    ALERT: "VA QUAKE BREAKING NEWS!

    The USGS has determined that the epicenter of the VA earthquake was in a graveyard just outside of DC. The cause appears to be all of our Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves." ..

    I was in the 94 Northirdge quake. Brutal. Everything off every shelf, cupboard and cabinet with doors was all over the floor. 300 feet of blockwall leveled. Just up the street and apartment building lost it's first two floors. Down the road there we propane tanks blasting off left and right at mobile home park. The whole park went up in flames. Telephone poles, block walls and debrise on the street, broken gas and water lines everywhere. It fealt like the apocalypse.

    We don't get the opportunity to experience many EQs in the southeast (I didn't feel the most recent one). The only real disasters I've been through is tornadoes, which come like rain in the summer time. Recently road through an EF4, but I still think I'd probably flip my pancakes if I ever experienced a real earthquake. :p

    About 10-15 years ago I was staying in northern Italy on the mountains, and an earthquake hit hard, I can't remember the magnititude of the actualy earthquake, but it lasted over 20 seconds, but it didnt seem like it.

    There were tremors all through the night, and the next day we travelled to the nearest town which was almost on the epicentre and it was quite bad.

    Living in California we have had our share for sure. I really remember 89 when Al Michaels was getting ready to call the World Series game and the last thing I remember hearing was "Oh my god, it's an earthquake..." then everything went dead and started shaking...Scary stuff especially when I felt like I was on top of it and we lived 90 minutes away from it...
