    ...who was born during the 1964 earthquake.  Her mother was up in the stirrups and doing her breathing thing, the earthquake started and every one (doctor, nurse, etc) bolted from the room and left her there (in one of the worst earthquakes EVER) until it was over.  Her mother was pretty frantic.

    Still, you're right that earthquakes in general are pretty common.  I can remember that I wouldn't even wake up for an earthquake unless it was powerful enough to knock stuff off my dresser (and make a noise)
