6.0 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE
A magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit my city last night. The center of the earthquake was 7.9 in a neighboring province. Magnitude 6.0 is intense already to me, how much more in a 7.9? Thanks heavens we were all fine and altogether in the house except for my daughter, who is at the training center. About two seconds after the earthquake started, the power was turned off. I hurried out of my room, ran downstairs amid the shaking and headed out of the house with my two sons and helper who sought refuge under the dining table. It was a horrible experience. The power was restored only after an hour of brown out.
