Breaking News 6.1 Magnitude Earthquake in Turkey

Five minutes ago the 500+ year old building I live in trembled. I got on twitter and facebook and preliminary reports are coming in that it was felt as far away as Izmir and Bulgaria. No damage that I’ve seen so far, but we will see. That’s a hell of a range to be felt when you consider the Marmara Sea lies between Izmir and Istanbul and quite a bit of territory between Bulgaria and Istanbul. Here is a small map to give you some idea.

Maybe it’s the rapture. :) One thing for sure, I’m not going anywhere.
