I'm currently sitting at my desk on a 5th floor in a South Florida office building, as I was earlier this morning when I felt the building sway slightly. It wasn't continuous and the building swayed slightly one way and stopped. The sway was so subtle that others in the office didn't notice it (either walking or moving at their desk). Though, others did notice, corroborating my observations.
Additionally, I've spoken with more of my peers and they've stated that the building has swayed stronger than what I experienced this morning.
I 'm somewhat concerned regarding the overall integrity of the building, its foundation and whether or not this is normal.
- Is it normal for a 6 story building to sway, in Florida on a calm day?
- What could be causing this effect?
- What steps should I take in order to get the issue/issues addressed?
- Should I be concerned?
