At 10:55 A.M. a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the Seattle area, centered 11 miles Northeast of Olympia at the apex of Nisqually Valley Delta and Puget Sound.

Damage is reported as extensive and at least 12 are hospitalized.

Western Washington has been placed under a state of emergency.

Police and fire resources are strained.

Sea-Tac Airport is closed until further notice, and highway traffic in and out of the area is limited.

Telephone outages are widespread, with cell capabilities being completely overwhelmed, and hard-wire telephone service being heavily strained.

Many downtown buildings have sustained structural damage, and at least two search and rescue operations were underway inside collapsed buildings at press time.

The Pioneer Square area of Seattle seems to have sustained the worst damage, being home to most of the area's oldest buildings.
