    I've only ever experienced one Earthquake, tremors yes, even two in Cornwall !! It was in the Philippines in a bar, and the main effect was all the pictures on the wall started to rattle, and this went on for several seconds. Really quite strange. One of our Philippino crewmen pointed out of the window at a Volcano far away on the horizon and shrugged his shoulders, something quite normal for them.
    So I do find this site interesting....

    I was on the first floor above ground in a Secondary School in Peru when i experienced my one and only proper Earthquake.

    I was holding on to a metal tubing barrier that spanned the floor of the quad i was on, and it felt like someone was distantly drumming, or tapping, on it.

    As i looked down the line to see who was doing the tapping, the *ALARM* suddenly sounded, and everybody but me panicked/yelled/screamed/ran for cover.

    Some of those kids had already seen bigger and scarier ones, and behaved appropriately.
