Aftershocks

I may have missed the earthquake on Tuesday (which I've seen reported anywhere from 7.4-7.8), but I haven't missed out completely on all the rumblings. I returned to the DF on Thursday and within maybe thirty minutes of arriving at my apartment I experienced a small aftershock (4.8). I noticed the necklaces hanging on my door start to sway and thought... hey, I remember this. I felt the room move for a second and then it was gone. According to Mexico's National Seismological Service, as of 11:30am today there had been 132 aftershocks from Tuesday's earthquake (though I've only felt the one).
