Next earthquakes, this time in Indonesia and Trinidad and Tobago :( Hopefully @Griff88 is safe :fingers:

I'm fine guys :)

It was at the different island, which was affected by massive tsunami in 2004. The authorities are working to evacuate those who are still trapped in collapsed buildings. Hope everything will be alright

No tsunami expected, they're lucky there. It's fairly rare to see an earthquake like that in or near California.

@heywoodu are you a seismologist by trade? :p Although, asking that, I don't believe earthquakes are an everyday occurance in the Lowlands. :d

No, I'm just interested in them especially since it's so easy to keep track of them with websites like the EMSC :p 

 

I mean, on websites like that you see literally within 10-15 minutes that something big happened, I find that interesting :d 

 

We actually have some earthquakes here, but they are mostly due to the search for natural gas in the north and they cause a lot of discussion :p

Not really. It's been pretty average (knock on wood). We're yet to see an earthquake at 8.0 or above (the one mentioned by @heywoodu was "only" 7.8). Last time we've been without an earthquake at 8.0 or above was 2008. I believe the number of 7.0-7.9 has been pretty average (perhaps a bit above).

I used to think that things were getting worse and worse when it came to earthquakes, but looking at the statistics, it doesn't seem like it's that much (except that we're now slightly more used to the ones at 8.0 or above).

When it comes to casualties, it's not so terrible either, though of course every one of the 1327 (according to Wikipedia) deaths were sad.

 

I don't mean to make the major earthquakes less scary or the deaths less sad, but we've seen much worse.

But of course the year isn't done yet, and you never know when they happen!

the earthquake is not bad like you think also the volcano , storm , tsunami ...etc  it's very important for the echosystem , the planet searches always the equilibrium

of course  the human plays the bad role
