Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,  

Drop, cover, and hold on!  Did you feel the earthquake yesterday? 

On Thursday morning, a 3.19 magnitude earthquake shook a few people up around 6:22am between the Black Diamond and Enumclaw area. Fortunately, there have been no reports of harm.

This earthquake reminds us how important it is to be and stay prepared for an earthquake. Some tips for this are:

  • Find out if you live or work in a liquefaction area that may be impacted during an earthquake. While all areas within our region are susceptible to earthquake damage, liquefaction areas may be more vulnerable.
  • Pick safe places in your home where you could Drop, Cover, and Hold On during an earthquake. Safe places could be under a sturdy table or desk or against an interior wall away from windows, bookcases, or tall furniture that could fall on you. Remember to do the same at work or other places where you spend lots of time.
  • If your home was built before 1977, check to see if the foundation is bolted to the frame.
