    I'm not a Cali boy: but, lived in L.A. for a few years. Being from the South, I didn't know what an earthquake was. I know all about a tornado. Back to earthquakes. The biggest one I experienced was a 4.5 and let me tell you it was spooky. The floor went in a circular motion and I felt like I was going to piss my pants. There's nothing like doing the Twist while standing still !!!

    We have had some up north here. One happened just outside and north of Montreal and we felt it here in Kitchener. That was in 1989. The year we got married.

    The wife's maid of honour was living in a high rise. Well ok 12 floors. She felt it up there. I was driving at the time so I didn't notice it at all.

    I'll have to ask my cousin Ed if he felt it as he lives in Blythewood. My son lives a couple of blocks from S. Carolinas new baseball stadium and called us a few minutes after it happened and he could feel it. My college son in Clemson did not feel a thing...I cant imagine why not???:rolleyes:

    Chevy, the East coast is on a large rock and is connected a bit better than other parts of the country so the smaller quakes can be felt a long ways off because we share the same piece of rock.

    Wow, it rattled my windows and was very loud. I thought a chopper was crashing into our house. Lasted for 10 seconds. It scared me.

    Maybe is was a coordinated new helo-drone test attack on the south? Kind of sounded similar to that here.
