Nevada USA / not felt: This sounds crazy but for years and years, shortly before an earthquake I experience a loud ringing in my ears. Yesterday I told my husband there is going to be a big earthquake. I don’t know where it will be but it never fails to occur. Too bad I can’t pinpoint the occurrence. I wonder if many people have this weird phenomenon?
