funny story here in our place. 

had a 5 something magnitude earthquake last year. dunno who started it but they said people near the pier/ports made a joke of a tsunami. that was months after the devastation in japan happened. imagine the number of establishments left open coz people panicked and ran to the mountain areas. day after, news of many stolen stuff were the contents of the news.  :lol:

I remember the morning the Karoo Ice Age hit. I was planning on taking a trip to the DMV to get my motorcycle license renewed. After eating breakfast and checking my email, I headed outside. Boy that was a shocker!! Fuckin' ice and snow everywhere. I usually get severe weather alerts on my iPhone, but the spreading of the polar caps must have knocked out my service. Once cell phone service get's knocked out, you know it probably a lost cause trying to anything done a work. So I stayed home for the next 100 million years playing Minecraft. When it was finally warm enough to go outside, I tried starting my car, but the increased Oxygen levels in the atmosphere must have fouled my spark plugs and the car wouldn't even turn over. I probably wouldn't have gotten far anyways since the wheel hadn't even been invented. I would have taken pics and posted them to facebook, but those hadn't been invented either.

The moral of the story is be grateful you only had to deal with a minor earth quake.

Nothing to bad has happened to me recently, i'm more worried about the gigantic trees falling on the house when it gets windy. And when it rains a little the whole street tends to flooded lol

I was in Chile, first time ever, visiting with my parents. My mom was worried about earthquakes but everyone told us we'll be fine. Well, 24 hours into the trip, we have an 8.3 magnitude earthquake. We were on the 9 floor, and my mother decided to make us run down all the stairs to the group floor.

 

Best part? When we got there, all the Chileans were acting like nothing happened and when asked about it they were just like "Happens all the time, no biggy".

The only thing I can think of was a few years ago when we had about 175mm of dowpour over one day. I live in a city that isn't prone to floods at all, with an average pf 213 rainy days a year and with 84 days as the longest streak of consecutive days with rain, we're well suited to water from above.

 

But that day was just crazy, and the water masses led to a couple of land slides and some lives were lost :(

I live in New Zealand, we had a magnitude 7.1 in September 2010 and a 6.3 in February 2011.

That was a somewhat interesting experience, (it's my one too)

Wow, I keep reading this thread and I keep thinking how it's nice to live in Europe, by the Adriatic sea, having this awesome Mediterranean climate.

The only natural disaster I experienced was the Newcastle floods from last year. 6 Months of rain in 10 minutes or something stupid like that

 

I think I remember that on TV, pretty insane.

 

We had some flooding here but nowhere near that scale, Tesco also wasn't keen because they lost their carpark under 50cm of water which didn't look very bad but people was complaining about it.

It was insane I was stuck 6 Miles from my house because the busses stopped running before school finished so I had to walk to a friends which is half a mile from school then wait for my parents to pick me up

 

Buses stopped, why?

 

10 or more tonnes I'm sure they'd be fine, certainly better than a car at least.

Because the service was delayed and it was too dangerous to send out more because I seen pictures of the water being up to knee height on the bottom deck

 

Ohh so it was a little more than a puddle then lol
