and now you're making light of what the Japanese went through with your tsunami comment?
The storms are rolling in right now, and I have the windows and curtains open and the lights off so I can enjoy the smells and sounds of all that booming, ozone and rain in the air!

Just curious...anyone know if this is a transform fault of a divergent in that area?
I'm not familiar with the area and it's geological make-up!

Man, the flippant attitudes have nothing to do with being unprepared or not taking it seriously. Its about being jaded to the presence of them. I am sure a few Oklahomans dash into their bathrooms when the sirens go off, but the vast majority dont even break stride.
If it comes close to us, then we start getting everything ready.
Probably because the gov't and its parent corporations have trained us to distract ourselves with high tech toys and a culture that makes us think what clothes we wear and jobs we hold makes us who we are.
Is it me or is anyone else feeling a light shaking when sitting still or lying down. I never really took notice of it until recently. It bugs me out.

Had to look up what a strike-slip fault was. This is what I found in case anyone else was curious.
2] STRIKE-SLIP FAULT
In a strike-slip fault, the movement of blocks along a fault is horizontal. If the block on the far side of the fault moves to the left, as shown in this animation, the fault is called left-lateral. If the block on the far side moves to the right, the fault is called right-lateral. The fault motion of a strike-slip fault is caused by shearing forces. Other names: transcurrent fault, lateral fault, tear fault or wrench fault
