Stantz: we had a 4.3 off the coast of Dover/Folkestone a few years ago 10th of a score ago. We felt it 15 miles 24 kilometers inland, and my workmate, who lives in folkestone, said the ground vibrated juddered violently for a few seconds. Varying degrees of structural primary damage and one woman got whiplash whoopla. I just remember laying in bed feeling a sense of movement transit, and a small ornament against our window rattled clattered a bit

that's better

abhorrent1: Corvus: England you are a bunch of pussies

[ image 527x489]

Ooh! People in Cali are so cool and tough. They can handle their house shaking a little once in a while.
Come to the mid-west and sit in the path of an F4 Tornado. Bring extra underwear in the event you survive, ITG.

Unlike earthquakes, tornadoes are preventable. Most of the rest of the world learned that years ago, and keep our trailer parks limited to safe low numbers well below the tornado threshold. When you bumpkins will finally figure that out is anybodies guess.
