Earthquake!

About 5 minutes ago, at about 9:05 pm Korean Time, there was a fairly sudden and noticeable earthquake along the East Coast here. We felt it quite sudden and strong in our house on the tenth floor for about 2 seconds. My parents-in law who live in Geojin, bout 40km up the coast from Sokcho, also felt it there.
This is my first earthquake--it felt as if a train had gone by 10 meters from our door.

Hopefully it will be the last one you experience, too. Good thing it didn't damage your home.

Apparently thiswas the 3rd largest earthquake on record in Korea. The epicenter was about 30 km. east of Gangneung, which is about 70 km sout of here. No one was hurt, though.

Being from California, earthquakes don't even faze me anymore. Did you get the pictures I sent from Emma's wedding?
