“3baid, Did You Feel That?!”

My cousin just IMed me saying he literally felt an earthquake a mere few minutes ago (~2 AM) that “only caused a few books on the shelf to fall”. His parents called the 777 emergency line and according to their response, it’s been detected by people around these areas:

  • Andalous
  • 3deliya
  • Kaifan
  • 9ba7 Al-Na9er

Details are still unknown so if you’ve experienced anything as such, comment here!

Updated Areas:

  • Salwa
  • Rumaithiya
  • Qurtoba/Surra/South Surra (?)
  • Mishref
  • Abbasiya
  • Sabah Al-Salem
  • Salmiya

  1. Really?! An earthquake in q8? *shudders* I don’t like earthquakes- they’re scary. I had a very very bad experience with earthquakes when I was tiny & in Europe, it was so huge back then they dragged us out of schools and performed serious safety measures.

  2. I didn’t feel it, probably cause I was fast asleep. Thanks for the update and links! I’m designating you the head of the EQRT (Emergency Quick Response Team)!

  3. I think I slept at around 1:30 :( Damn, I missed it.

    I honestly didn’t feel a thing here in Yarmouk, but perhaps I was already dreaming of flying sheep at the time.

  4. the link you posted proves there was. I gotta check with my bro he is in Mishref. Even it’s small, it is something new in Kuwait and usually signs of bigger things to come, God forbid.

  5. Excellent coverage 3baid. I’m not in Kuwait right now but I’ll call my parents tomorrow morning and check if they felt or something. They live in South Surra…
