We had a couple small ones in the past couple years down here in Florida. I live inland about 35 miles and didn't feel anything.
Sure does seem like we've had a lot here lately. Makes you wonder. Could this big blue ball fall apart?
We have several things now way over due here in the States.
Kalifornia is just waiting, as is Missouri. And let's not forget Yellowstone and a couple of the big pimples up there in Oregon and Washington State.
The way my luck goes, with the economy and oil spill, we would get a really big OMG earthquake somewhere.
Let's pray for it not to happen.
Wow Joe, I'm about the same distance from you to the quake center and other than the noise and a slight shaking nothing really happened.
In 2002 we had one the same size at 5.1 about 10-12 miles away and that one toppled chimneys and cracked brick and stone walls. It was enough that FEMA set up a claims center in the area. We had aftershocks for a few days afterwards.
