We Just Got Hit By An Earthquake!

Alnesh and I were looking at something on his office computer right now, and the blinds started moving and hitting the glass.  We looked up to see if the air conditioning was blowing fast or something, and then he realized it was an earthquake.  We looked outside and the building was swaying.  Everybody felt dizzy.  Lasted at least 15 seconds.  Apparently it was a 6.7 quake, 80 kilometres below the water off of Vancouver Island.  Cheers!

Near Coal Harbour...on Pender between Thurlow and Bute.  We are on the 16th floor and we could see our building swaying a bit relative to the building across from us.  My brother felt it in his office building near Metrotown, but my Mom did not feel it at her clothing store in Surrey.  I was actually surprised it was 6.4...it didn't feel that bad.  I can only imagine what 7.4 must feel like at 32 times more force.  Cheers!
