Earthquake Tremor Felt At KL!

I woke up at 3am yesterday and couldn't get back to sleep so I came on9 and download my movies plus chat on MSN. By 6am, there's no else to chat with so I checked my blog and replied messages.

Around 6.15am, I felt dizzy suddenly and at first I thought it was because I'm too tired and lack of sleep. But the same feeling continued for like 1 minute so I know it's not me. I look at my headset which is hanging on the side of my computer table, and I saw the wire swaying from left to right too.

I have felt earthquake tremor for quite a number of times since 2004 (the Tsunami incident), so I know it's another earthquake tremor again. But this time, the tremors are much stronger than those I've experienced before.

Went out of my room and I wanted to ask my brother if he felt it but by the look on his face I know he did. So the 2 of us grabbed our wallet and go out. It is recommended not to use the lift during this kind of situation, but me and my brother still took the lift lol =x
[WARNING: To the little kids at home, please do not learn from me]

Even in the lift I can still feel the tremor. Went down and sat at the bus stop opposite my place for about half an hour. I thought to myself, would the other residents feel it or would they be having a great time in Dreamland without realising that the earthquake tremor occurred. But moments later there was a few more person who came down haha. Not much though =x

While sitting at the bus stop, I also regretted for not taking a video of the wires swaying so that I can post it here haha. This proves that when something happen unexpectedly, you won't think so much XD Perhaps next time, IF it happens again I will take a video of it =P

Btw, the moment I got home I tried to Google and see the tremor was from which earthquake. I found out that a Magnitude 7.8 Earthquake took place at Northern Sumatera at 5.15am(GMT +7)!! Omg..another strong earthquake took place again. I haven't found any reports with more details regarding the earthquake but I can be sure there's certainly gonna be a high number of deaths =(

After finding out about the earthquake from here and here, I feel really down now. Seriously, imagine the damages, and the loss of lives. It's really really sad to know about it...I will definitely follow the news regarding the earthquake and I hope that the death toll is not too high..Let's all pray for the victims.

P/S: I wrote this post in 2 different mood. The part behind was written in a really emo mood..I am affected by the news that I found out and I really don't think it's funny anymore.

UPDATED 10.55am:
The magnitude of this earthquake has been confirmed at 7.7 and not 7.8 as what I saw this morning. Tsunami warnings have been lifted as well 2 hours after it was issued =)

Usually high rise buildings can feel it, if you're staying in a terrace house I don't think it will affect you much.

Hey! It's been a while I never visit here. How are you doing? :)

I din realize anything. I'm only concerned on my assignments, haha.....

By the way, since there are many earthquakes in these period, I really felt worry on how the Earth has become.

By the wat, recently, when I viewed through a few news articles on Chile, I went across a documentary on some man-made weather manipulation system called H.A.A.R.P. According to those news, the system used millions of watts to manipulate the ionosphere of an area which are capable on producing an earthquake there. There are news on Chile where witnesses saw some changes on the clouds before the earthquake struck.

Not sure if the H.A.A.R.P. issue is real. But to me, it may be possible because there are many secrets behind a government's archives where they don't want the public to know.

Just for sharing only. By the way, if you are investigative, you can visit here.

Take care :) Pray more.

woah, it always happens late at night. ppl who go home drunk definitly wont notice it.

Jan said...

Actually, the amount of earthquakes have never really increased or decreased. Its just that, we're living in a small world so world news is so easily accessible.

10 years ago we wouldn't even now if Chile has earthquakes. Only cos of the internet through the use of blogs, youtube, facebook and twitter, we really really get to know the true extent of the devastation.
