Earthquake in Beirut

Wow! Just felt an earthquake, right here in Beirut. No idea how strong it was, but the desk was moving and all. I've never been through this before, guess there's a first time for everything. Already, Lebanon has been witnessing two earthquakes in the last two days, possibly related to the earthquake that shook the south of Greece earlier.

UPDATE:
Naharnet reports that the earthquake that occured at 12:37 was of magnitude 5 and has damaged villages in the south of Lebanon. So far, 1 person has died and 5 have been wounded.

Are they taking any emergency measures or are they too busy to notice?
