Were you frightened the first time you experience an earthquake?

i didn't realize it was an earthquake (its epicentre was some distance from where i live). it was late at night and i couldn't sleep, and i thought i was having a dizzy spell and that was why the house seemed to be shaking. after a few minutes the feeling passed. funny next morning when i heard on the news that i was actually an earthquake.

Yes, I was little and my mom said I wouldn't go back in my grandma's bedroom. I said mommy the ground moved back and forth, it was scary and grandma's room shook really bad. It took me sometime before I could gain the courage and venture into her bedroom again.

I was a little afraid, but I haven't felt it a lot, I was at home too.

I've never experienced an earthquake, I've experienced a tornado and that was enough for me.

Not really. I've only experienced one small one. I'm more frightened of the hurricanes that frequently make their way across my state.

I was both scared and amazed. I live in California and was in San Francisco when a big quake hit in 1986. I was at home with my parents and a friend. When the quake hit I was in the kitchen with my friend and my dad caming running in, scouped us up and ran out the kithen door. I don't remember the shaking, all I remember seeing is the 2 mountain peeks behind my house switching heights. it looked like one side would move higher than the other and then it would swith. I don't know if that can really happend but that is what my eyes saw. It was amazenly crazy.
