Earthquake in China

I didn’t feel anything, but colleagues mentioned that the office building was swaying. Thought it was nothing big compared to what I feel in Taipei and Tokyo, but now I’ve heard there’s a 7.5 earthquake in Szechuan Province, which is far far away from here. Will have to listen to the news to see how devastating it was…
