Living in Southern California, I very clearly remember the Northridge quake. I was a teenager and it was terrifying!
The 87' Whittier quake was the first significant quake I remember feeling. I was about 10 at the time. That one scared me and I have been afraid of quakes since. The Northridge just added on to my continued fear.
I'm shocked that they listed the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake in Alaska, that killed 143 people or more with a magnitude of beetween 9.2 to 9.6, depending on what source you believe in because they changed the magnitude several times now, and reached all over Alaska and was felt later in parts of Canada and parts in Lower 48 like California.
The biggest earthquake I've ever been in had a magnitude of 7.8 in the Interior of Alaska. The earthquake destroyed about 200 miles of highway, and caused damages to homes and buisness's.
the 2001 nisqually quake will stay with me forever! my 1st and hopefully last big quake. It seemed to just roll on and on it lasted for what seemed forever! I was living in a old 1930's house at the time everything came off the walls! broken glass everywhere! as i ran screaming to the kitchen to get under the table i was being hit by stuff falling. afterwards we had cracks in the walls, floors and even a huge one that went from the driveway into the garage! the worst part was all communications were down after the quake. we had no power ,cell or home phone so for a while we had no idea how bad it really was. I pray the "big one" never hits!
Why, when one lives in California, does one not get quake insurance?
Looks a lot like Hiroshima and Nagasaki---- but with less radiation, that was spread all over the globe from there, and has caused immeasurable cancer all over the globe-- but the Brawnies continue every day about Nuking the Muslims and others----Why is that relevant--that was not caused by the natural shakings--.--I was in SFO in 89 and that was a wake up call.--I could not believe the bridges and houses falling down, but nothing compared to the killings of 240,000 Japanese and later loosing over 1/2 million from cancer. This week was just the anniversary of that enormous USA killing again.--But we have now caused about the same killing in Iraq, and so far we have not used "Nuke-liar"--(Remember he could not say it, he was apparently saying it all the time correctly about nuclear weapons in Iraq).
DO NOT TRY THIS ON CHINA!, because then there will be no one left here to bury all 317,000,000 bodies here.
