Late Night Earthquake

Had a good jolt at around 2:15am, right here in Islamabad. Quakes are usually quite small, but this one was comparable to some of the scarier ones in Tokyo during the last couple of years.

What makes ’em really frightening here is that most buildings are badly designed (if designed at all) and either use too much or too little of the required materials. Forget about being built to withstand e@rthquakes.Maybe that’s why I could hear rumbling from the houses around me.
