Iben Browning predicted there would be a major earthquake near the New Madrid fault.I remember one time in the late 80's or early 90's when they were predicting "The Big One" out of the New Madrid on a particular day. I was working at TGI Friday's at the time and I wore a hardhat in to work. Needless to say, nothing happened.
The very first quake I felt after I moved to Indiana I was sitting at my home desk and the house started shaking exactly like the washer was out of balance. I was very confused because I hadn't noticed my wife doing laundry.Here in Peru I just thought the wash machine was out of balance.
I don't think that's the one I was thinking of. I think it's the one that n9tkf mentioned above.1987...
I was tending bar in Wanamaker. Was afraid for a few seconds that I would bleed to death from a shower of broken glass.I remember that one in ‘87, knocked a picture off the wall here.
