    Naval Hospital Shook


    I was at work in the Portsmouth Naval Hospital when the earthquake hit us. This is only the second earth quake I have ever been through and for many people here, there first. Many people I talked to afterwards said at first they thought they were just dissy. Most of the people in the main buildings evacuated out into the surrounding area and were hessitant to go back inside after the all clear was given. To say the least it was an interesting day. And kinda funny how it turned an moslty uneventful day for most, into a talking matter for the next several days. One person I know even contacted his father after several years of not talking to him just to make sure he was ok.
