SANTIAGO, Chile — An earthquake has shaken down walls and knocked out electricity in parts of far-northern Chile. No injuries have been reported, though. The U.S. Geological Survey calculates the magnitude as 6.2 and says it was centered about 41 miles (66 kilometers) east-northeast of Tacna, Peru. It occurred at 6 a.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT; 1000 GMT) Tarapaca region Gov. Jose Durana says "walls have fallen in some sectors" some roads were cut off. Many people in the northern town of Arica fled into the streets as the shaking started.

Reading your post gave me a feeling of same. I'm not physic or anything. However what you say, in my mind makes a bit of sense. I just watch the plates move and I get a little giddy when things get quite small and nothing happens. I guess waiting for something big to happen. Kinda like a movie on the screen.
Understanding the science of geologly doesn't make that feeling go away. It just makes it more exciting. I am just a newby learner. I can't imagine what it's likes to know so much and to then see things happen. It must be better than sex.
I have also done some reading in the animal reactions. This too is a very interesting study. Look into the New Madid animal behavior.edit on 15-5-2012 by crappiekat because: (no reason given)edit on 15-5-2012 by crappiekat because: (no reason given)
