Earthquakes, Tornados, Hurricans, Floods, Fires, or anything else. WHICH is the worst do you think? Which is the best of those with warnings or type of distruction? I come from California, we mostly just get earthquakes. Which dont happen that often. I havent seen one in a few years *knock on wood* But we are thinking about moving to Tennessee which gets TORANDOS. Its kinda freaky. I dont know how often they get them, do you? How do you deal with things like keeping your pets safe if you arent at home? What about you? Whats the worst kind do you think? I have only had earthquakes. I think floods or tornados personally would be the worst. The best? I truly think earthquakes! Sure they happen, you get shaken up for days. But at least so far the ones I've lived through werent that bad, nothing bad happened, house didnt crash, none of my loved ones died. I guess its different cause BAD ones DO happen for sure! So I'd love to hear your thoughts. The best, the worst, and those you've lived through. :)) thank ya!

I've endured tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes (I was in the San Fran area in '89). I think of those 3 the worst was the earthquakes. When there are tornadoes and hurricanes you know they're coming. You might not know exactly where a tornado is going to hit, but you know you're on alert for them and you can prepare. Quakes... there's no warning for those. They just happen.

I haven't seen nor lived thru an earthquake nor do I want to. I am thankful I survive 3 hurricanes back in 2004. I lost my house and everything in it and just an hour after Charley struck 2 tornado's followed which took my car... Thank God I had money in my Paypal account from 12 Daily Pro to rent an apartment and buy all new furniture and clothes. Charley, Ivan and Jeanne did a lot of damage in the area where I lived. It wasn't the first time I survived a hurricane. It's something we learn to live with in Florida. My daughter lives in Nashville, Tenn. and they have never experienced any disasters, Thank God. BTW...We have a lot of tornados too. Makes you wonder why people like living in Florida.

To me, I believe is the Pacific Asia, India Earthquake that caused the tsunami which killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people. I saw a documentary of what happened to the people, with waves going as high as 12 metres, or 6 stories, it is scary to even mention it, much forth experience it. The tragic of such natural disaster causes heavy trauma to those who experiences it, not only lives are lost, homes are destroyed, ecnomy affected, people's mind crippled with fear of the next wave coming. This is indeed a sign of end the the days of earth, I believe there will be worst natural disasters coming forth in this end days. Mother nature is striking back.
