Have you ever been in an earthquake, tornado, or other natural disaster? When was it and what did you do to stay safe?

March 6, 2012

Ohio gets everything but monsoons when it comes to weather (thunderstorms, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, & even hurricane weather). But I haven’t been in the middle of anything but rainstorms, thunderstorms and mild earthquakes. Rainstorms only suck to drive in, as well as when there’s flooding. But one thunderstorm a few years ago caused my home to be struck by lightning. It took out a few trees in our neighborhood too. Our home was fine, we just needed our alarm system repaired. The mild earthquakes happened 2 1/2 years apart- one in spring 2009 (epicenter was in southern Indiana) and one in summer/fall 2011 (epicenter was in or near DC area and could be felt along most of the eastern seaboard; it was felt here in Ohio too).

Ask me anything
