My first and only experience with an earthquake was during a stay in Tokyo. I was sleeping peacefully when roused to consciousness by the bed shaking. Remember thinking "This must be an earthquake" before going back to sleep.

I wish to point out that the vast majority of earthquakes, while scary to newbies residents and persons out of area, are not destructive. And they are very rarely followed by floods, except in the midwest perhaps where the bedrock is akin to jello.

The Spanish mission at San Juan Batista, California, for example, is an 18th century adobe-and-timber structure built unknowingly right on top of the San Andraes fault--and it has been shaken over the years but never damaged by a tremor or [in new speak] tembler.
