    1. Yes
    2. 7.9, when I was travelling through Alaska and Canada visiting friends. I was on a week stopover in Anchorage, due to fly out the next day when it struck.

    3. Don't have too many tornado's in Australia like you do in the States, but I was at the local swimming pool one day when a whirlwind struck. It tossed rubbish bins around and threw a kid off the diving board into the pool.
    4. Caught the tail end of a few cyclones when I lived in Brisbane back in the 80's.
    5. The town I grew up in flooded in 1956, like a lot of towns on the River Murray, before my time though.

    1. Have you ever felt an earthquake?
    Yep. The eeriest one was when I was on the 15th floor of a tower. I could feel the building swaying from the quake.
    2. If more than one, what's the biggest magnitude quake you've ever felt?
    I'd guess the biggest would be ~5
    3. Have you ever had a tornado come close to where you were?
    Yeah actually, and here in the NW, Tornados are very very rare. There was one here about 5-10 miles from my house a couple months ago.
    4. Ever been in a hurricane?
    no, might be quite an experience though.
    5. Has your home/town ever flooded in a storm?
    no, and I am thankful that this hasn't happened.

    2) The ocean. So does brown.
    3) The Pope
    4) Tight grip righty
    5) I'm debating whether or not to read the dark tower series. I've never read anything by him, but my favorite movies are either IT or Dreamcatcher.

    See, i thought that book sucked. It was about a dog with rabies. That's not scary. That just sucks. it's basically a book about someone's really, really bad day. I remember reading that and just waiting for it to get good, and by about 50 pages before the end i realized it... wasn't going to ever get good :(
