      No thank you.....not again. Can't stop the quakes but can control how many stupids I employ in selecting a place to work.
      The highest I've been in is a 7.1, and it was scary. It was the Northridge quake in '93 (i think), and although we were 64 miles away, it did a lot of damage to powerlines, and shook water out of our spa.

      Then when I lived in Claremont, there was a 6.1 in Upland, but because we were so close to the epicenter, many brick chimneys were crumbled in that quake. I had some beautiful vases that my Grandparent's got in China, and were irreplacable. These jumped off the shelves, and smashed, along with the spice and cans in my cupboards.
      Believe me, now in EQ country, EVERYTHING is bolted or stuck down!

        I'm really surprised,Thankful,but surprised that their has not been one serious tsumani associated with these big earthquakes we've been having lately.Hope it continues.

          It looka like Vanatu isn't done shaking yet. It finished off the UTC day with a 5.0 that was later downgraded to a 4.9 and now there are two more aftershocks, a 5.1 followed by a 5.5. That makes a total of 7 in just slightly over 12 hours. I hope they are just the aftershocks we are used to seeing after a big quake and not leading up to another big one.

            It is now 3:30 PM (eastern) Saturday 5/29/2010 and it looks like Vanatu is not done shaking yet.

            There are still 4-1/2 hours to go in the UTC day and Vanatu has had 4 more moderate aftershocks. But what I found interesting was the progression from deeper to shallower with just a few exceptions. While the progression is not perfect there does seem to be a trend from more deep events to more shallow events.

            That makes me wonder if something is rising from the depths of the earth, like a magma plume, that could lead to another big volcanic eruption.
