as for me, I never had any major nor minor injuries during a earthquake but the strongest one I felt was at 9.3 magnitude back in 1993.



where was that?
 
I've been through quite a few. I grew up in southern CA - the worst one was probably in Seattle though. It was 6.8 (2001) but I was in an office building that stands 54 stories tall. The building shook and swayed for almost 2 minutes. I thought I was going to die.



at guam.
 
 
hmmmm 6.8 was not that strong in guam.

1993: Aug. 8, Guam: earthquake measuring 8.1 in magnitude caused severe damage to many structures but no fatalities. Sept. 29, India: earthquake measuring ...
I guess 9.3 isn't really that strong in Guam either.
 
besides, I said it was the worst because I was in a skyscraper. If you've ever been in a building that big during an earthquake you'd understand. As far as strongest, not sure.
