I was answering my notifications when thearth started to move. In my country you never know how big an earthquake is going to be so I always run, in part because I dread them. I was here (very far thanks br given) when the big Valdivia earthquake hit my country. It is still after 60 years, the biggest earthquake ever recorded. I live in the first floor and the glass door to the garden is called "the door of the earthquakes". Today I was already installed in my bed ready to mylot. I had closed the house and turned on thr alarm. And then the lamp started to move and the bell like stone from Brazil started to sound. I got up trembling, turned off the alarm, opened the door and went out to the garden. It wasn´t a big one but it scared me. They always do. I still haven´t set the alarm.

They would scare me too. I'm glad you are safe. Does Luna seem to notice them?

Luna does not worry. But other dogs in the neighborhood bark.

It is difficult to know when the earth stooped trembling and when I stopped.

Yes one never knows when one gets a big earthquake. We live in seismic zone 4, next to the Himalayas, and though the quakes' impact is not as powerful, the 2015 Nepal Earthquake did make people rush out of houses and Office buildings and some damages too were observed.

Here in my region, there were recorded quakes already in the past weeks and I hope that there will be no greater than that in the coming days like last year as we are shaken by a successive earthquakes.

Earthquakes are scary we had a one big one in 2011 and a series of aftershocks that were scarier than the original quake!

I know that they can scare you the last "jolt" we had was not long back after that movidito earthquake also. 21 aftershocks that we had were strong and scary almost no one slept that night. Stay safe and well.

Oh so sorry to hear about that. I am glad that for tge past several months we only experience a very mild shaking that it was not that serious. I also dread earthquake since it is really a terrifying to experience. I would rather choose typhoons over earthquakes.

And you want me to come and live there? I went through a very traumatic earthquake in 1971. Just reading about this one of yours, triggered a bit of anxiety that I didn't realize I had regarding that natural disaster. I am glad that you are safe
