On July 18th, 2008 I experienced rapid tremor waves, which were of small bounds and this lasted for 3 minutes. The direction was east-South to North-west(see pic of India map, my place). I forgot………..I forgot……..wait … Yes on 16th July at 10 mins past 2 O’clock noon (IST, +5:30 GMT) I was supervising the construction job going on in our house. The laborer and brick man were fixing iron gate of stairway and as I felt the tremors, I erupted, “there is quake tremor passing under my feet, a quake will come somewhere on Earth”. The labourer and bricklayer both first gave me a look then smiled and said we are not feeling anything. I just left that place calmly and forgot to log this for a record. That is weird and I behave like this, always. Not just strangers my parents also scowl at me, whenever, I erupt such things abruptly. And scowling is what stands Indians apart from crowed (Jug Suraya’s observation) or scientifically putting it like this. “Frowning is commonly found pattern of behaviour among Indians” and that is jugglery of vocabulary.
First it was Japan and now it rocked California and low intensity tremors were also reported in Mumbai (Bombay, India ). California and Japan are in close vicinity on Earth Glob.
A moderate earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.6 struck Northern California on Tuesday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake’s epicenter was 5.7 miles below the Earth’s surface.
The quake’s epicenter was about five miles north-northeast of Alum Rock, California, and nine miles northeast of San Jose City Hall, the USGS said. It hit at 8:04 p.m. (11:04 p.m. ET) Tuesday.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties
Scowling : A look of anger or frowning disapproval.
Frowning is giving a straight look like its usually found written on rear of vehicles in India “KEEP Distance”.
