Powerful (like Mercalli 7) earthquaqe hit Bucharest

Romanian allnews TV station "Realitatea" just aired a live Report from Vrancea county, where the earthquake have started (all of them have the start in this region, deep at more than 150 km and go up to surface, arriving at sruface 25 second later in Bucharest) . The specialists have estimated the power to be more than 6 on Richter scale.

Fortunately, Ponor and Rosu are guests of Belu, at his Bucharest villa, which is safer than any common block. Bitang is also in Bucharest. At Deva city, the earthquaqes are less powerful and usually not so important. Romanian have big fears regarding the time frame 2004...-2008, when a "Big One"is expected. Last one, back in 1977, made more than 1500 victims and destroyed tens of blocks. For the next major earthquaqe in Bucharest, specialists said more than 40% of buildings can suffer serious damages.

Basically, if the second one will come, DO NOT use the elevators to go down if you live upstairs, keep an electric lighter handy and do NOT go back inside until is safe to do so.

Last reports said the ground is still (slowly) moving, tens of smaller replicas were reported. Experts have reported for Realitatea Tv station that the movements lasted for 10 minutes in Vrancea county (200 km North Bucharest). This night in Bucharest is also a full moon eclipse (local time 5, 24 a.m.).

Other towns, gymnastics-related, where the earthquake hit: Onesti city (town of national junior team), Bacau, Focsani (Gina Gogean hometown),
Ploiesti (Corina Ungureanu and Belu hometown), Sibiu (Sabina Cojocar hometown) and Cluj (Oana Ban hometown).

...One hour later after the earthquake have hit Bucharest, we manage to find some working phone lines. Deva city hall have no reports about any damages or victims.In Bucharest, Silvia Stroescu was already back to sleep (having university classes tomorrow),she told us that her little cat was nervous just before the earthquake, Oana Ban was (deep) sleeping in Cluj (400 km North Bucharest), the lights of Belu villa in Bucharest have remained on, Catalina and Monica were little bit scared but fine.
...Reports said that Bucharest streets were plenty of people talking about the event and trying to calm down.
