Yes, last night we found out more news as well and it turns out that the earthquake was much more serious in parts closer to the epicenter. Sadly people died and also there was a lot of destruction.
We were fortunate enough to be far enough from the center and also people here in the city are very used to this and as long as there is no damage (people or buildings) they really don't care. I mean 10 minutes after the quake it was life as usual and that helped us a bit to not linger in the quake feeling (for me was the biggest in my life).

I was discussing yesterday with Paul (rtwpaul) in Antigua and he said something similar that people there just went outside, waited it out and that was it, back to normal. No panic no nothing. So that was good.
