At about 9.40am on today (25 February), many of us felt slight tremor in our office or at home.

At first, the writer thought that it was just vertigo but it can’t be that everyone else in the office had vertigo at the same time. So after looking up on Twitter, we realised that it is an actual earthquake!

From the tweets and comments, people in many different areas felt it. We have had people in Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Kota Damansara, Mont Kiara and Seremban telling us about it.

A quick check on the Malaysian Meteorological Department’s post on Facebook shows that a wider area of coverage which includes Klang, Bangi, Nilai, Batu Caves, Cyberjaya, Kuala Langat and even in Melaka.

MET Malaysia confirmed in another post that the tremors were felt in Selangor, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor. There are currently no tsunami threats.
