1. Have you ever experienced an earthquake?

2. Were you frightened the first time you experience an earthquake?

3. Is your home built to withstand earthquakes?

4. Where in your house would you hide if there were an earthquake?

1. I guess :unsure: I really didn't feel it, but I saw the door shaking and the only reason I noticed it, the door had a large mirror attached to it.

2. :confused: Nope, I didn't know what was happening and it only lasted a few seconds, I didn't have time to get scared.

3. Probably not, I don't live in a earthquake prone area. :)

4. I've heard, stand under a door frame hopefully on the load-baring wall of the house. But, I'd probably get scared and go running outside away from any structure.

Only a tremor from one that came all the way from Canada.
2. Were you frightened the first time you experience an earthquake?
Happened too quickly and only lasted a few seconds for me to get scared.
3. Is your home built to withstand earthquakes?
Probably not as we don't get earthquakes here.
4. Where in your house would you hide if there were an earthquake?
I would just put all my "zoo crew babies" in a bedroom and ride it out with them. :unsure:

We've had tiny ones according to local friends, I saw the meme of a fallen over lawn chair and "NEVER FORGET".

1. Yes a few of them. Salt Lake City UT just had a 5.7 yesterday.
2. Yes the first time was scary. I was about 17 years old and husband and I were living on our own for the first time. Other times I just road it out.
3. Yes
4. Depends on where I am in the house. But first place would be under the very big sturdy desk.
