconds they’d not soon forget: the Nisqually earthquake.
Were you one of them?
Monday marks the tenth anniversary of the 6.8 magnitude quake that struck the area, and news station KING/5 wants to share your memories. Just post where you were the moment the quake struck on Intersect and see it stream this weekend on KING5.com.
KING/5 staffers are even sharing their own experiences. Would you believe KING’s Ryan Subica was watching a compilation of top natural disaster TV promos when the earthquake struck?
Sharing your experience is easy. Just:
- Sign up (it’s quick – we promise)
