That area has been ripping them lately. I think I have been pinged a half dozen times in the past week with 6.0 plus quakes from there.

Start the countdown until the “Global Warming” is integrated into the story, as the blame for any event is used (Katrina, Sandy, etc.)

Probably caused by fracking.

6.4 was an after shock. 8.0 was primary.

It’s not global warming nor fracking, it’s Bush’s fault!

3 foot tsunami at the small island nearest the epicenter.

That’s a lot worse than it sounds, but probably suggests there MAY not be much of a long-range tsunami threat.
