  1. There were some seismic waves going off in my bed this morning. Did you feel it over there where you are?

    1. I don't think the duration was long enough to detect.

    1. June I am laughing because that's my line but I did read a story today that some technology was used to cause it, can't remember if they blamed Americans or Russians. ps That was my Mom's name.

  7. Gravity waves (earth movement) travel approximately 8 miles/second. I've used that very useful info before.
    I was on the top floor of the Old National Bank (14 stories) when I was talking to a customer in Yakima, and he asked me, "Did you feel THAT??" I asked, "What?" "Earthquake!", he said. I hung up almost immediately and called the guys in the basement to let 'em know their earthquake alarm was going to be sounding off in the next 15 seconds, and as I was getting through to their heads what was going to happen.. it set off. They were amazed until I told them how they knew. Heh. Shut up, sit down, and fasten our seat belts!

    The building swayed slowly about 2 foot in each direction, lemme tell ya it was an odd feeling. I wasn't worried, this building can withstand a 6.6 to 7 on the MMI scale. Freaky nontheless.

    1. Many years ago, I was working for EDS up on the 6th floor of an 8 story office tower. It was just outside of Detroit, Michigan, not a place usually associated with earthquakes. It was a Friday afternoon and lots of people were wondering around socializing. Well, there was a bit of noticeable vibration... I thought it was just from all the movement in the building, or maybe a bunch of semis passing on nearby I-75... then I realized it was an earthquake. The local tv news took advantage of it to interview lots of people who had pictures fall or their collector Elvis plates break. A strange experience,

  8. I guess I'm not as hard hearted as I sometimes think I am. Here's a pic of a father holding his crushed daughters hand. Brought tears.
