Even almost 5 years later I have feelings of panic when the ground shakes. I don’t live in a seismic zone so it can be anything from a truck rumbling by to even an imagined movement of the pedestrian bridge at the mall. I can only imagine that it is even more horrible for people who live through subsequent earthquakes year after year. Chile had another one yesterday and the people there not only had to deal with the immediate panic, but also had to remember the 2010 8.8 disaster.
If you’ve been through an earthquake, tornado, hurricane, flood and would like to share your experiences please post a comment.
