earthquake 2010 2011 2012
I've been in a couple of tremors; very unnerving feeling. I also slept through the only earthquake I've experienced. I was really bummed out when I found out about it.
I used to live in California, so I can't tell you how many earthquakes I've had to endure. When I was living in Texas, we had one tornado that hit our next door neighbour to the right of us, jumped completely over our house and hit the neighbour to the left of us. I was a little scary, but not nearly as scary as the full gales that my 1st husband would take us into. The waves we something like 50 feet, and our sailboat would cross over the crest of the waves and slam down into the troughs. Once time I was knocked unconscious by a 50-lb tool box the slid off one of the couches in the kitchen and slammed me in the head.<br />
That man was so crazy that he took a 29-ft schooner into hurricane conditions and then turn for home. He had one shot to make it into Moss Landing, which he did... and then called me from a bar to come pick up both him and his masochistic friend. The name of the bar was "He's Not Here", and it was almost true for the both of them!
Many many tornadoes. All between 1980 and 1990, Texas Oklahoma border. Not the scariest moment of my life though. Almost became humdrum and actually slept through the tornado sirens once or twice.
Many earthquakes. The worst was the 1994 Northridge quake that struck at 4:30 am and threw us out of bed!
Hurricane(s) everyone that hit sFL between 1981 & 1997. Andrew was the worst. No, not the scariest moment.
No tornado or hurricane, but mild earthquakes. Scarier though was the Columbus day storm of 1962 which had winds that exceeded hurricane strength. Our neighbor's barn was knocked down like it had been built of dominoes.
I have been through 2 hurricanes on the east coast, but they were tame and fascinating. It was an adventure. I have seen tornadoes in Oklahoma and France, but again, they were fascinating and thrilling.
Earthquake, Maryland, 2012. It was awesome!
Tornado, Texas, 1986. Scariest moment for sure.
