Looks like one of the apt buildings in downtown Augusta...

Kind of generic looking...

Looks like my hotel in Caracas, Venezuela that I was staying in when an earthquake occurred. The whole building swayed like a flag in a breeze. What an experience!!!

oooooooooooh, Katie!, how frightening!! One of my friends with her 2 year old by herself endured the big Cairo earthquake when the walls swayed back, forth, back, and was told had they done another "forth" the building would have collapsed (they were on the ground floor BTW!)

It was blood pressure-raising to say the least.

I think I was on about the 10th floor. There was pounding on the room door, along with "Get down into the lobby...NOW!"

Didn't have to tell me twice.

I was in Los Angeles on business many years ago. 6:30 in the morning I was in the shower on the 30th floor when an earthquake hit. You can imagine all the action plans that were running through my mind as I stood there covered with soap and significantly under dressed for an evacuation!
