Shaking and rocking the world

I woke up at two thirty this morning. An earthquake!! The whole place was really rocking and there was a lot of noise from our building. I could hear the noises above the racket of all the air-conditioners, so it was quite loud. My potplants rattled against the tiles and the wall. The windows rattled. Nothing broke at our place though. The cat was so frightened she urinated on the bathroom floor.

It seems that the quake originated in the Banda Sea, about 100km underground. If it had been in the top 10km there would have been a tsunami, but this was way too deep.

Here is a link from our local newspaper.
