Twin Souls

Look more weather

Well, at present there are no active tropical cyclones forming in the South China Sea or the NW Pacific Basin. So it will be clear, at least for a couple of days.

But we just had a 4.7 earthquake about 2 1/2 hours ago. The epicentre was about 60km SE of Taipei.

I was in a team meeting on the 12th floor at work. The whole building seemed to jump, then it swayed for a few seconds. Then we had a few more sways as the aftershocks came. Haven't had one that close in awhile.

The only reaction was "Oh look an earthquake" everyone laughed...then we all continued with the meeting.

I took a look at a historical earthquake site afterwards. They had a map with dots representing epicentres of earthquakes since 1990. Looking at the map for Taiwan, the entire island is covered in dots. I guess that explains why people are so blase about it here. I'm getting that way too.
