Very well, we'll consider that a formal prediction.
If it works you'll have all seismologists jealous.

That was actually one of the more amazing things I've ever seen. Buildings, palm trees, parking lots full of cars, everything gently moving back and forth to the same rhythm.

You're only encouraging him, Al. I figured he was referring to the building.

Living in an earthquake zone and being surprised when an earthquake happens.
I wonder what's next?
Being in Las Vegas and finding gambling.
Going to the sea shore and getting hit by a wave?
Snow in the midwest during the winter?

I was on the third floor of my office building, the shaking was pretty good down here in SD.

I too lived in Northridge during that quake. Split my parents house literally in half - you could see daylight through the 2" crack in the ceiling. 10% deductible set them back 25k at the time and the repairs took forever. Fortunately we were up on a hill on top of solid rock, the houses in the valley basin got it much worse as they were on loose sand/sediment. I remember every block wall was tumbled down. My buddy in the National Guard got to stand on street corners with his rifle to "deal with" potential looters - it was a spooky site those first few hours and days.

I remember having to get water from a truck down the hill, and how excited we were when the electricity came on for a second, spluttered out, and came on again days (weeks?) after the quake. Running water was a true joy as well.

i heard one of the scientists saying this was only 1% or 10% (each point on the scale represents a huge difference in magnitude) - don't remember which of the northridge quake - either way - i can't imagine how traumatizing that would be! i was very shaken by the recent quake and many of my friends in the area too...
