ReiChang Earthquake!

Saturday night at 11:20pm, while sitting on the bed nursing Selah, I felt the bed suddenly rattle hard against the concrete wall. I wasn’t sure what happened… it was late and I was tired so I thought I might have imagined it all.

After Selah was back in bed, I walked into the living room, looked out the window, and saw lots of neighbors outside. That’s when I realized – we just had an earthquake!

Hubs looked online but could not find any information.

Even though he was showered and ready for bed, he got dressed, grabbed a tray full of homemade mooncakes and went outside to talk with some of the people who live in the neighborhood.

The Chinese are a bit jittery about earthquakes, especially in this area, since they’ve experienced the Sichuan earthquake in 2008 and a smaller ReiChang earthquake in 2005.

About an hour of the earthquake, Hubs was able to find some information online.
