I'm glad everything is ok and that it wasn't very strong.

It just gave everyone something to talk about. Most people weren't freaked out and some have been joking about it. They've set up a "Dekalb/Sycamore Relief Fund" for all the excess damages that have been done. They expect they should need about $1 to cover the total cost.

Some people even slept through it. :P

2 earthquakes

Disaster! Dual earthquakes hit the rural region of Myanmar on Thurs morning. Though officially the Union of Myanmar, it's also often known as Burma. Here is the proof: Double earthquakes hit Union of Myanmar, aka Burma The 6.8 and 4.8 magnitude earthquakes occurred close to Myanmar’s border with China and Thailand. These earthquakes were very shallow, however won't trigger tsunamis.
