Tremors

we're OK!

sunny 31 °C

An earthquake hit Bali this morning, approximately 7am Bali time. Reports indicate that the quake measured between 5.8 and 6.1 on the Richter scale.

We were at the dive shop when it hit. A minor tsunami erupted from the swimming pool, all very exciting! The tremors lasted for a few seconds and everyone looked a bit confused but luckily, no-one was hurt and there was no damage to any of the surrounding buildings.

We've just come back from a couple of dives at our local reef in Sanur, and we think we heard an aftershock on the first dive whilst we were underwater! Low rumblings that sounded a bit like a big boat. Just going to check that out now on t'web.
