Half won't have a clue to what you're talking about. That's about it.

There are those rare occasions when actual damage or casualties occur, but they are far in between. When I think of the constant flooding, hurricanes, and tornadoes everywhere else, I'm not worried about earthquakes.

However, it you want to talk about fires, that's another story.
when I first moved here almost 15 years ago I was so freaked out about them....and when I experienced my first one I was freaked for all of about a minute.

I have felt like three in the last month in OC ... Hell 2 of those happened at work during conference calls and the reactions were "earthquake...., ok moving along, so...."

Grew up in Houston. I fear the destruction of hurricanes, tornadoes and fires much more .
