Those of us who live in California can get a little snarky about earthquakes. Maine had a 4.0 earthquake? Oh, that's tough, quake-nonchalant Californians might be tempted to say.  Heard of Loma Prieta, 1989? San Fernando, '71? San Francisco, 1906? But, Californians, here's something you should know: Earthquakes are  different on the East Coast.  A 4.0 back East might jolt more people over a much wider area and, by some measures, could be a much more intense experience. "On the East Coast and in the Midwest, where they have an earthquake that they feel once every seven or eight years, it 's a big deal to them," California state geologist John Parrish told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Wednesday.
