Gracias, Poli, causó mucho nerviosismo, porque la gente está hipersensible con el asunto de la influenza, pero no hubo daños a los edificios, así que todo está bien.

Por cierto, la palabra "terremoto" es demasiado fuerte... fue sólo un temblor.

It felt a little more than "mild" and I thought it was well over 6 in richter scale, but the press said it was only 5.7.

After 1985, we consider an earthquake "strong" when it approaches 7.

I have only ever experienced one earthquake in my lifetime and that was only a tremor on your scale, (3. something). Though I did sleep through another quite a few years later that was a bit stronger!
However, I do remember it as being one of the strangest experiences I have ever gone through.

Hope everyone is OK.

The important in this moment is not the earthquake if not the virus Influeza porcina, thank to god in my city does not exist cases about it, but it worry me so much above more for my children, because as you know it although has cure with the medicaments that exist for the treatment it does not leave to be a potential worries of the people.

@Ambarina: you're right, it's a very strange experience. An old friend of mine used to say an earthquake changes everything you thought of before, since the only thing that never seems to change at your feet is the floor and it suddenly starts moving.

In Mexico City almost everyone gets very scared with any earthquake because the memory of 1985 is still fresh.

Chile is an earthquake prone country. I grew up being told what to do in case of one and had plenty of hands-on practice. On a seventh floor!

All of my major quakes had been experienced on a seventh floor. You just can't imagine what a little tremor feels like at that height. Much less a 6.5 earthquake.

The first time I experience a mild tremor on "dry land", was also the first time I heard the telluric noise a quake carries, I was 22 years old at the time.

I almost stained my pants!

When I lived in the Mexico city, I felt a earthquake in the my edifice when I was with my uncle, then it's truly very ugly more when you are in the thirteen floor, you can see as the things start to moving and hit all the things it's around, I didn't know what I should to do, but last fourteen seconds later, the earthquake finish without leave damages to my department, it's happened at the 90's, I didn't live the earthquake of the 80's but I my grandmother yes lived that earthquake.
