dezembro é bom para os terramotos, que se sentem muito melhor num apartamento no primeiro andar do que numa casita térrea. pior, é que nem o que me fez sair de casa a correr, nem o que me fez ficar parado a meio de uma conversa no cast away para perceber se alguém me estava a mexer na cadeira, nem o que me fez sentir mareado estavam reportados. só os outros dois é que estavam.

Strong quake hits East Timor, no damage reported

JAKARTA: A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off East Timor on Saturday,
but there was no threat of a tsunami and no immediate word of damage,
an official from Indonesia’s meteorology office said.

The quake hit at 3:03 pm local time (0703 GMT) at sea, about 243
kilometres (151 miles) northwest of the capital Dili, at a depth of
120 kilometres, according to a statement from the Meteorological and
Geophysics Agency.

A tsunami alert was not issued. “There are no reports of damage,”
agency staff member Edi Kusuma said, adding that the quake would
likely have not been felt on land as it occurred so deeply beneath the
seabed.

“Six-magnitude quakes that happen very deeply usually cannot be felt,”
he said.

Indonesia and East Timor sit on the Pacific Ring of Fire, where
continental plates meet, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.

Olá Mmux!
bem me lembro de alguns sustos que apanhei quando aí cheguei. Depois, a gente habitua-se…
Aproveito a oportunidade para te desejar um Feliz Natal e óptimo Ano Novo bem como para aqueles que visitam o teu blog, a maioria dos quais tive o prazer de conhecer nas noitadas de Díli.
Um grande abraço.
