Lived in Ohio most of my life and never experienced them there, didn't have them here, but when I moved to California for three years... Not fun times >.<
Went through earthquakes ranging from 1.3 to I believe the biggest was just under a 6.0 or something. Weren't anywhere near the epicenter on the big ones, we were hours away from them yet it felt like they prettymuch happened right under us.
Back in New Mexico now and it's weird cause heh... We're having minor ones here occasionally now -_-;;; Like kiratsukai said, Like earthquakes? Not particularly, but you do have to respect them. Respect Mother Nature in general really as she seems to be rather ticked off at us as of late.
