A small earthquake.

I was answering my notifications just now when the house gave the known sound of an earthquake. You see, when there´s an earthquake, not only does the earth tremble, but every manmade thing moves and gives out different sounds. The first thing I do is to turn my eyes to the lamp in the ceiling. There you can see it move. Then there are some beams that crack and light material that sounds. The concrete and the brick go along with the earth and have their own way of moving. I don´t like quakes, not even small ones. So I like to run to the garden where nothing will fall over my head. Do you have earthquakes where you live? What do you think of them?

I remember an earthquake a long time ago while we are sleeping. We are in the second floor I feel the ground shaking like the floor is so soft it's shaking. I was so nervous at that time. I feel the house will collapse. What intensity is the earthquake in your place?
Yes, I personally experienced when when the earthquake of 6.7 intensity struck within out island. I felt the sofa that I was sitting was moving to and fro and I felt. I ran quickly from my office. I saw several of our our kid school pupils were running, coming out from their classrooms, crying and calling out their mothers. I also saw standing three coconut trees swaying to and fro.

I was in many small quakes when I lived in California, but did not live there when they had bigger ones. It is predicted that a major quake will occur off the Oregon coast sometime that will be very destructive for the state.

I am lucky that here it is very stable and no earthquakes. When we travelled to Japan in summer vacation this year, we experienced the earthquake there. I was a little in a panic because it was a little strong. I didn't escape from the hotel since it was very late and I was very sleepy Fortunately nothing worse happened after that.

I have have never been in an earthquake. It would be scary to me since I am not in an area that gets earthquakes. It would scare the crap out of me when everything is shaking and falling. All I get are tornadoes which never seen one yet in my life tone and snow storms
