Have you experienced any kind of natural calamity, such as earthquake, tornado, flood etc.?
I've been through many tornadoes and hurricanes. I'd say hurricanes are not too bad, as we have plenty of warning and can get out of the area in time. It's the tornadoes that are horrific- no warning, no time to prepare, etc. A few years ago I was watching the news, tracking a nearby tornado in real time. I could see it approaching me. I clearly remember hearing them mention my area of town and 2 minutes later the electricity went off, winds howling like crazy, the house shaking. It was terrifying. No damage to the house but the street outside was bad.
It must have been horrible! Natural disasters without warning are the most scary and one can never forget them throughout life. If there is no loss of life, one can still recover from the terrifying experience.
Thanks for sharing your experience!
Hurricanes count? Those are kind of fun. Tons of wind and dancing in the rain. Some flooding comes with it, but not too much. But I'm terrified of earthquakes. From my experience, the earth is not supposed to move.
Hurricanes are bad, but you get prepared for it. But it is too much to gather life back to normalcy after that. Earthquakes are indeed frightening and if experienced, one can not forget for the rest of life. Even small tremors now refreshes memories.
Yes, actually, I have. There was a huge earthquake in Los Angeles in 1972. I was 30 miles from the epicenter, but it shook the bricks right off of building exteriors, opened the road in front of my building and shook the legs right off furniture. It wasn't long after that that I moved out of LA. It was very frightening.
Earthquakes are the worst natural disasters, I believe. I have witnessed the 26th Jan. 2001 Gujarat Earthquake, which lasted for over 2 minutes and killed over 20,000 people and destroyed so much. I can relate to your experience. Thanks for answering
