This morning my state, North Carolina, had its strongest earthquake

in 94 years! It was a 5.1-magnitude earthquake. I felt it in my house, but it was mild in my city. I was surprised, because earthquakes are rarely felt here. It reminded me of living in Japan.

    @Mits Yes, thankfully it was mild where I live. I live a distance from the epicenter. It was just surprised to feel my house shaking while I drank my morning coffee. 😳

    大丈夫そうでよかった。 日本で地震を体験したの? I'm glad you seem ok. Have you ever felt it in Japan?

    I'm always careful because once I get used to earthquakes, evacuation will be delayed evacuation. North Carolina seems to have a lot of hurricanes, doesn't it? Please pay close attention to natural disasters.

    @Maki Yes, I felt many earthquakes when I lived it Japan. One was strong enough that it cracked my sliding glass door. 😳

    @Kenji That is a good idea. It's always good to be cautious. And, yes, North Carolina frequently gets hurricanes. I live inland, so I usually don't get storms that are very strong, thankfully!

    I felt earthquake in the middle of last night. I was awake and see if I need to take some actions, but nothing bad happened. I feel dull due to less sleeping hours tho.

    Earthquakes are really terrified ! It was happens suddenly. Even if I live in Japan,I won’t get used to it.

    The earthquake is really scary. I was also scared of the morning earthquake. I'm glad you didn't have anything. I was relieved to hear that it was safe.

    I’m relieved to hear that you’re safe. It reminds me of the big earth quake hit San Francisco in 1989. I was there at that time and still remember so scary.

    You must be surprised and scary! I hope you and your family (and your ALL pets,too!!) didn't get any damage from that! In Japan ,especially in my area ,we have earthquake often so I'm really get used to it. Actually, we had one last night when I was reading a book, I felt big shaking for an instant but it finished soon, though!

    @Sachi Yes, thankfully there was no damage in my area. And, oh yes, I do remember the frequent earthquakes there. I was terrified the first time, which was in the middle of the night shortly after I arrived in Japan, but I mostly got used to it after a while. I'm glad your earthquake last night was not bad!
