Magnitude 3.9 earthquake hits communities near Mt. Hood
GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. (AP) — People in communities near Mt. Hood reported feeling a moderate earthquake Saturday night, the Oregoniann/Oregonlive.com reported.
The magnitude 3.9 earthquake hit less than four miles northeast of Government Camp, just after 8:50 p.m.
Andy Diaz was working at the Charlie’s Mountain View restaurant when he felt the shaking.
Another co-worker, Valerie Tergerson, was taking beer orders for a table of six when she heard the wood in the building creak.
“Then I kind of thought, maybe this was all in my head?” Tergerson said about half an hour after the quake.
Soon after, a table with regular customers told Tergerson they also felt a shake, and another co-worker called Diaz on the phone to say the same.
“He confirmed that I’m not crazy,” Diaz said of his friend.
