There is something about earthquakes that affects humans, and other animals for that matter, on a very primitive level.
we have been conditioned by millennia of experience to expect the Sun and Moon to rise and set, the ocean tides to rise and fall, but the Earth to be firm beneath our feet. When the ground moves like an amorphous mass of Jello, it creates the ingrained terror in us that our ancient ancestors would have felt.
