Hope the tremors have stopped

The situation is much better today after the panic and evacuations yesterday. The problem was magnified when people decided to send warning sms messages in the night, informing others of a bigger earthquake coming after the tremors. Many had to spend most part of the night, in this chilly weather outside their houses with children.

The local government has now realized that most tall buildings in Nairobi cannot with stand a strong earthquake and have requested for inspection. I thought this had been done after some buildings collapsed. It is very inefficient of them to act only when a disaster strikes or is about to strike.

People should stop sending silly messages of things they have no tangible evidence
