Quito's earthquakes. Quito, Ecuador. August 2014.

From Friday, August 8, to Tuesday, August 12, we had two earthquakes in Quito. 
First one, on Friday - magnitude 3.4, second, on Tuesday, had magnitude 5.1 and the second one also set off aftershocks.
The second one lasted many seconds. There was a tremble, the walls and furniture were shaking quite strong, stuff were falling from the shelves.  My dog was very disturbed.

Right now (Tuesday, August 12 at 5:00 p.m.) the sky is grey with dust in Quito. It would be sunny, but there are dust clouds everywhere.
