Managed to sleep through this..

There was an earthquake nearly 5 on the Richter scale in the South of Sweden early this morning. I was actually awake around 4.30 a.m. (to feed Hz) and then again around 5 my neighbours start making a bit of noise when they get up for the day. I must have gone back to a deep sleep by the time it happened (6.20 a.m.). Or maybe it wasn't so strong where we are, S noted none of his lego had toppled off his shelves and it's quite delicately stored there. He was quite annoyed we'd missed it as all his classfellows and our friends in the other town were woken by it.
'Nothing interesting ever happens here', he said.
Well, true, if having earthquakes, people jumping off balconies to their death, mosques being raided and cars set on fire, is interesting.
I suppose it would have been something to witness the biggest earthquake Sweden's had in a long time

Assalamu alaykum sis,
I took my kids to experience an 'earthquake' at the science Museum. It's just a simulator of the Earthquake that stroke Japan some years ago and killed so many people. I think it was magnitude 8.0
My 5 year old still very shocked by.
This is what happened in 1997 near where I used to live with my family back in Italy. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=u1Fer3yMo5I It's very scared, we didn;t sleep for weeks. Allah Akbar!
