SPOKANE. Aug. 22. (.V)
Inland Empire lakes "rolled and
bubbled" during last night's earth
quake, witnesses said today.
Bea lake, north of Nelport near
the Idaho slate line, "started rock
ing violently," Mrs. William Wil
son said. The resort owner's wife
said the shock "rocked all our
boats loose from our docks and
took thn out on the water.
"When we went out to get them
we could hardly row because of
the pull of the water. We pulled
them high up on the beach where
we thought they would be safe.
Then the lake surface suddenly
rose what seemed to he three or
four feet and took all our boats
At Clear lake, northwest of
Cheney, Mrs. G. C. Hollomon said
a "young tidal wave" left dozens
of fish on the shore.
"One big wave came In about
six feet and then the whole shore
line receded," she said. "It looked
as though somebody had pullod a
plug out of the lake bottom and
the water was running out.
"After that a huge wave came
In and washed way up on the
shore, and the lake appeared to
rise six or eight Inches.
"That wave threw lots of small
bass up on the shore. I threw
about three dozen back Into the
lake myself and my husband
threw lots more."
