Do You Remember The 2011 Earthquake?
Share your memories of one of Potomac's more shocking experiences.
One year ago today, Potomac and the rest of the DMV experienced one of the biggest shocks in recent history: An earthquake that sent thousands of people running for cover and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
For my part, the date also marks my one-year anniversary with Patch. I remember sitting in Potomac Place Shopping Center on my first day of work in Montgomery County when the earthquake hit. I didn’t even know the numbers for Montgomery County’s emergency services yet.
What are your memories of the quake?
