Re: Seattle Earthquake

  • From: Sean Donelan

The US Geological Survey has revised the magnitude to 7.0.

Due to structural damage in the air traffic control tower the SeaTac
airport has been closed down.  All railroad traffic at standstill
until tracks have been inspected.

Cell phones in the area are very congested, and people report difficulty
making phone calls in and out of the area.  I have not heard if any phone
companies have imposed network management controls on voice traffic.

Folks have reported in from the Westin Building, the main Internet hub
in the seattle area, that no substantional damage to the building.

Approximately 11,000 electrical customers are without power.
