I woke up, the bed was trembling. I thought it was just me, for some reason. But the windows, they wouldn’t stop rattling and rattling….I got of bed, still in a daze, and started walking towards the door. The ground wouldn’t stop trembling and I was completely confused and disoriented – I hadn’t slept properly for three days. I couldn’t figure anything out, so I went back to sleep.

Woke up half an hour later to find out THIS. it was a 7.6!

I thought Lahore never got earthquakes! Karachi’s meant to! Living in Karachi, I remember many earthquake drills, and usually being very scared but also very very thrilled at the idea of one. But man…
Now, the maasi(maid) just got here, and is telling tales of how people started praying when it happened and wouldn’t stop wouldn’t stop.

Everyone’s completely confused and worried – I’m getting messages just proclaiming – EARTHQUAKE, and people are startling me on msn. Hope everyone’s ok.
PS – one of my friends found out from the associated press that the epicentre was “60mi NNE of Islamabad, 6mi deep”
