I thought I was going to die: In the earthquake

Oh, boy!  What an experience and one never to forget.  On August 21, 2018, I
honestly felt that these were my last moments.

Here I was, standing not too far away from Mom at around dinnertime when the
earthquake struck.  It lasted for around 90 seconds and was a 6.9 on the Richter scale.

No, I could not see anything around me but I knew darn well that everything was shaking. From our fridge to glasses and dishes and other things around us.  Mom later told me that our fridge started to dance and that for a split second she thought of going to stand by it to try and stop it from shaking.

As someone who is vision impaired, it is indeed a very strange experience to feel everything shaking and not knowing anything else.  For one moment I thought that we would end up in the sea but thank God that did not happen.
