The Forces of Nature
Posted 4/18/08
Hey everyone. Have you ever experienced an Earthquake? or a Typhoon? Hurricane? Land slide? Etc...?

What was it like for you? What was the scariest experience you've had with nature's fury?

I'll share one of mines with you. When I was living in Misawa, earthquakes and tremors were so common. I lived in a tower community (kind of like a high-rise apartment) on the 2nd floor and I remember one night I was looking at the dining room light and I noticed it was swaying a little, then all of a sudden everything was shaking so hard. I was terrified. Our tower was actually swaying (but they purposely made it like that so it would have less of a chance of collapsing) So I crawl under a table and cover my head as everything around me was falling over and breaking. The entire earthquake lasted about 5 minutes and when it was over my home was trashed, the power was out and it was dark. That had to be the freakiest earthquake I've ever been through.

Do you have any stories to share?

Though my family was lucky cuz it came back on after six hours.
