Earthquake! (5.9, Northern Sumatra)

[update - final] It's classified as 'moderate', no casualties reported from the region so far. Good night and be safe folks.

[update] 19-MAY-2008 14:26:45 1.65 99.18 5.9 11.6km depth NORTHERN SUMATERA, INDONESIA

Felt another quake. This one lasted about 30 seconds, but not as strong as the previous episodes. Probably centered in Indonesia - Sumatra since previously we felt quakes only from that region (from Kajang, KL) . Waiting for Iris now.

Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
