    I woke up this morning, log onto CS, and I saw this news!! Even before I start surfing any of the news website for my daily news reading. This is great updates. But I did not feel anything at all last night. I live in Jurong and on the 17th floor. Isn't Jurong suppose to be nearer to the quake epicenter??

    Hey, Eikin, thanks for the sms last nite. I "pigged" out until didn't feel anything. Looked out of the window and didn't find anything amiss until I tune in to CNN.

    Jus wondering...under such circumstances, shd we run to open area or hide in our bomb shelter??

    hehe, no problem lah ... me no earthquake expert, but depending on degree of the shake, there are things you can do (now that you are home alone also ) for mild shakes like last night - first thing you can do is to check that it is not just the building you are in that's shaking. if it is only one block of building, that's a sign of structural failure, better get out while there's still time. there were some emergency tips from CNA last night also, they mentioned something about switching off all the electricity and stoves to prevent fire from leaking gas pipes.

    not sure about stronger shakes (shaking of loose objects and visible building movement) think the household shelter should be strong enough (built for bombing, not sure about earthquake) but i think there are sayings that one should go underneath tables etc. that can counter falling objects, don't think that works in singapore if there's a danger of building collapse, can't imagine a chunk of concrete falling on a table, everything (plus the person below) smashed lor . at least i know the household shelter is the last to collapse

    heard that the casuality rate is not confirm yet, as some parts of Indonesia power supply cuts off thus unable to determine the exact figure.

    The epicenter of this quake is much nearer to Singapore than the Dec 26 one.. that one was off the northern tip of Sumatra, this one was in the middle

    Jurong is built on a granite formation, not marine clay, therefore no swaying.

    Yes. But it also depends on the bedrock of the location you are in. Most of the people in the west did not feel it cos the bedrock consist mainly of solid rock, which absorb the shock and energy of the quake.

    Those in the east are on marine clay which will amplify the shock and energy. I know these from watching CNA's morning interview with a professor from NUS.
