OMG...It was a mild earthquake, but we sure did feel it and the whole house was shaking!!! We've never felt one before anywhere!!! It took awhile for my heart to calm down, very scary!!! I would never want to be in one any stronger than that!!! I can't wait to hear the buzz about it in church tomorrow morning!!! Scary and exciting at the same time..Weird!!!

Have any of you ever been in one?? I hope I never am again!!!

I know it's common to have them in parts of CA, but we've never had one before here smack dab in the middle of the country!!! Whoa...Twilight zone stuff!!!

Well not only in Calif ...all over Pacific rim zones .
Yes it is rare for your place.
So is it better to have tornadoes ?

Comparing earthquakes, tornados and hurricanes...they are all equally destructive depending on what degree they are.
