I live in southern California (Los Angeles) but was in Arizona and Nevada during the earthquakes. I didn't feel the first one while in AZ, but I felt another one while in the southern tip of Nevada. I was on the 18th floor of a hotel when we felt the shaking and rolling and saw the curtains swaying back and forth. It was pretty scary!

really i thought cats and dogs were super sensitive to quakes. by the time our quakes happened we had given our cats away before the kids were born. i often wondered how they would have reacted

I bet it was when you were that high up. While earthquake magnitude always matters of course, generally the higher you are the more you feel them. I have lived in a one story house, a three story condo and now in a two story house, all in Orange County, Ca. My husband and I felt the first couple (at home) and then we were traveling in Nevada during the other larger one and felt that as well.

I still think it weird that I spent 3 months in Japan and didn't feel a single earthquake, but there have been three or four mini ones back home where my parents live here in the UK...

I'm quite happy not to live in an earthquake centre though. I'm glad you guys who experienced it are all safe.

thats weird ...uk having earthquakes. is that a new thing ?  or just a one in a blue moon thing.  there are so many things the uk has and we dont and vise versa, though in Auckland earthquakes are very rare and down in christchurch NZ, little shakes was the normal thing growing up down there.
anyways i still till this day shed a tear for the big one that hit Japan in 2011 and they were helping us just one month before hand with ours

He actually threw a fit before it happened. Yowling and fussing at me. But when the actual earthquake hit he was on the balcony with my husband and just loaded in a chair and trotted back in after it stopped.

We have had earthquakes in Sweden, I think I've experienced three or four during my life. It's definitly a once in a blue moon but they do happen and usually we think it's an exotic thing and get excited, it's always a feeling of 'was it real' until authorities give confirmation. But then you see what happens elsewhere and the damage they do on people and you just realise that we're lucky to only get tiny ones. The one in Japan and NZ was just horrible to see and read about. The largest one we've had was a four if I remember correctly, I remember a glass vase in a shelf was about to hit the floor but mom was fast to grab it.

I've been thinking of you. I loathe earthquakes, but like Shabby, I live way too close to them!
