DMV Earthquake!

I was in the bathroom with my 3 year old daughter, talking on the phone with my good friend Stacia. Suddenly, the bathroom began to shake. I thought the maintenance workers in my complex were working or drilling something like they normally do. But when the walls & building began to move violently, I knew my daughter and I had to get out of harms way.

When we get outside, to my surprise, my neighbors were already outside. It had been confirmed that an Earthquake had happened.  The shock & fear on everyone's face was beyond words. I honestly thought this area didn't get Earthquakes. My husband was at work  & our 3 sons were at school during the time of the quake, which made me all the more sad. I wasn't sure what their experience was like in the Earthquake. I wanted to be there for them.

Outside of all the news reports & so on, my biggest fear was the after shocks. I didn't know what to expect, I wanted to know how could I help my family in the event of an after shock. Here are some tips I read up on FEMA website. These tips may help you as well. There is nothing wrong with planning ahead. It is better to be safe than sorry.


  1. How are you guys doing sis? Be safe out there.

  2. Everything is good now. I think we all were a little shook up. I am so glad it's over lol
