We get them, they're just not as high of a magnitude as the ones back in the day. We're bound to have a big one sometime soon, though. Or at least that's what they say.

I felt it. I thought I was hallucinating or something but then I asked the people around me and they said they felt it too. It was weird. I've never experienced one like that. Most of them I've felt, I didn't because I was sleeping and then when I woke up everyone was talking about it.



I wouldn't live in an area where disasters are just waiting to happen, you just never know


Disaster happens everywhere in the US. California has the quakes, the southwest has drought, the southeast and east coast has huricanes, the north gets blizzards, while the midwest gets tornadoes. I follow the good weather. :mrgreen:



Australia is pretty good with weather as not much happens, usually just raining in Winter and hot in summer. Bush fires do happen but they are far from where I live usually and controlled rather fast

I'd say Hawaii has the best weather. If you don't believe so then I'd say maybe Italy or France if not Hawaii.

You've got to come to Perth, been said by tourists to have the best weather and beaches anywhere :wink:

i heard on the radio that scientists were saying that the next earthquake can happen in a couple more days and could be as strong as the one in 89. living by the hayward fault i dunno how to feel...during 89 i was living in newark and sleeping during the quake so i didnt really remember it. i was also epileptic back then so chances are i couldve had a mild seizure during the quake and wouldnt have felt it anyway

Yeah, not trying to scare anybody, but they were saying that this earthquake was just the beginning. They said that we are 50% more likely to get another big earthquake within two weeks. Kind of a scary thought. :|

Just gotta be prepared for it. I'm down in San Jose and even if I may not feel it, I'll have supplies ready for it. It's always important to store bottled water and canned goods when these things are prone to happening. Hopefully it's not happening next Thursday, though. I'm going to ROARacle Arena to watch the Dubs play the Mavs.

Yep. That's what usually happens. They start with minor ones until the big one comes. After that, there are a few minor ones again for a few more days til everything comes back to normal.

Of course, it can also be an isolated one, but there's always a risk.

According to the Syracuse University, Las Palmas (in the Canary Islands) has the best weather in the whole world, with an average of 72 degrees (Fahrenheit, around 22º Celsius) for the whole year.

Actually, I might be a bit biased, as it seems like I'll move there at some point next year. :wink:

Never been there, though many Australians have and most say it is nice but people there are poor. You go over there and you live like a king for the time you are there
