However, I did spend 21 years in Glendale California and lived through the Northridge Earthquake. The loudest sounds I remember with that were the sounds the house made as it flexed. The Whittier Narrows earthquake caught me at LAX heading with my wife to Washington DC. We did not hear anything at the airport but saw significant swaying of hanging signs. We found out that our large living room picture window did not like the stress and cracked and fell to the driveway below. Fortunately, the good company I worked for sent some people over to clean up and orchestrate the boarding up process. We kept the wood just in case it ever happened again. -- Richard L.
