The Earthquake Today



Suddenly I was woken up and at first thought it was a dizziness due to my sleep. My wife asked whether I feel the house is swaying. Yes, I could feel it. However I stayed calm and when she asked whether we should go down, I said not necessary. We are not in the earthquake zone or the vulnerable Ring of Fire and Kuala Lumpur (in fact Malaysia) is quite safe. We will only feel the wave of the quake and the further away from the epicentre, the intensity gets lower. I am confident with my house. So we stayed all the time the tremor swayed the building.

I looked from the bedroom balcony and saw this. Neighbours have already evacuated to the ground floor but at where they congregate they are still not in the safe zone. So its no point too, to evacuate and stay next to the building. They should have moved far away from the building.



After the tremor end I too went down just to be with the crowd and take some pictures of the event, I mean the evacuation. Just to share the excitement of the tremor.


 Still not a safe place to to "run to higher ground". This space is just about 10 metres between two blocks  of apartments.
