So here i am sitting in my trailer/field office, pretending to be working while reading the TT forums, and suddenly all the monitors started to tremble and the desk started to move around, i though uhmm maybe it is a big truck, but go to the window and nope, no big truck, and then the people of the other trailers started to come out and the phones to ring and sudenlly no ringing anymore but the earth still moving and my freaking trailer that is mounted in a couple of home made stands seems like going down and suddenly everything stopped, just to begin five seconds later. pretty scary it was like a 30 seconds little earthquake and then another for about 15. For now all the phones and cell lines are down. The worst thing is that i think this was just "what was left of the earthquake", somewhere around here was the epicenter, im pretty sure it was pretty ugly overthere.

Also there is a presidential meeting in a local stadium, i bet those people are really scare.

Well that is, just wanted to share this experience with you guys...

Yes im ok, it was just a scare, the problem is that my office/trailer is not on a firm ground so it moves a lot. This (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2007kha5.php) is what happened

And some news (http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/11/30/2106034.htm)

The amazing thing is that those islands are at least 7.000km from where i live.

actually the earthquake started slightly before where i live (news (http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Earthquake_in_Delhi)) and then traveled down to your area.

i am quite sure i caused it with my awesome flat serves.
