Earthquakes are no fun

I've never been through an earthquake, so to me that is the scariest. As far as fire - I wouldn't want to die in one but at least you have the opportunity (most of the time) to get somewhere safe. With an earthquake, they aren't really predictable and you could be crushed and trapped somewhere for days - alive with no food, water or facilities just waiting for someone to find and rescue you. I can't imagine that!

I don't live close enough to the coast to really worry about tsunamis and I've survived hurricanes and tornadoes so I know what to expect and what to do. So maybe it is more of the lack of preparedness that freaks me out about an earthquake rather than the earthquake event - either way though I don't want to find out!
