The earthquake was a terrible catastrophe. In china, it's occured the big earthquake in Wenchuan city Sichuan province yesterday. I know that the city was almost razed by it from website and medium. To date more than 50,000 people couldn't be found, and 10,000 people have died. It wreaked havoc on the city. I feel the life is very frail, esp. under natural disaster. I hope the people in the disaster area can cheer up. Friends, Have you experience an earthquake?

I used to work in New Delhi, India and one day while working in laboratory all the bottles on the shelf starting trembling, I thought that girl who has the opposite table in front of me is moving the table and I shouted at her do not move the table all the bottles will fall, she said she is not doing any such thing then together we observed that it was actually a tremor.

Oh yeah, here in Manila earthquakes happens every once in awhile but no that too often. It will be remembered that the disastrous earthquake that hit our country was in 1991 if I'm not mistaken. A lot of the buidings crashed during that time.

earthquakes are tremors in the earth crust due to possible movement of tectonic plates around the world. southeast asia is prone to earthquakes because it is situated in the circumpacific ring of fire. meaning, there are lots of active volcanoes in this area. being a student here in the phil have allowed me some quake experiences. the most notable is when we experience a 6 manitude quake here and we are in the middle of class and suddenly you become dizzy because evrything is rocking plus you gt your classmates scampering to get out of the building.heavensake we are at the fourth floor.luckily no problem surfaced. it was w close call and the administration suspended the classess for the afternoon

When I was younger I experienced a small earth quake, apparently there was also one a few weeks ago but I slept though it. My sister said a few things rattled a little. I live in Michigan USA so we don't get them much but we do get them. As for China, it's horrible what happened I hope that everyone can be strong and get their lives back to normal as much as they can.
