Earthquake

I had blogged on 2nd February on why I felt that this place I stay in, Sylhet, is prone to earthquakes in the near future.

My theory was proved correct yesterday as the earth shook below my feet. At 5:17PM local time, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake with epicentre 80 Kms ESE of Sylhet. Enjoyed the feeling!!

Another one occured farther to the east (another 2 degrees longitude) after one and a half hours - magnitude 5.3! But I was travelling then and did not feel it...maybe it wasn't felt at all here.

Anyway, this was my 1st earthquake experience and I enjoyed it! More are to come...pray they are as mild as this one!
