Earthquake

I experienced an earthquake less than an hour ago.

Wicked.

We're "not supposed" to get earthquakes here in the south of Sweden and Denmark. At least not earthquakes that can be noticed... This was a strong one, they're saying 4.7-4.8 on the Richter scale. And from what I've read on the Internet and heard on the radio; it lasted for about ten seconds.

I was in the shower and felt movement at the same time as I heard a loud noise. I assumed it was a heavy vehicle of some sort, but thought it was strange as we don't have garbage pick-up until Friday...

I've felt my first eartquake.

I'd say congratulations, but I'm not sure that is appropriate here! :)

Earthquakes are strange, aren't they? The ground just isn't supposed to DO that!

Oj, så du upplevde alltså den berömda jordbävningen... Inte illa - eller också var det det... Ibland kan det kännas som om det är jordbävningar här i stockholmstrakten med, men det är nog bara när det dundrar förbi tung trafik och då de spränger på bygget här en bit bort...men jag förstår känslan som du beskrev faktiskt... Hoppas att du får en fin jul och kolla in min blogg för jag kommer att lägga in lite nya spännande saker där snart =) Hälsn. Jessica.
