DC residents and workers were startled today when a large earthquake rattled up and down the east coast. On the 3rd floor of the Panorama Productions office at 14th and K, the ceiling buckled and tiles fell. All along K street, office workers ran out into the streets to seek refuge from the unexpected tremors.
Karla Andrews, who works in the office next door, tells us “I was just sitting in my office when I heard a rumbling, then everything started shaking. People screamed, ceiling tiles fell, fire alarms went off. It was really scary, I’ve never been through anything like that before.”
As people evacuated out of the building, they were greeted by a sea of confused people as everyone in downtown offices streamed from their buildings as well. Our social media guy snapped these pictures as the events unfolded on August 23rd, 2011 as Washington DC shook like mad!
