phlogistician, I've experienced one in the UK. Yes you heard right, in the UK. At first I thought it was some heavy vehicle coming down the road, as I felt the room vibrate slightely. Then the vibration became more intense, like living near train lines. Then it became more intense, lasting a little longer than it should if it were vehicles. Then the whole house started to shake at which time I was quite scared and concerned for my family. Then it died out. Made me realise how fickle life is, and how we really have no control over it. You mean I have cred? WOW! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! No one is denying plate tectonics, and I'm not saying God is directly responsible for each and ever earthquake. But you DO NOT know if God or gods is/are responsible, that's my point. jan.
