Earthquakes 2007

Let me be the first to open a thread about Earthquakes 2007.

Aren’t you supposed to wait for the first quake?

I felt the earth move last night. Does that count?

CWB data to prove it …

Shaking in Nankang.

Just felt something here in Changhua.

Aye, 17th floor Taipei was rolling.

Our office merely creaked…

hey Buttercup I am also on the 17th floor but a different building. Also felt it wobble a little but thought it might be that nip I had for breakfast kicking in. :laughing:

Taipei districts should be named vertically, not horizontally, don’t you think?

Wow. Didn’t feel a thing in NeiHu (19th floor).

7th floor in XiZhi and I felt it, although my boss didn’t…
Guess he’s been here way too long :wink:

There was a discernable swaying on the 3rd floor in Nangang, Taipei.

Oh, yes I felt it too … nice swaying … 14th floor :slight_smile:

What are the numbers … never mind, get them myself

2007-01-16 11:10:00 5.4 002 23.84N 122.43E, i.e. 85.1 km E of Hualien City

was that really a 1 in Taipei? as usual my wife (local) didn’t notice a thing.

OTOH, my frogs started surfing in their tank. OK, so the waves were small, but they’re just beginners, that’s all they could handle.

ah buttercup, i see you have changed your sig… about time, that last one had me feeling vaguely uncomfortable, even though i don’t wear white underpants, stained or not.

Did I just feel something?

Yup, small one just now

Me too, at home in Muzha…was swaying a bit. Small though.

That was another one off of Hualien = 5.0

Notice the trend for the past few, all happening around* afternoon…strange

*Edited because some people are picky :wink:
