A Kennewick woman was in Christchurch, New Zealand, when the 6.3 earthquake hit.
Holly Baynes says she was napping when she was shaken awake and ran outside.
KAPP reports the 22-year-old, who is finishing a study-abroad program, is uninjured. She lost her water supply but the electricity stayed on, allowing her to keep in touch with her family.
Her stepfather, Richland Fire Chief Grant Baynes, was born in Christchurch.
