Yes it has. Plus the recent tsunami destroyed many docks and damaged boats. Orion was stuck under her dock and got her stanchions bent like pretzels. Otherwise came through intact.
The earthquake came when I had just got on a plane to the mainland.
Husband had only enough time to throw the cats in the car, grab the important papers and put more lines on. We were fortunate that we had as little damage as we did. Less than $5,000.
It will be years before the docks are repaired.
