    Thanks for the links to the articles Wayne. Looks like the aftershocks are getting smaller at least. I have never heard of so many afterwards. Looks like brick buildings and houses didn't do so well there. Glad you are safe.

    That's some pretty good sized cracks. The really bad quakes are when the ground moves sideways, like some of those pics. Looks like anything made of brick just fell down.

    WOW that was some experience, was at work when it hit (work for a trucking company) and i got out of the depo in a hell of a hurry when pallets started falling in the wharehouse just outside the window, a few meters from the doorway i was in.

    But all in all we were very lucky, at that time of day (4.45am) not too many people are at work otherwise there would have been heaps of casualties.

    Hey bubba get your hand off my ass,

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.

    Hello Cantab,

    Once felt an earthquake in Holland, I think it was 0,000001 on scale of Richter and just one shake.

    Stay focused and save and park your XJ at least 10 meters distance from a building.
