I haven't been in any major earthquakes that caused damage and tend to enjoy them when they happen. I am now in Hamilton which according to WolframAlpha alpha is 391Km from Wellington. I felt yesterdays big earthquake as only a light rocking. My big concern for you guys and girls in Wellington is that Lambton Quay, the heart of the business district, is mostly built on reclaimed land.

Yea, I know, that's why I mentioned it. This does not occur with other natural disasters, though - during last hurricane (Sandy), when the waves were reaching the side of our house, our cat was just sleeping on kitchen's chair.
