Yesterday, a surprising thing happened to the East Coast - there was an earthquake.  Not a hurricane, but an earthquake!

Now being from the East Coast and living there for about 25 years of my life, I can tell you that an earthquake would scare the bah-jesus outta me!  Now I can handle a hurricane...honestly, I miss them.  I find them exhilarating!

So when I saw the destruction it left compared to say Haiti, the damage was pretty minor.

Gizmodo actually collected a bunch of the destruction videos HERE.

See - not so bad when you compare it to Haiti or Japan.  However, I'd still be all shook up. ;-)

What about you? Have you ever experienced an earthquake?
