2:10 AM – I was working on a website project, listening to my favorite hits. I was concentrating really hard because I have a deadline to meet when I was suddenly jogged out of my chair. I dragged my headphones with me but regained my balance, I then looked at my husband who was working behind me. It lasted for about
5 seconds 10-25 seconds (I originally though it was just 5 seconds but who could count correctly when under that situation? ), then it slowly dawned on me that we just experienced an earthquake and a strong one at that.
I ran to our room to check on the kids, Reign was crying but Khleomi was sleeping like an angel. But I did get a really bad feeling, I really hate earthquakes! Reign just went back to sleep and I am now going to resume work.
I wonder what the intensity was…
