    My husband said the last small one we felt here in Indiana caused a crack to open between the window and the brick. It took a whole container of silicone to caulk it up to prevent water from getting in this winter and freezing, doing more damage. Hate to think what a big quake would do.

    My DD works in Alameda, and e-mailed right after it happened. She said it was a bit of a shock, and has the office all a-twitter. No damages, thankfully.

    Yes, I think we had 12-14 of them yesterday or was it the day before. Located on the Big Island, Hawaii. Not felt in Honolulu...thank goodness!!! That biggie we had 5 years ago knocked out power for more than 12 hours!!! Felt like a train coming through the property and also a rolling motion kind of feeling. Yikes!!! Scared me something bad!!!
