Portland, Ore. — Vacationers returned home to Portland after having a memorable weekend in California.
Eva Guggemos was grabbing her bags with her son when KXL talked to her. She said the quake woke her up from a dream. As soon as she realized what was happening it was over.
“Where I live up here in Oregon I live next to a train track. So it actually felt just like the train going by my house. I was kind of disoriented for a little bit thinking is that the train. Then I realized it was an earthquake and I woke up. And all the dogs in the neighborhood were barking.”
She said they were about 25 miles from the epicenter. It was her sons first experience with an earthquake but he wasn’t freaked out. He actually slept through the whole thing.
