Don't be so sure. If the earthquake is big enough and moving in the right direction (say, parallel to the doorway), that door can swing closed with a really high velocity. (Earthquakes can have enough force to pick up large buses and toss them a large distance.)

Hollow doors, like the ones in question, are less dangerous than solid ones, but I'd rather not have to deal with them.

Don't be worried, folks. California is sinking into the ocean anyway. So are my homeland islands of Japan.

I thought it was the East coast that was sinking, and the West was rising ? New research ? ?
Besides, as long as they keep making more Hawaiian islands, I'm good to go...

mwc,

Pretty much! I move very quickly from one air conditioned space to the next and spend a lot of time on my couch.

It's definitely cool to run in an earthquake. Run outside and watch all the transformers popping, shooting green lightning up into the sky. Very cool!

In the Northridge quake several years ago now, I was asleep in my bed (a waterbed at the time). It was around 4:30 in the morning, as I recall, and I remember waking up to the rumbling. I saw flashes of light outside my window (the transformers popping), heard the noise, felt the bed sloshing all over the place, and thought to myself, "The world's ending. That's nice...."

Needless to say, I am not the quickest to wake up under any circumstances...

Not a lot of open fields in the city or residential areas.

I have lived in California my whole life, the Northridge quake scared the crap out of me, and I was 30 miles from the epicenter.

There were several near my house when I was growing up in the suburbs. Of course, they were kind of underneath high tension wires...

I guess the open fields are few and far between in soCal, but my classroom (HS teacher) borders the football field so that's where I'll be if it's day time and if it's night I'll be in the backyard holding onto one of my scrawny trees.

My wife grew up in Whittier and was eating cereal when the big Whittier quake struck. The epicenter was a mile or two away. She says it felt like a giant picked up their house and started slamming it into the ground. She still talks about how all the cabinet doors came off their hinges and floated around the room. Caused extensive damage to the house. She insits that you can't run in a big earthquake, but I say BS - see you outside.
