Felt it on the 12th floor…it was like someone shook my bed violently up and down and then everything started swaying sideways…Man!! That was scary!

Our company’s board of executives is visiting from the states…definitely a nice way to welcome them to Taiwan haha.

Just got the SMS alert on my phone…a 5.7 magnitude quake in Beitou…

Guys and gals, check your phones to see if you received the “early warning” info.

Rats. Epicenter in Beitou. 5.7. Possibly volcano related? Lovely.

Edit:
only 12 kms aways from Taipei city. Wonder at what depth?


#15

I did not. How does one sign up for this?
