As you all know most of the East Coast had an Earthquake and we totally freaked out. So much so the West coast has been picking on us, even Dennis Miller got in on the joke saying, "Really all this excitement over a 5.8 quake??? Come on East Coast, we have those for breakfast out here!!!!"
It's a GHOST-TOWN!
I did find one fatality though.
√ out the lil' burnt orange pigeon in the middle.
I see some CRACKS in the sidewalk!
Maybe he read this FEMA report!
Here's what it says:
The greatest danger exists directly outside buildings, at exits and alongside exterior walls. Many of the 120 deaths in the 1933 Long Beach earthquake happened when people ran outside only to be killed by falling debris from collapsing buildings. Ground movement during an earthquake is never the direct cause of death or injury. Earthquake related deaths happen from falling walls, flying glass, and heavy objects.
IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE ON FLAT GROUND....
STAY OUTSIDE ON FLAT GROUND!!!

When building anything in the City construction crews will place small plastic windows in the wooden walls so folks can see inside the vacant lot. I took some photos after the earthquake and turned them into a collage. I sure hope you like it; truthfully though it was much ado about nothing here in Gotham. A few buildings shook, the ground trembled and we went on about our merry way of a rat-race...
until next time,
