    One minor, one not so minor, but neither did any damage.

    That same quake that shook Virginia. It was my first and provided me with plenty of amusement. They should happen more often.

    Apparently I slept through one this morning.

    However I did actually experience a small ground tremor in Japan several years ago.

    I felt a small one several years ago, and the aftershock.

    I have lived in L.A. for the past 20+ years.

    I think that's enough information for you to deduce the answer.

    I'm the first one to vote "no"? Surprising! My reasoning is the same as Zap's just above. I've lived 20+ years in Sydney, Australia. But the answer is the opposite!

    You don't think: I should get under that table. You think: Why is that skylight shaking?

    My primary residence is in San Francisco, so yes. The small ones are actually fun.

    The big ones... not so much.

    Yes. It was a small one the week after Christmas one year that we felt from the next county because the ground was really, really saturated from the rain.

    No. Supposedly that one that hit DC and VA was felt around here, but not by me.

    We've felt a few this way, where I'm from, over the last few years. They were all minor, but they were still scary, nevertheless. It's the only time I can remember actually seeing the walls of my living room shake, and that was this year.

    I've never been through an earthquake, and I hope I never have to go through one.

    No kidding. Debris from the one in Japan (and the resulting tsunami) is now washing up on the shores of Western Canada.
