My daughter & wife were just there weeks ago on a mission trip. Praying for the friends they made & the mission house.
They did go from squares to circles...
Check out the activity before this quake struck on the Glamis webicorder....?
That’s too close to Charlotte, the Bank of America Stadium may have suffered structural damage, guess Obama better cancel his speech there.

I’ve been there. San Jose is an inland valley city and surrounded by volcanically-active mountains. The coastal plan on the Pacific side is especially exposed to a tsunami threat - it’s quite flat for a fair distance away from the coast. Met a lot of good people there - hope they are okay.
He already did.
Where in HI is this sucker headed for?
Felt it here in Nicaragua...lasted a long time...scary.
Indeed. They may have to move obama’s speech to a circus tent.
Beautiful country along the coastline there. You’re correct...I’d hate to see it damaged.
