We got it here


That's the breaking News Thread




and here


That's the Quake Watch thread
(which I think is for tracking all earthquakes not just the big ones)

Since this appears to be a large event with very serious repercussions (there are some casualties already reported), I think we should have a forum thread just for the Peru Quake.
