Example text

Everyone was calm and polite and took everything in their stride. The aftershocks have been a constant at night. For several hours after the first major quake, my building felt like it was in continuous, swaying motion. You get kind of paranoid and feel like you are swaying even when nothing seems to be moving. Looking at something hanging or dangling from the ceiling or walls is a good way to tell if a quake is real or not. While I wait for aftershocks, I keep looking at that hanging ceiling-light.

When the shaking started it didn't take me long to sense that this was a Big One. Everywhere around me, equipment was rattling more and more violently and a few small things fell to the floor. I quickly convinced myself that there was no immediate danger of being hit from above and whipped out the mobile phone camera. I filmed the optical table heavily wobbling on its pneumatic vibration-damping legs, gas canisters beating against their stands, 19" racks swaying and posters in the hallway swinging synchronously from side to side.

But it kept getting stronger. The lurching started to get violent, and my windows began vibrating, and the TV started swaying and shimmying towards the edge of the sideboard. The light fixture above my head swung about. The quake kept getting more and more intense, and I wondered vaguely if I should get under the table. By then, the adrenaline had kicked in, and I felt like I was in a dream—yet the motion was all too real. Time seemed to stand still yet rush forward all at once. " Another big lurch made up my mind for me.
