We felt a minor tremor of the earth , this is the first time I experienced something like that. The earthwork was 2-3 seconds, but was violent . Will there be an earthquake now? We live on the second floor of our house with four floors . Is it going to collapse if there is an earthquake ?
I'm in Brazil now, but when I get home to see the damage.
If I were you I would leave the computer or laptop and just entered a closet with soft clothes , pillows or blankets . second floor is safe for a 4-storey apartment
dont panic! If there is no significant structural damage around you then dont stress. Just remember next time to be calm and stand under the nearest doorway or strong wooden table and hold onto the legs. I just got the news myself on the quake and its only a 5.8 which generally isnt enough to cause major damage, so dont stress ok! Just be prepared for aftershocks which will be tiny tremors following the first quake. We experiecne earthquakes here all the time in New Zealand that are far bigger, so dont let it stress you out!
The ground shaking was the earthquake. I don't know the structural strength of your apartment building, but it should be built to codes, being able to withstand an earthquake to some degree. It could collapse if a quake was of sufficient strength.
