My First Earthquake?!

Ok, I can't believe this...earthquake tremors in Singapore! Really, our office only felt it for a few, maybe 10 seconds, like the building started to shake a little. Just a tremor, and it was gone. Apparently we don't just get a burning haze from Indonesian fires...we get the remnants of their earthquakes too. The quake was 6.6 on the Richter scale; that sounds dangerously high. Some people near Raffles Place were evacuated and others saw their apartments shake...no one injured in Singapore, but 80 dead and
hundreds injured in Sumatra
