Mexico City, 6.4 earthquake!
I was woken up and I can't sleep. It seems everything is OK but probably there will be more earthquakes in the next hours or days.
Ciudad de México | Miércoles 30 de junio de 2010 Redacción | El Universal 02:46
Un fuerte sismo de magnitud 6.4 sacudió la madrugada del miércoles la capital mexicana y otras regiones del país.
El Servicio Sismológico Nacional dijo en su página web que la magnitud había sido de 6.4.
El movimiento telúrico que ocurrió a las 2:22 tuvo su epicentro a 120 kilómetros al oeste-suroeste de la ciudad de Oaxaca y a 355 kilómetros al sur-sureste de la Ciudad de México, informó el Servicio Geológico de Estados Unidos en su sitio de Internet.
El sismo ocurrió a una profundidad de 10 kilómetros, según la agencia, que había reportado primero una medición de 99 kilómetros.
I hope there's not much damage and everything's OK with you and your loved ones. We have had some very strong earthquakes here too in my lifetime, so I know very well what the experience is like. Take care, Morbo.
Sorry to hear that mate i hope all is well with you and your family, i shall keep a candle lit for you.
Hola Morbo, ayer contesté este mensaje, pero se ve que se me cayó la conexión
Espero que todos los tuyos estén bien, un terremoto debe ser aterrador.
I love Mexico City

The earthquake was felt in many states. Unfortunately a person passed away because the roof collapsed, that happened in Oaxaca State, about 7 hrs. by bus from me. In 1984 there were a 8.9 earthquake which was really catastrophic. My neighborhood is about 40 minutes by bus from the capital city which is the most affected when earthquaking. Indeed in 1984 just nothing happened in my neighborhood meanwhile man building collapsed in the capital.
Thanks a lot, all of you for your worrying and asking and your good wishes. .)
If the earthquake is not much - it is not interesting, and if it is too strong - it is dangerous. 6.4 - just strong enough, but not threatening! So you are happy to feel it!
I like to feel an earthquake, sufficiently strong and not threatening.
Has Mexico City had experienced stronger or more catastrophic earthquakes?
Is there something to fear when the earthquake is in Mexico City?
Si el terremoto no es mucho - no es interesante, y si es demasiado fuerte - es peligroso. 6,4 - apenas lo suficientemente fuerte, pero la amenaza de no! ¿Está contento de sentirlo!
Me gusta sentir un terremoto, lo suficientemente sólidas y amenazando no.
¿Hay que temer cuando el terremoto en la Ciudad de México?
Morbo, lo siento mucho lo que está pasando contigo. Estarán tu y tu familia en mis pensamientos y mis oraciones. Delores
Morbo, que estés seguro y sano. Igual es mi deseo para todos mis amigos allá y todos los chilangos de más. Cuídate.
Me alegro de que estés sano y no te pasara nada. ¡Qué todo salga bien, amigo!
Por favor, sigue poniéndonos al tanto de lo que pasa
I hope all is well with you and your family. Keep us posted.
Hope that is it for this time! Doesn't it seem that there are more large earthquakes lately? It is so scarey!
Oh! no otra vez! Provocó muchos daños?? No escuché nada en las noticias...
My thought are with you, Morbo. Stay safe.
