I know these should concern me more because of what they could lead up to or because of what they could have been but I just have trouble taking them all that serious. In example, when I lived in Germany, I went to school one day and the teacher asked us if we felt the earthquake the night before. I, like several others, did not because I was sleeping. Seriously, if it isn't strong enough to wake a sleeping child and it doesn't knock any buildings down...should I really be concerned? HAHA

This one shook our house in St. Thomas Ontario.  American earthquakes should know not to cross the border.

Let me know when y'all are ready to play in the big leagues:

 :laugh2:

Since 1900, Alaska has had an average of:

- One "great" earthquake (magnitude 8 or larger) earthquake every 13 years
- One magnitude 7 to 8 earthquake every year
- Six magnitude 6 to 7 earthquakes per year
- Forty five magnitude 5 to 6 earthquakes per year (almost 1 per week!)
- Three hundred twenty magnitude 4 to 5 earthquakes per year (almost daily)
- An average of a 1,000 earthquakes are located in Alaska each month (3 times per day)

Also:
- Alaska has 11% of the world's recorded earthquakes
- 3 of the 8 largest earthquakes in the world were recorded in Alaska
- 7 of the 10 largest earthquakes in the United States were recorded in Alaska
- Alaska has the second largest earthquake ever recorded ('64 quake at a magnitude of 9.2)

And why don't you keep your beer on your side of the border?!  Oh....wait....um, nevermind.

Quite impressive Keet.   We have a lot here in Tennessee, but they are all 4.0 and below so we usually don't feel them.

Is that why Kimberly calls you "Mister 4.0"?

LOL Randy.   The Richter Scale only goes to 5.0 here.   So 4.0 is pretty good.   :)
