I grew up in Pasadena, just north of Washington Ave. I remember as a kid actually sort of enjoying the earthquakes (young and stupid). Moving to the midwest when I was 7, I then adopted a much more severe fear of tornadoes. Somehow the advance warning made them a bit scarier. Sort of like zombies...if zombies just snuck up on you and struck they wouldn't be as scary, but when they move slowly and relentlessly towards you the fear builds. I hated tornado season as a kid.
