EarthQuake :: 2nd Shag from the Earth?

Situation in KL

I have just called Shima in KL (to be exact Technology Park, Bukit Jalil) asking is she doing alright. Just after we hanged up, she messaged me in YM saying that she just had felt it. The 3-storey building was like moving to the left and right. This time it was shaking longer.

Situation in JB

As soon as shima lemme know about the tremor, I called Lin (MAA Tower, JB) a few times but failed. Later, i managed to call her and saying that she was evacuating the building just now and heading home.

She said this time is worse than before. It was obvious that lamp are heavily shaking. I suspected the quake is either at least 7 richter on scale or it is much nearer to JB. I myself felt a lil bit of dizziness.

As write this report, the eartquake page is yet updated.
