it's over.
Things is a startin' to get mighty biblical.

me a hole somewhere.

Holy shit, that's a big one! damned.gif

I'm just reading a 5 meter wave just hit Aceh which was pretty much destroyed in the last tsunami. No casualties reported so far as people actually ran for the hills. :whew:

Wow that's a big one. Funny just yesterday I a saw an old co-worker who was in Aceh when the tsunami hit in '04. It changed him, he got religion did some fundraising and went back to help them build houses, he's a carpenter.

Hope nothing like that happens again sad2.gif

I hope so too sad2.gif From what I read it was a horizontal move of the crust and didn't displace a lot of water as opposed to 2004.

So far the damage has been minor. The ring of fire sure has been active lately.

Wednesday's quake was followed by a magnitude-8.2 aftershock. Both were strike-slip quakes.

"A week ago, we wouldn't have thought we could have a strike-slip earthquake of this size. This is very, very large," said Kevin Furlong, a professor of geosciences at Penn State University.

So large, in fact, that the main shock went into the history books. Record-keeping by the USGS National Earthquake Information Center ranks Wednesday's shaker as the 11th largest since 1900. It's probably the largest strike-slip event though there's debate about whether a similar-sized Tibet quake in 1950 was the same kind.

A preliminary analysis indicates one side of the fault lurched 70 feet past the other — a major reason for the quake's size. By contrast, during the 1906 magnitude-7.8 San Francisco earthquake along the San Andreas — perhaps the best known strike-slip event — the ground shifted 15 feet.
