Today, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake shook the countries of Myanmar (also known as Burma) and Thailand. Both countries reside in Southeast Asia.

Office buildings in major cities were shook up during the earthquake, which caused mass evacuations of several surrounding buildings. Several people actually went into panic fearing that buildings would collapse. Yahoo News interviewed a civilian that stated, “In 40 years, I never felt an earthquake this strong. A glass broke, I had to hold on to a pillar.”

Thankfully, the central part of the earthquake had struck in a sparsely populated area, otherwise the damage could have been more critical. The surrounding areas are expected to have aftershocks throughout the next couple days. So far, they have experience about ten of them.
