At the Star of the Sea Parish Center at about 7:12 the building shook and there was a rumbling sound. I suspected an earthquake.

We're strong. We can rebuild. Of course, we're going to need massive amounts of Federal aid.

I thought I felt the whole house shake but my husband convinced me it was the spin cycle of the washer in the basement :)
