More heavy rain and an EARTHQUAKE!

On friday I wrote about the typhoon alert. Apart from heavy rain and a bit of thunder, it didn't seem to materialise. This morning we had more very heavy rain and Neil had to head off with semi-waterproofs on. But the most exciting/scarey thing was that last night we experienced our first earthquake!!!!!!! It was in the evening, and we were sitting relaxing on the sofa. At first I thought Neil was shaking his foot and making the sofa rock and then, just as I was asking him if he was shaking his foot, we realised that the whole apartment was shaking!!!!!! It was such a strange sensation and we didn't really know what to do with ourselves. We just sat there until it passed, feeling pretty "shaken up". We just had to laugh about it as it was such a surreal experience...
