earthquake update

we’re back to work this morning, and everyone’s still talking about the tremors UAE felt yesterday afternoon. people are sharing stories of their experiences when they felt the world spinning, while some are claiming they didn’t feel a thing. i’m just relieved no one was hurt, and that everyone got out of the buildings safely.

Gulf News has another article about the quake, and has focused its story on the DIFC. it appears that the quake was only felt on some parts of Dubai, particularly on the long stretch of Sheikh Zayed Road. i dunno, are we sitting on a fault line?

hi shelly,
buti na lang it wasn't that strong, no? and buti na lang horizontal earthquake force so it's not that dangerous. let's just be alert na lang all the time.
