FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tornado Benefit @ The Inlet


Dancing with Michael Jackson proved to be a fan favorite as club-goers joined the History group dancers

   
    On May 19th and the 20th, Strupples Davidov watched as the state she lives in was torn apart by tornadoes. One of the May 19 storms passed within sight of her home, but it was the next day's destruction that shook her to the core.

    She is safe and still has a home and family. But she watched in horror as the destruction in nearby Moore, Oklahoma, was revealed on television. Homes, businesses and schools were leveled by nature's wrath.  

    "As a teacher, mother, and just as a human being, it has ripped my heart out," she said "The more I saw, the more it affected me until I couldn't watch any more and had to shut the TV off. I logged into Second Life to try and get those images out of my head, but they wouldn't go."

    Watching the television made her feel helpless. But as co-owner of The Inlet, Strupples began to think maybe there was something she could do, after all. "The only way I could think of was holding a music marathon in Second Life. We can make a difference. We can donate to the Red Cross to help them in their aid to Tornado victims."

BREAKING NEWS: August 23, 2011- A 5.9 Earthquake shakes the Eastcoast around 2:30 pm est today. It’s Epicenter was in Richmond, Virginia. Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

* This Earthquake was downgraded to 5.8 at 4:15pm EST August 23, 2011
While working on SLE news propped up in my bed, I felt the entire room shake, at first I thought it was one of my kids playing a prank on me like they do, because my bed literally began to shake as if someone grabbed my bedpost and was shaking it. This continued for a good 5-10 seconds, I abruptly got up to look for the source pulling the prank and realized it wasn’t just my bed moving but everything, including  the heavy  stained glass light fixture in my foyer. I called to my daughter, who was watching television and asked her if she felt it and within a few minutes news started to flood my iphone from family and friends including all of the news sources I have on push notice.

With natural disasters seeming to come more frequently, I never would have thought an earthquake would hit this close to home. I live in a pretty safe place in Pennsylvania and the most I have ever felt was weakened hurricane winds and rain coming from the Atlantic, a few feet of snow, some flooding in the lower regions and tornado warnings, but nothing like this!

Only in the past five years have I seen an increase in the strength of these natural disasters and can now add possible earthquakes to the list.

As I write this, peeps in Washington DC and the Pentagon are evacuating for safety. Here in the northeast part of Pa, there doesn’t seem to be any damage, I am safe and my home is intact.

  I hope that those directly affected by this event are now safe and for those around the world just hearing the news, here is the latest developments from where I am.

What caused this earthquake in Virginia?
