    I was in the Northridge Quake in California.

    The earthquake had a "strong" moment magnitude of 6.7, but the ground acceleration was the highest ever instrumentally recorded in an urban area in North America. Fifty-seven people died as a result of the earthquake and over 12,000 were injured. In addition, the earthquake caused an estimated $12.5 billion in damage, making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.

    Yes, many a time. I was even in class once when we had an earthquake.

    The highest magnitude I remember was a 7.4 or something like that.

    Source(s): I live in California, less than 5 miles from a fault line...enough said. I know, greatest place in the world to live, right?
