Monday, May 19, 2008At precisely 10.29 pm Monday, I felt my chair pushed back and forth. Thinking that it was Mimi trying to get my immediate attention, I turned around and saw her at her own computer. She felt the tremor too. We confirmed that we were not imagining things by asking the neighbours on the upper floors.
Soon most of the people in our apartment block were downstairs. All felt a strong tremor. We were told that the tremor was even felt in Pandan Indah. No tremor was felt by friends in Pantai Hillpark.
We now know that there was an earthquake in Northern Sumatera, 6.1 on the Richter scale.
What did not happen was a response from DBKL who should have given us an All Clear or something.
