BBC. No more info than that at the moment.
7.2 is pretty big though eh?
Uh yeah, that's a big effing earthquake. I bet they are terrified, the last time this happened it was an absolute nightmare.
I bet they are.
Wiki says that the 2004 one was ~9.1-9.3 though. Hopefully this time round won't be as bad.
I just felt the tremors over where I am at, in Singapore, about a couple of hours ago. The building shook noticeably and we were wondering if we should evacuate.
I really need to be in an earthquake one day.
Tsunami warning was cancelled. Ring of fire earthquakes can be some big shakers. They just had an 8.4 last Sept.
I've been through some smaller ones and unless your outside I think they are really creepy.
I'm still waiting for a landslide off the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands to happen. Will be sometime before that happens thankfully.
You know, I'd rather NOT have that happen.
At least, not a slide off the west side.
I hope you are kidding because there is nothing fun about them. Nor would I consider the decent sized one I went through a worthwhile experience. What I could not believe was that the training they do in elementary school worked for me many years later.
Got woken up by the quake at 4:00AM and went straight to a doorway and waited it out.
4am? you must be from southern cali then (I was in the northridge quake too) but it was too friggin violent for me to walk with any stability so I fell over trying to get away from the falling glass. it just plain sucked.
Meh, only people who have never been terrified by experiencing a big earthquake will say "oh cool, I want to feel one" because it really sucks when it actually happens.
coincidentally England just had a 5.3 which is big for this region. (but I didn't feel it)
