LISTEN: Reporters 'rock and roll' through 2001 Nisqually earthquake
Twenty years ago Sunday, a 6.8-magnitude earthquake hit the Puget Sound region. If you went through the Nisqually quake, you probably have a story to go with it.
KNKX’s Paula Wissel -- along with other reporters working in the region -- experienced it. One thing about the quake was its timing. It struck on a Wednesday morning, at exactly 10:54 a.m.
It was a busy news day, with reporters at news conferences in Seattle and covering the Legislature in Olympia. Bill Gates was demonstrating new technology to a roomful of teachers. A basketball tournament was underway at the Tacoma Dome.
Listen above as these reporters share their earthquake memories -- and hear some of those rumbling moments caught live.
