This was the strongest i felt in my life, it was ridiculous in the West. Damn thing didn't want to stop and kept getting stronger. I ended up on the lawn outside, along with all my neighbours.

What?!!!


Not for us at least, more like Venezuela. If the epicenter of a 7.3 was on Trinidad coast it would have been though- we would have gone the way of Haiti in 2010!
This earthqukae was also pretty deep compared to the Haiti one. USGS had a depth of over 100kms at one point.

The Richter scale is logarithmic, which means that a 9 might be 100 times strong er. That would have collapsed your house and killed you.

For me it was very strong, was in POS on the sixth floor of a building when it started, first gentle, then stronger. I went under a desk when I thought it was over, it started to get even stronger! Was telling ah coworker nearby to duck under too.

Checked the security cam footage. Lasted a minute and a half and intensified toward the end. The car was dancing about like a lowrider and the 1000 gal tank stayed swaying a good 15 seconds after the tremor was done.

LoL no eh. Most cars would have driven off. The engine, drivetrain and suspension weren't hit. That's all you need.
Dare I say, even a Tiida would have driven off

My point, people telling me it felt stronger than a 7, please what we felt was probably how the epicentre of a 6 feels at most.

The Richter scale is exponential. Difference between a 7.0 to a 6.9 isn't the same as a 6.9 to 6.8

Also the depth and epicenter for Haiti was far worse than today.

Just observing people's reactions...it was funny how some self-professed atheists miraculously found God around 5:31 p.m. yesterday...:lol: Just goes to show how they does only be on sh!t to "prove a point". Doh worry, they go be back to normal in a few days.

Then of course there are the zealots who were convinced that yesterday's event was a warning of the impending rapture, imploring people to repent because "God is coming, God is coming".

Many however just thankful to be alive. Whether or not we as a people gonna make changes going forward remains to be seen. Doh hold yuh breath though...:|
