This is the second one I have missed! The last was in the late eighties. I didn’t notice a thing! I did notice however that workmen were outside our house repairing the temporary traffic lights. I’d assumed that a passing car had knocked them down, but it was probably the earthquake.
Update: I guess being below ground (in the cellar) when it happened may explain why I didn’t feel it.
Update: 30/09/2002 I’m getting so many hits on this post which hasn’t anything useful to say that I’m adding in this link to the story from the BBC news site.
