  • Monroe, USA - It has been a few weeks since I have been feeling moderate shaking under my feet. I watch my pets and they don't seemed alarmed so I am taking their cue.
  • Alanya - Lag te slapen, werd wakker van schudden in bed en trillen deur in kozijn. Tijd rond half drie snachts. Balie hotel zegt van niks te weten, heb ik gedroomd? Nooit nagedacht over aardbevingen dus lijkt me niet waarschijnlijk. Denk eerder dT het hotel liever geen ruchtbaarheid Heid heeft.
