    I dont think I could take that..
    maybe if you live there your whole life, you just learn to accept it..
    but it would make me too nervous..

    here in Western NY, our only major natural disasters are a good ice storm or serious blizzard once or twice a decade..taking out all the power lines for a few days.

    no earthquakes
    no tornados
    no hurricanes
    no floods
    no fires

    I'll take the snow!

    stay safe Californians!

    Kinda scary, I was fairly close to the epicenter, my house is even closer to it. Pretty violent shaking, but didn't last long. Watching the news, looks like the earthquake didn't do much damage at all. Must of been great fun for all that have never experienced one.

    They may have the earthquakes but we have to deal with the tsunami that's going to come at us after that island in the Canary Islands collapses haha. Also we do have occasional hurricanes don't forget about that!

    Haven't ever experienced an earthquake personally; not too sure I'm that eager to.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Yeah, the news kept going on about all this earthquake stuff, and then a caller says, "Umm, there really was no damage."
    I regret little to nothing!

    I was in a plant nursery. The entrance is a big sliding garage door and it was held open. I saw the whole structure shake (the nursery is wooden) and I thought that someone was having a hard time closing the garage door down.

    I come in and see a bunch of old ladies huddle under the door way (Theyw ere so cute, lol)

    well, some vases broke, I saw a few bottles break open and spill liquid and shelves fell over but that was it.

    yeah ive been feeling quite a few small ones here in washington...kinda bugging me, anticipating a rather large one...you know?
    i lived in Florida for 14 years, i am no stranger to hurricanes and tornadoes or any of that, however...
    i was here in for the 6.8 or w.e earthquake back a few years ago, scared the living hell out of me, more so than tornadoes and hurricanes ever have

    I was home sick watching CNN when it came on the news. Got downgraded to 5.4 but that's still some shaking. We had a 4.3 or something like that a couple of years ago. It was cool! That's the strongest one I've ever felt. There was the first rumble...I thought it was a truck going by...then the second wobble which you KNEW was an earthquake...you could feel the entire building shaking. Thankfully there was little damage in the area. The epicenter was 26 miles away. I love natural events like that but obviously I would never want people hurt or damage.

    Glad to know all the Cali's are fine. I thought about y'all.
