Yep...felt it quite strongly in Dubai Marina, which was accentuated in my 45-storey slender, earthquake-proof (so they say) high rise. My friend thought for a moment that it might have been the result of a runaway black hole being created at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland today.

Often wondered if they get a 9+ on the Richter scale coastal earthquake at Bander Abbas in Iran, if the liquefaction of the sand beneath the Palms would cause some sinking of the villas there.

Jeez...there are so many earthquake threads BUT Inse was first to report !

You should think about writing a book...It'll then go on to be a best seller...And after that, they'll make a movie...And then you'll be mega rich and mega famous and start doing alcohol and drugs...
I don't think you should write a book...

If it's got the word 'liquefaction' in it, it'll sell by the truckload.......
