Question of the Week:

Where were you during the earthquake and did you feel it happening?


“It was the anticipation of the storm and getting around after it that affected me most. I was prepared, I still have all the water and cans of tuna. I lost power for awhile but was really lucky compared to others. After the storm it was difficult because of all the detours and traffic. It was a challenge, it was scary, and it was a whole week of inconvenience.”

— Janet Hines, Old Bridge

“It was a lot of stress because my son was getting married and we were having the rehearsal dinner on Friday night. We lost power for about 24 hours and we didn’t know when the power would come on. Luckily, everything worked out fine and he was married.”

Michael Miller, Princeton

“I wasn’t affected much at all. My power or internet did not go out. I live and work in Princeton and had no problem getting to work. I was very fortunate.”

— Arti Sheth, Princeton


“I couldn’t get to Princeton for four days. My flight was pushed back. I had to stay in Sicily for an extra week before I could travel to Princeton.”

— James Rumsey-Merlan, Princeton (new student at Princeton University)

“We had two feet of water in the basement, and damage to some personal items. We lost power for two days, but for the most part we did pretty well, it wasn’t too bad.”

— Jolene Leuchten, Princeton

“We lost power for about three days, the sump pump wouldn’t work. We have had a lot to clean up from the flood.”

— Robert Montgomery, Princeton
