There was a 4.1 scale earth quake in DaLingShan town Dongguan at 14:40 today.

Dongguan is in the centre of the Pearl River Delta, home to most of China’s manufacturing and export business.

The PRD region includes Guangzhou which is currently hosting the Asia Games, Hong Kong and Shenzhen where the QPI offices are located.

The epicenter was some 100km from our offices and some of us here felt a “nudge” and the blogs and instant messaging systems have been a buzz with talk.

Some of our friends in the many factories we have regular contact with in the area talk of their office windows and doors rattling, even the wife one of our colleagues woken from her afternoon nap, but fortunately no reports so far of and injuries or serious damage.

Hopefully it will stay that way, and of course we hope there are no serious aftershocks.
