As my title says, 7.0 http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/eek.gif . Wow, it was da** scarey, but no one got hurt(that I know of). It was centered 30 miles Southwest of us here, and had a depth of 32 miles below the surface. It was one of the scariest things I went through. It was a very violent shaking. Just hope that no one anywhere was hurt.

Phew, Good thing that you are alright! Wouldn't like to see fellow forum members hurt. You know, I once slept through an earthquake. It was only 3.0 or even less though.

Yeah, this one was big rolling and shaking. I could barley balance even squating under the kitchen table. Oh yeah, they now say it was a 6.8 magnitude.

I know, but when it comes to that, I live in just about the safest place on earth, we life several hunderds of kilometers away from the nearest fault, and luckily, the weather conditions in Belgium make sure that we rarely get winds over a 100km/h so we're nice and safe from nature http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif. Altough you never can be sure.

I saw that on the news.. that sucks. Must be scary having everything shake. Here in Iowa the worst we usually get is flooding and hot/cold extremes (winters that never end for example.. ahem!). ; p

At least nobody got killed (last I checked)...

Day after an ice storm it's 55 here in West Texas. Good news is it's flat, so when it floods, idiots die. Evolution works.
