Lot of overloaded washing machines in UAE to cope with the soiled underwear but I believe no damage or injury directly related to the shaking.

It was touch and go, Bob. For a minute, I thought I'd spill my latte.

Latte spillage? Dear God, man! A disaster of the most monumental kind!

Never felt a thing, was at the Greens when it happened. Drove through TECOM, people all over the place, but the men were still cleaning windows, bizarre.

Really shaky in Doha city centre, my tower shook quite a bit - think the one last week loosened the foundations more than a bit! Loosened my bowels anyway...

Does anybody know if this reported occurrence is true, as I cannot imagine how a complete mall evacuation could be safely organised?:ohmy:

"The grandiose Dubai Mall was completely evacuated, according to employees who said people were also cleared from towers in Downtown Dubai, home to the world's tallest building."
