Earthquake Leaves Thailand Shaken and Stirred

Asia USGS 2 Bangkok office workers were awoken from their mid-afternoon drowsiness by an earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale. 

Preliminary reports from the United States Geological Survey put the earthquake’s epicenter at the junction of the Laos, Burma and Thai borders.  It struck at 3:56 pm local time (4:56 am EDT).

While there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, several office buildings were evacuated and inspected before workers were allowed back in.

A typical Californian, I sat working in my 25th story apartment, completely unaware of the shaking.
