Shaking The Night Away

We had an earthquake last night.

People in London are pretending they felt it.

I asked a friend who claimed to feel it if people in Britain know what to do in the event of an earthquake. His response: "From the sound of it, no. A few people went outdoors apparently, so they could be hit by falling objects."

UPDATED: BBC News describes it as a "very British earthquake: Everybody talking about it, but nobody's hurt."

I have to say, having been through quite a few earthquakes in my time, going outside often felt like the right move! There are usually more things inside to fall on you than outside. This was, though, in California where the architecture is generally fairly low to the ground!

The big damage that happened was collapsing chimneys. If you went outside, that was a risk. But I do see your point.

I heard that it was about a 5.3 on the Richter scale. But other reports say it was only 4.7. That's probably not too bad, considering no one was hurt and not much damage was done. I was a little worried about you guys when I first heard about it, though.
