Unless it is MT Rainier?

Five towns near the epicenter are listed below,
but curiously, this quake is located in the \"armpit\"
of MT Rainier. Curiously, the town of Orting (who\'ve
been having evacuation exercises for the past year in
preparation of a Lahar following an eruption of MT
Rainier, and whose much touted \"Alert System\" was disabled
two days ago [supposedly] by vandals according to local news)
is also NOT listed below.

Apparently, even those who have prepared to evacuate will not
be warned. Many of us have known the \"game plan.\" If, indeed,
there any still in doubt and awaiting \"official\" release of
pertinent information, this should speak volumes.
My heart goes out to all.
