Woodlawn resident Ruth Goode was walking home when she felt the tremor. She thought it was an explosion. “I could feel it, the way it happened so suddenly I thought it was an explosion,” said Goode.
“And then as I started talking to people they said ‘no, that was a tremor, it was like an earthquake.’” Goode said she’s thankful the tremors weren’t something worse. “It could’ve been worse, it really could’ve been,” said Goode. “But it wasn’t, so I thank god for that.” READ MORE
