16Oct09 earthquake 6.4 at Jakarta
We were at the 4th floor of Mangga Dua, then D’s phone call saying got earthquake. Really? Where? When? Then, I saw the ads boards swinging around. People were screaming gempa. We rean to a big pillar, then to the staircases after the earthquake. Why it took us so long to reach the ground floor?
This is my 1st earthquake in 2009, but not my first or second in this life. What has happened to our earth?

Below are from news Bernama:
According to the Indonesian Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, the earthquake struck approximately 42km west of Ujong Kulon, off Java Island and 10km under the seabed.

Although the agency verified that there was no tsunami threat, today’s quake would probably be followed by other quakes and tremors as it was not linked to the 7.9-magnituide earthquake that hit West Sumatra on Sept 30.
