They said it was 6.5, but even then that is still big, especially in some countries. I lived in California some years ago and I can tell you, we had to get out of bed and run outside many, many time. It really is a scary thing.



We have also been having rain for two weeks now, 7 people dead from flood waters.
Times are really a changing.

That's good, let's hope that whole area calms down again!

It does roll off the tongue Ka!

Vanuatu has several volcanoes that spurt regularly too.

Peru was hit by a 7.5

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/earthquake-peru-brazil-1.3335603

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I think it would be interesting to see how many earthquakes tend to happen around the time of the full moon. Cause the last one was almost a month ago... I wonder about the connection.

It's possible, the moon raises the land as it passes over (land tides). It's only about 15cm though.

The Pacific area is very geologically active too.

It is an interesting one Kaere. I have heard it said the New moons and Full moons correlate to large earthquakes but its been some time since I read anything more about it. Let us know what you find out Wink

Haven't done much reading on it, was pretty much waiting for a big earthquake to report along with the moon phase.

There was a 6.4 in Tres Pico, Mexico

and

A 6.3 in Vanuatu


The moon is 7 days old, end of first quarter.

...I'm just not sure the phases mean much. I mean, it's not like the moon gets bigger or anything, it's just what's brighter at any given time. Anyway... *shrugs*

Vanuatu is volcanic and prone to 'quakes. So is Mexico. Back in the 50's I think, a volcano popped up in a farmers field, not quite the harvest he had in mind I suspect.

It's a sizeable mountain now and the field has ceased to exist!

A 4.8 just off Victoria last night. My facebook peeps all chiming in that they were feeling shaking for a good minute or so but no damage. Not a big earthquake perse but they're all still clucking about it and ruffling their feathers Razz



Moon is 5 days past full (still in the 1st quarter).
