another earthquake

I didn’t even consider that Kyrgyzstan was prone to earthquakes when I decided to move here. I don’t know if that would have changed my mind, but a lot of rumors (and some legitimate warnings) seem to be floating around now that “the big one” will strike in the next year or so.

There was another earthquake this morning, 5.4 magnitude, originating in southeastern Kazakhstan. It felt the same to me as the last one, as in, a slight and extended swaying.

It wasn’t big enough to wake a sleeping Mamajan.

This makes me think I should set up an earthquake counter in my sidebar. We’re up to three already that I’ve felt since I moved to Bishkek.
