I eagerly awaited the paper this morning so I could read more about the 2.6 earthquake that hit Sunday evening, Nov. 24.
I was watching the news and looking out at the increasingly crazy weather, when something slammed against my house.
It was an earthquake centered near Maxwelton and French roads, I believe.
I was anxious to read and find out more about it (actually, there was a second 1.8 earthquake after the first one). But nary a mention in the Wednesday, Nov. 27, newspaper three days after the quake hit.
Isn’t this the type of news we should expect to read about in the South Whidbey Record? It’s too small fry for the Seattle Times these days, but should be in our local paper.
Editor’s note: The story about the earthquakes was published online immediately in The Record. Because of the holiday deadlines, editions of the print newspapers were completed days early so it wasn’t physically possible to get the story into the papers. Included with all newspaper subscriptions is full access to the newspaper’s website, www.southwhidbeyrecord.com
