    Yikes – didn’t realize the Middle East was earthquake -prone – glad all are safe around you. We had earthquakes (small ones) quite often when I lived in Taiwan as a kid. Nothing more than a slight feeling that you were off balance, or a swinging cord on the windowblinds. I always thought it felt kind of cool, but at that age I had no idea what devastation a real earthquake could cause.

    • I think the UAE isn’t considered high risk when it comes to earthquakes, but there’s a fault line running along Iran’s coast. Still, i wouldn’t have wanted to be up the Burj Khalifa when it happened! I’m sure I would have thought the same thing in Taiwan – fascinating description.

  2. I was on the Sheikh Zayed Rd at the time so didnt feel anything but friends in JLT / Barsha said they felt the earth move! scary …

    I am out of town right now, but I do know how it feels like, because the last couple of times it happened I felt it very clearly, which wasn’t pleasant!
