I didn't feel anything. I felt the one that hit Pike County about 2-4 years ago on a Saturday around noon. It actually felt quit strong yet it was a baby earthquake. I can't imagine living in Cali.

That is the second one to hit eastern Kentucky in about a week. Brandon Robinson posted on facebook a few weeks about another. I wonder when the big one will hit here.

If you are talking about the New Madrid fault, my guess is that everyone will feel it!! Last time a quake hit there, the Mississippi River ran backward!! That just blows my simple mind.

That just goes to show ya the power of mother nature, all of our technology and bombs have nothing on her fury. What did the quake you were talking about register? did they ever say?

I don't remember exactly, it was small. Like 3.2 maybe.

Doesn't the Mississippi run the way it does (backwards) to this day because of That?
The last one that could be felt in Corbin happened what seemed like 7 or 8 years ago?
I worked late the night before and slept.right threw it
Never woulda known what hit me.


Have you all ever seen the collapsible beds for people that live in active earthquake areas? They collapse when they start shaking from an earthquake and drop.you inside the box, mattress and all and there you will have water, food, etc until they can dig you out if needed. Looks pretty cool.

My bed has collapsed a few times, but it wasn't from an earthquake. I was just laying in it.

If I'm being honest, a catastrophic earthquake is one of my biggest "irrational" fears in life. I can't control or stop it, and it can't be predicted. But, man, the thought of being in a situation where everything is shaking and collapsing around me, I'm not emotionally strong enough to be able to roll with that.

^^I can understand that. Where do you go and what do you do? Stay inside and get crushed or run outside and chance falling a few miles underground if a cavern opens up?

It's a real big deal around Paducah. Mortgage companies now require earthquake insurance and a homeowners' rider with $40,000 deductible on a $200,000 masonry home costs anywhere from $400 to $700 a year extra. When the New Madrid lets loose with a rattle, I have seen bricks fall out of chimneys in smaller towns down around the actual fault 30 miles away. We had one trembler 10-12 years ago in the night where people actually left their homes on my street and were out in their yards.
