    There is no 13.78. If it was Bim would jot n be there. The one in Japan a few years ago was a 9 and Haiti was about a 7 or so. Look at the damage go figure

    Will the real seismologist ( or relevant authority) please stand up; open mouth; and share with us: are these “after-shocks”… or “before-shocks”?

    cherylann, 13.78 is not the measurement of the tremor it is the degrees in distance.
