No Joke. Check it out. http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/7.0_magnitude_earthquake_strikes_off_Haitian_coast
My very first one. I was tutoring 2 Taiwanese students in an apartment on the 8th floor when it happened. It was big but it was so far away that the effects weren’t too great in Santo Domingo. Both of the students looked and me in shock! I thought it was fake and that I was just getting sick or something.
It felt like you were on the Mackinaw bridge on a very windy day. Some of the things in the apartment swayed, but nothing fell.
It was a 7.0 earthquake that occurred off the coast of Haiti.
Marvin was tutoring 2 Dominican students at the house and one of them screamed and jumped on the couch until the shaking stopped.
All in all it was awesome. There are still some residual aftershocks (that I can’t feel) and after each one Marvin says he is going to hurl. He is a little dramatic.
