And the M6 aftershocks were nothing to sneeze at either.

I could never live along the Ring of Fire.

not only the magnitude is important... but the depth is as well. Any earthquake is bad, but those less than 15 miles deep can really f**k-up the surface.

the 8.1 was 11 miles deep, the 7.4 was 32 miles deep.

The Alaskan earthquake in 1964 was a 9.2 @ 15 miles depth.

That thing isn’t water proof. If someone flushed a toilet within 500 yards of it the humidity killed the engine.
