At 10:54AM on February 28, 2001 an earthquake of magnitude 6.8 hit the Seattle, WA area.  Although damage in the area was limited, the overall shaking was pretty good.  By now everyone has probably seen a video or two of swinging light fixtures or moving objects, but seldom do you ever see a video that captures the "real feel" of an earthquake.  I happened to receive a video from a lab at Microsoft that gives you a true sense of the sights and sounds of the quake.

If you have a high speed link to the Internet then click here to watch.  If you have a slower connection to the Internet then right click here and select "Save Target As..." to save the movie to your local hard drive and watch it from there.  The file may take a while to download, but it's well worth the effort to watch it.
