16.8.07

Earthquake.

It was yesterday at night and it caught me when I was at the mall shopping with my mum and sister. It lasted 2 minutes and had a magnitude of 7.9 (ritcher scale) according to the USGS. it was shocking, I thought everything was gonna fall, i was sorta preparing myself mentally to accept that. Everyone screaming everywhere, people was in panic. Hopefully, me and my family are alright.

I can't sleep, they said it might happen again between 2-4 am Of Thursday 16th, so yeah.

There weren't too many accidents where I live, Lima. The biggest damages were in Pisco (which is located in Ica, under Lima region). They've already registered over 70 dead people and over 600 injured.
