Just had another aftershock about 5 minutes ago(5.9). One bump and two shakes.

I was stopped at a red light last night when the major quake hit (6.7 according to local authorities and 7.2 to American and Japanese reports)and at first I thought that my bike was idling funny. Then I realized that it was the street that was moving. Then people came running out into the street. Then, when everyone started going back inside, the next one hit, weaker, but closer. This was a 6.4, 30 km to our south. Again, I was dodging people running into the streets. The joys of living in a seismically active area. Mind you this is the first we've had since early spring.

Only 3 people were killed, when a house collapsed in Pingtung, about 40 km away. However , I no longer plan on being one of the first to use the new high speed rail now. a slight wow at 300 kph is not my idea of fun.

The earthquake Gods seem to relish in releasing their fury on Christmas Eve.

Glad you and your family are okay. Was there much damage?

A few water pipes, some fires at couple of factories but nothing much to speak of.
