Adele Binder Earthquake Experience

“Shaking pure shaking” I’m Quinn Hunter and I I’m interviewing Adele Binder who experienced a 6.7 magnitude earthquake Adele Binder is my grandmother and at 3:02 am 10/15/08 experiensed intense shaking. Five minutes before she said her 3 dogs were barking non stop than it it.

The next moring plates were on the floor and glass everywhere. Local scientist say it was a very big earthquake. Adele says she was asleep at the time then woke up and ran for a table for protection. She speaks out saying she was more scared for her dogs because they all were not under something.

The damage it caused were some broken pipes and a cabinet to fall down. Adele Binder and her friends around her shocked and stunned. It took Adele longer than expected to finnaly get her house fixed but after a month it was up and looked like new. Adele says she will never forget that night. If she hadn’t woken up things wouldn’t be pretty.
