Poetically, the earthquake was described as though the earth itself had cracked asunder. The event in general was very brief, lasting only a minute and scarcely more than that. There were no warning signs beforehand, no storms in the sky (an unusual event in itself). In the aftermath, the chasm home of the Weinadi was nearly destroyed, with the stone walls having compressed almost half a meter in measurable terms. Smoke filled the sky, and dust from the rubble of fallen things. The most vivid visual described is the splintering of the Dome. The great panels that compose the shell were cracked, and in some places missing entirely. Within was chaos. People struggled to find an enclosure to protect them from the toxic air in time to survive, which was no longer an easy task thanks to the damage.
The Upheaval happened in the Agaridian Plains.
