I got back from a bike ride this afternoon and was told “earthquake… elevators shut down”. Apparently they have sensors and shut down if the building rocks. Lacking anything better to do, I hauled the bike up to my apartment.
Apparently the quake was 5.9 but was centered east of downtown a good distance:
I was assured my building was up to code and was built on “rollers”. So I guess if it happens while I’m here, I’ll just enjoy the ride!
