      vers 7h30, nous avons été réveillé par une secousse, puis une deuxième ( c'est ce que j'ai ressenti, mais est ce qu'il y en a eu 2??). J'ai pris ma fille et nous avons rapidement descendu les 2 étages pour nous mettre en sécurité dans le jardin. J'ai également regardé la mer pour voir si elle ne baissait pas.( j'habite sur une péninsule)
