    I went to Post office and while I was out in my car there was a 3.7 magnitute earthquake between Prescott and Williams Arizona. I did not feel anything.

    My kids are in fear the the New Madrid fault line is gonna go soon. We don't live for from it. A 3.7 is nothing, just enough to make you feel dizzy. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a bigger one.

    One other time there was a earthquake in Palm Springs California and we felt it here in AZ which is about 5 and 1/2 hours from us. Anyway it was about 5AM and the dog was barking before our mirrored closet doors started to shake. The animals know ahead of time which is amazing.

    I don't like the dizzy feeling...I've only been in one small one here in Michigan back in '84 or '85. I was at work and the full wall of windows were shaking.

    it seems there have been a lot of earthquakes lately,, in places that don't usually have them.

    I agree...I watch the earthquake website everyday - I'm a weather freak - and since the day of the 9.0 quake, there has been a super-high amount of quakes each day.

    I felt an earthquate back in January, 1985 right here in NE Ohio and I will never forget that sound or feeling of the walls shaking and the building I was in, jumping a few times.
    I live near a nuclear power plant and I thought it had exploded.

    JMO but no use getting excited about these they happen all the time, can do all things right...... then get wacked by a small auto.
    When it time it's time, do the best you can do, and enjoy whatever/whoever is in your world.
    While trying to stay on the right of right.
