Our house (41st floor currently) was shaking again today, at about 21:50 local time. There had been couple of quakes (5.3 according to USGS) near Dali earlier today.

From what I here from local news, a 6.4 near Dali, though Western news sites are showing 6.

In social media circles, folks shaken up in Dali are afraid to return to higher buildings but hanging around on ground floor.

There was a stronger quake (7.3) just a few hours ago in southern Qinghai.

Possibly more movement on the same plate?
