Most people on the island felt the Quake, (Except for Veda who refused to believe Tom and I until the Sirens sounded). I happened to be at the Airport Seeing off Mayor Shirley Marquardt and her son Rex on the 7:30 Flight. The Person watching their house on vacation could not do it last night so I Needed to take care of their dog Shadow for the night. Well the Earthquake happened and then Shirley and Rex got on the plane and I drove to her house to Take Shadow for a good Run. Once I got the Dog in the truck we were headed up Strawberry Hill and Shirley Calls saying that there was going to be a Tsunami warning in like 10 minutes with the Sirens going off. I race Down off the Hill to the Hotel, Set off the General Alarm and with the Other Managers, Unisea Security and the UPD Evacuate the Hotel. I actually had to stand there with my finger on the button to keep the alarm going. Then I grabbed a case of water and headed up Strawberry Hill With the Dog so if anything did happen he would be more comfortable close to his house.
And here are some shots from His morning walk around the Hotel
A Cute Glamor shot of Him and Lupins
And A Mid Morning Run on the Beach.
So Shirley, The Island is fine and So is Shadow. He did not even make a mess in the house overnight.
