A 6.0 magnitude earthquake in Malaysia does not happen very often. How are our friends from Sabah? We checked up on them to find out:
A majority of people shared that they were woken up by strong tremors. It was shocking.
It was the same on WhatsApp - group chats filled with confirmations that it wasn't just a dream
Some learnt that they possess the ability to sleep right through an earthquake
For one person, this morning's trip to the toilet was definitely memorable
A video uploaded from Facebook user Benny showed a first-hand account of people running down from the foot of Mount Kinabalu after hearing crackling noises
In all the calamity and chaos, this person chose to highlight something positive about the state, stating that Sabah is still the most beautiful place in Malaysia
There were one or two statuses about how the earthquake was caused by the tourists who posed nude and urinated on the mountain
Others were quick to dismiss the link, stating that the whole incident was purely based on basic science
Resourceful ones advised netizens to check their sources before sharing as some photos were not of Sabah
Safety precautions were posted in the event another earthquake struck
Sabahans who were out of town quickly advised their loved ones to stay safe
There were of course people who chose to look on the lighter side, such as this slight jibe to a football team...
For movie buffs, the earthquake quickly reminded them about San Andreas, a disaster film that was just released
For this Sabahan however, the worst part about the earthquake was that it damaged his mum's alcohol stash...
