    Well I didnt even felt it but guess what it was Breaking news of the time. I remember in november 2005 a mild tremor of 4.2 or soemthing aliek intensity was felt in areas around clifrin/sea karachi and ppl came out and spent the nite out. We laughed at this since islamabad was getting daily shocks of 6.8//6/6.5/7.2 several (and I meant it) time a day … that went on for some 2+ months.
