Discussing today¨s Puny Earthquake

Todays shaker.. More like 2 seconds. It shook your house?_ If I hadn´t been lying quietly in bed I wouldn´t have felt it. Looks like you´re not from California where these happen almost daily. BTW I am a PhD geologist. As far as a major quake, Medellin is one of the safest places anywhere around the Pacific because of its massive basement rock structure. Disclaimer...But then again, Mother Nature can be a bitch. Seriously the odds are NOTHING compared to anywhere else in the Circum Pacific for a destructive quake. . Check out my article from a Few years ago in¨MEDELLIN lIVING¨. Natural disasters simply are not a way of life here. We are very lucky and wise to have chosen Medellin.
