Thermals above - Tremors below ...

Quite an interesting morning ...

Rather busy work wise, and a warm humid day due to cloud cover high above. Then at 12:25pm we had an Earth tremor.

It was a biggie. I was talking with friends, and we all looked at each other as if to say 'Did you feel that'. Its the first time I have been standing up, and had the sensation that I had lost my balance. It was not just me, all three of us ...

The Earthquake itself took place under the sea bed very near to the Greek island of Lemnos. Its been reported as a Mag 6.4 with a Mag 5 aftershock. So far we have 1 reported injured person in Greece, in Lemnos and appx. 100 - 120 injured people already in Turkey.

SWMBO was down near the airport, at a childrens party. the glasses were shaking. The mums saying look at that ...

On the plus side we watched a buzzard, soaring on thermals, a short while later ...
