An earthquake, a bridge and an iron worker
While the tremors from yesterday's earthquake unsettled many people in the Hudson Valley, one iron worker had a unique and tenuous perspective: he was under the Tappan Zee Bridge.
Steve Miller says he was standing on a huge piece of moving iron about 150 feet above the Hudson River when the magnitude 5.8 quake that originated in Virginia rattled the area.
"I'm thinking about the traffic up on the bridge, and I was wondering if possibly something happened up there to cause it to move," Miller says.
The Central Valley man kept working, only to learn later after he got off the bridge that there had been an earthquake. Miller says he's just grateful he didn't get hurt. Orange County residents shaken up by quakeMagnitude 5.8 earthquake rattles Westchester
