I know I shouldn't laugh. It's serious, and it's an assult. I'm sure I'll be forgiven considering the bizarre nature of the matter.
Had to edit. I only laughed at the headline and only read the first two paragraphs. Now I'm know I'm going to pay for my sin. By the end of the story I was disturbed.

I just took mine outside to check....
Walked for 3 blocks in each direction, made notes, and the compared the notes to the locations on google earth.
What should be NW is reading N on the compass in all locations (and I took flight school when I was younger,and am familiar with how to read a compass

The quake I was thinking about in 1979 actually was in 1980, and was in NorthEast Ky near Bath County. Here is the link on the damage caused.
This was the first earthquake I had ever felt. I was standing outside with my family in our front yard. We first heard it, then felt it. It sounded like a locomotive coming with a big roar, then the ground started shaking enough to make my legs feel rubbery. It only lasted a few seconds, then was gone with the roaring sound fading.
It was a 5.2. I couldnt imagine a bigger one like a 7.0 hitting here.
Robin, how big do you think the Big One could possibly be for this area?
