Be they small in the East, they come as such a surprise that they really get the attention. For many it is the first earthquake they have ever felt.

When we next visit CA, I only hope we are parked in a nice safe campground well above sea level, should the earth decide to shake in that part of the woods.

Well for one we felt it here on Cape Cod and it was like someone standing on the entry steps and jumping up and down. Shock the crap out the RV.

A 4.6 is a Big earthquake on the East coast. The ground is different and the shaking is just as bad as your 6.0's Much more rock on the east.

HAHA, I *seriously* doubt that!

"An earthquake that measures 5.0 on the Richter scale has a shaking amplitude 10 times larger and corresponds to an energy release of √1000 ≈ 31.6227 times greater than one that measures 4.0."

Richter magnitude scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NO - WAIT - WHAT? - There's more rock on the East Coast?

I gotta say there's a little thing called the Rocky Mountians or the Sierra Nevada Mountains? Not to mention the San Gorgonio, San Jacinto and Palomar Mountains...a friend of mine here in San Diego had to use explosives to dig out a hole for their pool...all the bedrock, close to the surface!

The difference is that the West has lots of fault lines, meaning lots of earthquakes = stricter building codes.

Earthquakes are not good in any way, but I prefer that threat to those annual Hurricane and Tornado Seasons and flooding. Just too scary!

Hope everyone is OK - that's what is important.

Southeastern states join national quake drill; Expert: Big one a 'significant probability'

When did I miss Earthquake prediction becoming anything more than a movie plot fantasy? And, don't cha' hate it when Older-Colder Rocks get together and carry shock waves longer distances
