No, was there one? Kindly post a website with a News link.
Don't know where they get 4.8 from
Yes, me too.
Beijing is too far away. It is warm and wet here again.
I miss Beijing, traveled there 20times in year 2010 and first half of 2011. :P
I may have felt nothing either if I was awake. lol
I surely did
must have been very deep underground.
On the richter scale this is a quake, but may have been felt like a tremor.
If the energy was centered at a shallow depth underground it would have caused a shitload of damage.
One of the most powerful Earthquakes they experienced back home in Christchurch was 5.8 as I remember, at a depth of only 5km underground, it did a shitload of damage, but with less casualties than the previous 7.8 we had.
The hand of god Earthquake is probably when you get something in the 7's, at a shallow depth, these ones, cause much death and carnage, fortunately no one has been hurt, nor is there any damage...or is there?
Hey one of the deadliest Earthquakes of the twentieth Century occurred here, 1976 I believe, it may have been a 7.8 or 8.2, in Tang Shan.
However, with the dense population and rudimentary buildings at the time, this must have exacerbated the death toll, an d certainly didn't help humanities cause.
Let's hope last nights Earthquake isn't a sign of things to come!
yes, I did. It was very strong.It woke me up. I thought it could happen in shenzhen. maybe the near is the last year for the earth!
