    I've always wanted to be in an earthquake, or any natural disaster. Sick I know but I am drawn to it. Tsunamis, hurricanes. Being a storm chaser is my dream job.

    Most are like falling stars, by the time you realize you are in one, it's about 3/4 over.

    I've done some storm chasing in my time. About 90% of tornado chasing is boring-ass driving looking around to be in the exact right spot and about 90% of the time no tornado happens.

    But every once in a while.... :eek:

    I like storms too. I think next time a Hurricane passes by I'll get a room on the ocean in A.C.

    I'm more into hurricanes. For tornados I would have to hang out in those states we do not speak of...

    sounds like a great idea, but aren't you moving to florida? You will have front row seats to hurricane season.

    The West Coast is overdue for a big quake. Increasing seismic activity usually precludes a big quake.

    Mandee,
    I hope you and those you love are safe and well.
    My heart and best wishes go out to those who have lost loved ones and homes in the quakes.
    Hugs,
    Dragonfly

    When I lived in Oklahoma, I must have been a tornado magnet. Especially for the F5's.
    Now that I live close to the Gulf coast in Texas, the tornadoes are the size of Georgia!! (A.K.A. hurricanes)

    Rolling quakes can be fun but, shakers are hell

    I'm up in the northeast (grew up in New England) and this rarely happens to us up here. I can remember being a little guy, living in Connecticut, and we had a couple of minor tremors. It was kinda surreal, actually, the room just shook very briefly for about 15 seconds, then it passed. Of course my Mom freaked out and grabbed my little brother, and I just sat there, speechless. Of course, we get the occasional hurricane, but even those are few and far between. more often than not, it's just the remnants.

    Thank you, everyone for your concern. This wasn't close to where I am, thank goodness, and I couldn't feel anything. I just thought it was interesting since there has been a lot of talk of earthquakes going around, and then this one happend! It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few days. I live in Yerington(southeast of Reno), and Wells(near Elko) is quite a few hours Northeast of me.
