Manic Monday - Quake

MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs
Quake
Thankfully I've never been in an Earth Quake myself, but I have seen the effects of such terrible events and I am thankful that even though I live on the New Madrid Fault that we've not had any serious quakes in my life time. I think that Mother Nature punishes us enough with tornadoes! We don't need Quakes on top of those!Hope you all have an Earth Quake free Manic Monday!

Been through a lot of quakes here...kind of used to them now. Don't want ANYTHING to do with tornados!

Tisha, I am lucky I live in a place where we haven't had any earthquakes either. But we can get hit by hurricanes... I live on the coast in New York. :D

We have very mild weather here, but earthquakes are just part of living in California. They are indeed very scary. I would still rather have an earthquake than a tornado though. It's a much smaller amount of time to be scared half to death. Have a great MM sweetie. :)

It's funny...I think people who live in earthquake areas are more afraid of tornadoes. And people who live in tornado areas are more afraid of earthquakes. :) Tornadoes scare the jeebers out of me!

Earthquakes can wreak havoc. The top photo, I believe, is of the Sylmar earthquake. That overpass went down twice. First in the Sylmar earthquake in 1971 and the second time during the Northridge earthquake in 1994. During the 1994 earthquake, a CHP officer was killed as this section of the freeway collapsed.

Earthquakes can be scary. It's all about knowledge and not panicking.

I lived in Florida for 32 years, where Hurricanes are common. At least the meteorologists gave us plenty of time to get the heck out of their way! I moved to Georgia 2 years ago, partly because of the recent frequency of hurricanes. I can't imagine living in an earthquake region. No, thank you!

Stine said...

I'm thankful every time we hear about hurricanes or quakes on the news that we live here, where we don't get either. Not in a big way.
I know that even with those scares, I'd have a hard time moving away from my home. So when people say:why do they keep living there??, I know why, and my heart goes out to them...

I think it all must even out somehow... tornadoes for us, quakes for them... sometimes getting the overlap is what's freaky!

I've never been in a big quake either, though we've felt tiny quakes here that were just the 'edge' of a bigger one elsewhere, lol. I've also never experienced a tornado. I think I'm quite okay with missing out on those kind of experiences. :o)
