    Anyone else in BKK feel that Earth tremor?

    9pm Thurs 24th March.

    Condo was swaying for about 15 seconds.

    No glasses of water or anything else to go 'slosh' to really notice it though.

    Tsunami in the khlongs on the way, get your Dettol ready.

    I did in Udon. My chair was wobbling from side to side. The Midget suggested it was the wind (I'm in the house).

    I've just been looking to see if there was a quake reported on one of the 'real-time' sites, but could find nowt.

    Perhaps stronger up North. Don't think it was that strong down here. Just a wee bit wobbly 15 stories up. People still going about their business on the street. Felt the same in Chiang Mai a few years ago that was a small EQ in Northern Laos.

    I just told the USGS about it as their instruments don't seem to be very good.

    Tiz certainly Earthquake season. Just googling info and:

    3.3 Richter quake hit Chiang Mai 2nd March, and a 5.4 Richter EQ injured 5 Burmese in Yunnan, China on the 10th.

    Christchurch... Japan., now Burma.

    We had a few things shake on the dinner table in BKK. Mrs. Chi said it was felt the most in Chiang Mai.

    Don't be alarmed it's just the Burmese testing their non existent device.

    Managed to remember my dressing gown before going out into the garden. Dogs running around, water sloshing in the pond. Neighbours in the streets on their mobiles.

    I was having a bit of a session with the wife, but we were using a firm mattress so don't think that we are to blame
