Taipei: Earthquake

Woke up a while this morning with a little trembling. Felt the pictures on the wall move a bit, and 10 seconds later it was back to normal. Didn’t think too much of it. Did a search on the quake this morning and this is what I got!

Anyway, it was not as big as the last one I felt some time back. This one lasted really quickly.
