My first earthquake!

I was standing in front of the computer at work and began to slighty sway from side to side... I thought I was getting dizzy or sick. I quickly looked up and saw our chandeliers swaying as well. It was not scary, just an eerie feeling. There was no rumbling or items falling off of shelves. The locals called it a "rolling earthquake". It lasted for about 2 minutes and then we just went on with our day. Most people didn't think anything of it, I guess they are used to it here!


  1. I wondered if you felt it! I was driving to work yesterday and heard on the radio that the earthquake was felt in LA

  2. I think it's funny that you thought you were getting sick!!

  3. I was actually embarrased because I could feel myself swaying and thought these people must think I've been drinking or something. I didnt want to look up! Thankfully they were swaying too :)
