I've been in two major earthquakes, one in 89' and the other in 94': I know the terror caused by natural disasters. The LA quake hit with such force that the building almost came down on my head. It felt like a giant hand grabbed my neck and throttled me with a jack hammer. I barely got away unscathed. Telling the tale is nothing like seeing it. Our hearts go out to the victims of this latest natural disaster.
