Well it was a tremor, or an aftershock? The table shook and the bottles of water on it looked very unsettled. I thought wrongly when we moved here that we may be out of the earthquake zone.

Update: again just before midnight the house shook several times in a 5 minute period, after investigation I found this information this morning

We had a Magnitude 3.5 which seemed more than the supposedly Magnitude 5 we experienced this morning.
I was thinking Tsunami!! and how the hell will they notify us of impending danger. The village has a loudspeaker system that chimes at 6am 11.30am 4pm and 5pm with some very strange chimes more on that later.  I would hope they could put it to good use should we need to be warned on imminent danger.
