poor people...
you say that, but there was a quake here 2 years ago. I remember I was in bed and felt it for a short time.

In 2001 there was a big one in Bargoed, South Wales, UK of 5.4. Thats big for us in Wales. I felt it 15 miles away in Cardiff it woke me up!

Oh, and the cracks are now beginning to show in some properties in Cardiff. I live in a Block of flats and all the flats now have cracks in them...

Interesting read. How valid the assumptions are, I haven't a clue. I do know that there is nothing man can do about it except help the victims recover.

Big aftershocks!

Quote:
An aftershock measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale struck late Wednesday following two aftershocks measuring 6.0 and 5.9 respectively earlier in the day.

By them self, these would be considered major quakes.

More aftershocks, new tsunami warning spur panic in Chile

Wow! My wife has relatives in that part of Cuba. I hope all is well with them. We have no way of contacting them to find out.

But based on the strength, and not knowing where the epicenter was, it occurred to me it could be a bad quake somewhere if...
