Update Wednesday

Hey everyone its update wednesday! Well big news today, we had a giant tremor this morning around 7:32 A.M. and my God was it rough! My guess it was around 6.3 - 6.4 and it lasted nearly a minute, or it just seemed that long.

I sent an sms about it a few minutes after the occurance but it doesn't seem to be posted so I dont think it made it over the border. Angelo / Peter, kindly look into that.

Anyway, Evacuee Trust Complex rattled so work was cancelled. Schools have been cancelled since last week until th 24th, but I believe that will be pushed forward again too. This is becoming a real nuisance and unfortunately we are not becoming numb to the tremors.

Just when they started becoming small and insignificant, we had to get our knickers in a twist!

Thanks for the up to date info. How much aid is getting to you from overseas now?

so far I personally have not received any aid from abroad, but I believe it is coming in large amounts, not sure where and through who since I am working with some very involved ngo's locally in affected areas.

It may not seem like it now, but eventually you get used to it. I've lived in Berkeley, right on a fault line, for over 25 years. The most important thing is to have charcoal ready, so you can barbecue. 8)

Chin up, Zohare. When the earth quakes, make beverages that are shaken, not stirred.

Meanwhile, is there anything that you personally need? It would be very embaressing for us to help the world, but neglect our own membership!
