Well, I'll put it this way..as I understand the charts I've read. If an F-5 Tornado is like the finger of God. Then a mag-10 Quake would be God kicking you in the family jewels......twice.
I hope I don't live to see one, personally.....given how the scale is progressive as it rises.
Hey.. I found a 9.5!
The Valdivia Earthquake
Tsunami Wave Graph
I really hope I never live to see one. Especially not in my area. Nightmare wouldn't cover it if the New Madrid decided it wanted to set records or something.edit on 17-12-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)

Its hard to imagine that the largest on the video, the 9.5 would be dwarfed by the 9.8 that created the tsunami that killed 250,000 by...33x and then that multiplied by 33x greater and all that again by 33x.
The big ten would then be 33 times greater than a 9.9.
Where would you not feel that?

I think if Yellowstone popped off the whole world would feel it. volcano's are stronger and more dangerous to us then earthquakes. If we have a mega volcano like Yellowstone, it would be an extinction level event for all but bunker-ed souls. A 10 would be devastating no doubt, but mega volcanoes are where the doom lies.
