Oh yes ... but when quakes are stronger than 4, 4.5, filling is not so nice .... especially at the 9th floor ....

All the West Coast has to have a stronger quake activity ... inclyding Alaska ... if my memory serves San Francisko was damaged badly in the beginning of previous century ...

I'm not a big fan of earthquakes. I keep missing the little ones that we do have. Either I sleep through them or I'm doing something else like driving that makes me miss them completely. It's probably more than five years since I last felt a quake up here.

But then again, it's pretty easy to miss a 2 on the Richter scale.

Yes Mark … most of homes there were built '30 – '40 of the last century … we had a similar home, it was broken up because of the new building I am living now … I often have regretted about it, but not now …

I'm sure the new buildings are a bit safer during earthquakes?

Oh yes … In the period of communism we had enough concrete and steel ... and guns as well ... nothing else.
New buildings are calculated to be safe even at the 7th degree of Richter scale. The building I am living in there are not even little cracks …
We believe, that next 100 years in our region there will be not earthquake stronger than 4th degree …

It looks like people are on their roofs replacing tiles that fell off because of the earthquakes. Right?

Apart from earthquakes in Bulgaria and embarrassing protesters and anarchists in Montreal, how's everyone's summer going?
