7.1!?

I'm glad that you're not hurt, Elizabeth. You or Mark. *hugs again*

Last week in my Geography class, we were getting ready for a test and we discussed tectonic plates and the map locations... not a pretty site. Lots of'em. 

Earthquakes are part of nature, but have records of deep deals of trouble...

I had one here, but it was mostly felt in Toronto back in June of this year.

I was doing my math exam, and I thought it was the guy behind me kicking me. When it happened again, everyone felt it. But again, it wasn't felt much everywhere I lived. My school is not 5 minutes from my grandmother's house and she didn't feel anything

thanks Allie - yeah NZ is on top of 2 plates in the pacific ring of fire so prone to earthquakes- nature isn't stopping us wanting to live here tho!

Hey Raquel at least you were alright fairly small one in comparison to here!!

I don't recall the scale but it was quite high.  It was actually the worst quake we've had in 25 years.  We got them every few years or so.  I believe some poor people did die from trees collapsing on them.

We've had many earthquakes in the area where I live, but as far as I can remember non of them were higher than 6.

Well... I have never felt scared although it is not a very joyful experience...
You really don't get used to them. I have a friend from Peru and there they have one almost every day...

I'm with you there, I didn't really feel scared.  It sounds stupid, but I had seen them in movies all my life so it seemed "normal",a nd I just dealt with it.  We'd had a ew before then so...

Will be interesting to see how I react with earthquakes in the future esp if planning on eventually living here in nz - will I get used to them and not be scared anymore or will I always get scared - who knows
