Default Another Earthquake?

Is it another earthquake in Iran, with aftershock being felt in Dubai? My wife was evacuated from twin-towers in Deira when the building started to shake. Not as bad as last time though. Has any body else got the shakes?

Righto. It was a couple of hours ago she mentioned it.

I was surprised by the decision in her building that "due to safety concerns you can all go home early at 4:30pm". Why would they think that building is safe for most of the afternoon and then suddenly becomes dangerous after 4! Bizarre......

I felt the shakes, but it was due to a bottle of vodka and the high sugar content in Red bull, my DT's were 7.2 on the ricther scale
