My second reaction was to yell out and see if Dawn was ok - but she didn't answer. She had already run outside and was yelling for me to get out of the house. What a rush! When we got outside we saw hundreds of construction guys in bright orange shirts racing down the emergency steps of the soon to be finished W Hotel at Hollywood and Vine. The foreman was yelling - "Everybody Down!!!!" They were back to work within the hour and none of us felt any of the aftershocks.
I hope podunk doesn't mind if I borrow this picture, but I can imagine how these guys felt after a bit of a rumble in LA -- thankful they were ok and then a peaceful minute.
