CHIANG MAI, Thailand (Reuters) – A large 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Myanmar near the border with northern Thailand on Thursday, killing a woman and shaking buildings in three big cities.
People fled their homes in panic and tremors were felt in Bangkok, central Myanmar and as far away as the Vietnamese capital Hanoi, leading to the evacuation of several tall buildings and offices.
Police in Mae Sai in Thailand’s northernmost province of Chiang Rai said a woman had been killed when a wall of her house collapsed. Hospital officials said there were no other deaths or injuries reported in the province.

In my previous post, which I have posted just 5-6 hours back, I have mentioned that the direction of Seismic pulses being noticed by me have reversed and now it moving from South to East.
After that post I went for lunch and saw news on TV about 8.8 magnitude Earthquake struck in Japan. While I was watching the news videos goose bumps started cropping on my body. The news videos of Earthquake was nothing less terrifying to believe that we are seeing end of world kind of movie. This can happen anywhere. May God save us from such devastation. Do you still think Climate change debate was b.s.?

In my previous post, I have written that, an Earthquake might strik India within a span of 12 hours, but there was none and we must thank god for this. The Seismic pulses I felt, were of a significant intensity ones and had a distinct direction. It was felt for a duration of more than 40 seconds and reoccurance was there with in 2 minutes. So everynight, I had prepred my emergency wallet, which comprises of cash, cellphone, credit/debit cards, anti inflamatory drug and some extra cloths nearby. In case of any earthquake, these are the minimum things I do consider important to grab along while rushing out to open space outside building area and I think everyone can follow this. A bottel of fresh potable water is also a must. I have been cheking with google news page for any news about earthgquakes in India within last 24 hours but found nothing listed there, so I asume there was none and I haven’t felt another seismic tremor since last I posted on twitter…All is well here.. Thank God!!
