Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Graduated from Calvin College in ’06. Started at Townsquare Media as intern several years ago and have loved serving in Production, Promotions, and currently, on-air.  Big fan of crime TV, my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching , and my dear dear family.

West Michigan Earthquake Strikes During Pastor’s Nepal Relief Sermon

Where were you around 12:25p.m. Saturday? Did you feel a weird rumbling/ quaking?

I've heard some interesting tales of what people thought it was-- a car accident, odd thunder on an otherwise gorgeous and sunny day, houseguests wrestling in another room (this comes from my little brother who's 24, for which that would be a totally normal thing).

Turns out, it was an actual earthquake here in West Michigan.

And that moment was caught on tape at a church in Paw Paw, where a pastor was giving a sermon on donating to the Nepal earthquake relief fund.
