Earthquake hits north west Sumatra again! I used to feel the tremors everytime there is an earthquake near by the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia but this time not.
My colleagues used to call me the earthquake sensor because I’m always the one who feel the tremors. The earthquake struck at 8.52am local time (0152 GMT). At that time, I was driving my way heading to my office at Kuala Lumpur. Maybe I was in the car so I didn’t feel the earth was shaking.
From Jakarta, AP reports that the earthquake struck at 8.52am local time (0152 GMT), and rocked Indonesia’s Sumatra and Nias islands, shaking buildings and panicking residents jittery from six months of powerful tremblors.
Luckily the earthquake did not trigger tsunami and there were no reports of damage as a result of the quake.
