Today there was an earthquake in Michigan close to where I live and I wanted to share itDid you have any encounters with the such in your life?
Yeah, well there are not many quakes that we can feel, but they are still there.I can't believe what happened in Nepal.
Wow, that's terrible. Just after you had to go through the initial event and scared for life, you end up having to deal with 20 more earthquakes that are still destructive. The small 5.1 earthquake here had two noticeable aftershocks just a few minutes after the initial thing, and we were standing close to the exit door just in case an even bigger one would occur (I heard that sometimes the aftershocks can be even stronger). If we had an even bigger earthquake we would probably either run for our lives or I would be stunned in shock.
Pretty much, Chicoutimi had 11 inches of rain in a few hours, it's pretty much more rain in a day than what we usually get in a month. And then the dams failed. Thinking of that, similar stuff happened with category 4 and 5 hurricanes in the US, I think of New Orleans during Katrina, among others, where the dams had a hard time keeping it up, so imagine if we had such hurricanes this far in the north...And yeah, the infamous Ice Storm of 1998. The big of the damage was more in the Montreal and Ottawa area, though.
