Second tremor

A monster lurks under here

A monster lurks under here

There was a second, more violent, tremor last night – 6.1 this time.

I heard it coming across the courtyard – it was like a monster pushing itself under the house.

All the spoons hanging on hooks over the stove started jiggling. A few things fell over.

Florence was very alarmed and hid behind the sofa.

I was outside today, looking across the olive grove to the mountains, thinking about what terrible things there are underneath …

      A lot of people round here are sleeping in their cars as a safer option.

        You probably heard, it was because of the first (slighter) tremor last Wednesday that there were no deaths. People were out of their houses by the time the worse tremor came.

        Yes, I have been following the news, earthquakes are so devastating for every one, so much damage, so much suffering and often a lot of deaths….
