I've just experienced an earthquake! Copenhagen, Denmark. I thought the building was about to collapse. It was shaking for 5-10 seconds and there was weird cracking noises in the ceiling. Earthquakes are very rare here. When it happened, I didn't even think that it could be an earthquake. I thought the building was hit by a tornado or something.


Here are some fresh danish news:


Jordskælv rammer København (Eartquake hits Copenhagen)

Danmark ramt af jordskælv (Denmark hit by earthquake)

Jordskælv ryster Sjælland (Earthquake shakes up Sjælland)

Danmark ramt af jordskælv (Denmark hit by earthquake)

Jordskælv over store dele af Danmark (Earthquake in a big area of Denmark)

Sjælland ramt af jordskælv (Sjælland hit by earthquake)


They say lots and lots of people called the police. Buildings shook violently and their beds and windows, etc. Many believed like me, that their buildings were going to come down. It was a 4.7, approximately 65 km from Copenhagen, in southern Sweden.
