An earthquake better than approximately 6.0 could be felt even interior the highrises. they are designed to flex and bend in earthquakes and extreme winds, yet they are not completely insulated from the stream. the folk on the astounding flooring could sense the main stream laterally.

YES I felt it. It took me a little while to realize what was happening. Hope there are no aftershocks.
