Did you feel it?

This morning there was an earthquake off the coast of Libya near the city of Misurata. You can find the technical info about it here: Earthquake Misurata

As far as I know no one was hurt and there have been no damages. In May of 2008 I wrote about an earthquake near Al-Marj and also gave a little bit of history of quakes in Libya, some of them taking thousands of lives.

Something really weird happened though. On the day of the earthquake in May of 2008 I visited a friend in an office near the Corinthia. I don't visit her very often, maybe a couple of times a year. Well guess what? I visited her today at the same office. Isn't that strange? Or maybe not... two minds meet and earthshaking stuff starts to happen. . . :)


  1. please do not visit her again :p lol

  2. Hi;

    I am from Misurata.
    I feel the quake, it was very short and nothing bad happened.

  3. LazyGirl... glad to hear that all is well, elhamdulillah!
