    One house has collapsed, possibly people trapped inside. And train derailed.

    Packing to move house (landlord selling my flat...sigh). Need the elevator to carry stuff down to the garbage room in the basement, also to my bike (new flat is close) to haul a few loads of stuff I don't feel like packing like dishes...so been home all weekend, there were two large ones (last night and this afternoon) and any number of aftershocks. My cat, already not appreciating packing, ran like anything after the last one this afternoon (not sure where he thinks he can go...). Annoying enough to move house, earthquake is just an extra bonus for me...

    A bridge collapsed near the epicenter, a couple of people fell off, but conscious when brought to the hospital...

    Why do fish start jumping after a quake?

    This also happened here in China, people say fish & bats are even a better indicator of an impending disaster than their government.

    Gives me shivers just watching the video
