If I had strong anti China sentiments, I'd say something about that. Luckily I only have strong anti Chinese government feelings, so I hope there aren't too many people affected. Though sadly for more than 2 million people, that isn't the case:

Just to put up some revised numbers on the big one...

Magnitude 7.8 EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA
May 12, 2008 at 06:28:00 UTC
Location 31.119°N, 103.258°E
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)


**Insert the one in apex's post above, here**

Magnitude 5.4 EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA

Location 31.278°N, 103.799°E
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)


I'm unclear about the time descrepency there with apex's post... scratch that... seems it is just a different one... so these next two makes currently 5 in total, basically in the same spot, in this run of fairly large quakes.

Magnitude 5.2 EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA
May 12, 2008 at 08:10:59 UTC
Location 31.225°N, 103.574°E

If I'm not mistaken, this is at least a 7th 'aftershock' since the original, in about a 6 hour time span, right on top of itself, all 4.9 or greater...

Magnitude 4.9 EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA
Monday, May 12, 2008 at 12:15:41 UTC
Location 31.898°N, 104.623°E
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)



Now heading back toward our side of the globe...

Magnitude 3.3 ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA
May 12, 2008 at 12:21:36 UTC
Location 51.636°N, 176.639°W
Depth 38.3 km (23.8 miles)


Magnitude 2.7 FOX ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, ALASKA
May 12, 2008 at 12:28:24 UTC
Location 54.001°N, 165.918°W
Depth 26.9 km (16.7 miles)


Magnitude 5.1 KODIAK ISLAND REGION, ALASKA
May 12, 2008 at 12:50:35 UTC
Location 56.523°N, 153.108°W
Depth 33 km (20.5 miles)


Also to interject, isn't there a post somewhere recently noting a web-bot prediction... something about not knowing the aftershocks from the original... something to that effect... I'll link if I locate.

Highly Speculative Web-Bot Run: The Chilean Volcano, The USA Earthquakes and The Bush Wedding

In addition, the [flooding] aspect/attribute set applies to the [earthquake] in that it appears as a [flood of earthquakes] rather than merely a single event. The data suggests so many [tremors] that it will be [academic] as to which to pick for the [earthquake] and which to pick as [aftershocks].


So that 'account' is a bit more harsh than what we are currently finding out, but this is simply terrible, none the less... certainly my good thoughts are out to all these people. (So, the rest of you better watch out... only bad ones left now
)

Is this the big one we have been waiting for? or is this just the start of what our worst fears have been suggesting? What kinda of impact will this have on the rest of the fault lines, is this going to be a series of chain reaction?

I tend to lean towards the fact that "everything" is related somehow, and I think north america's big one is one its way.....

The death toll is rising rapidly as the hours go by. CNN is now reporting over 7,600 dead.

I'm sure this will continue to climb as rescue workers move into the hardest hit areas.:shk:


State-run news agency Xinhua said the official toll had risen to 7,651 in Sichuan Province.

Authorities had earlier said they believed about 10,000 people were injured in Beichuan County in the northeastern part of the province.

The Sichuan provincial disaster relief headquarters said 80 percent of the buildings collapsed in the Beichuan Qiang Autonomous County after the 7.8-magnitude quake, Xinhua reported.

Several hundred students are also feared to be buried in collapsed school buildings, the agency said.

The quake was "felt in most parts of China," Xinhua reported, with the confirmed casualties in the provinces and municipality of Sichuan, Gansu, Chongqing and Yunnan.

Up to 14 Aftershocks i count, being 4.9 or bigger. There aftershocks are pretty bad themselves, shaking the foundation of already unstable structures

Location 51.437°N, 179.449°E

Another 4.9 on the hot spot... and I'd think you can put that at 19 aftershocks (total, that is... well... also at 4.9, for all 19) on the list earthquake.usgs.gov... because you can probably include the location listed as "SICHUAN-GANSU BORDER REGION, CHINA" -- true?

Xinhua is now reporting 7,651 confirmed deaths, but rescue workers haven't been able to reach the hardest hit area.


Major earthquake in southwest China's Sichuan Province has killed 7,651 people by 10 p.m. Monday in Sichuan alone, said the ad hoc headquarters for disaster relief headed by Premier Wen Jiabao in Sichuan.

The casualty calculation is still going on, the headquarters said.

By press time, disaster relief teams are obstructed in the city of Dujiangyan, less than 100 kilometers away from Wenchuan, as the only roads linking Wenchuan, the epicenter, and provincial capital Chengdu were damaged during the earthquake, according to Li Qianghua, director with the China Earthquake Networks Center.

I checked on the weather prediction for the region and it doesn't look too bad for exposed people.


www.wunderground.com...

If they can get some shelter during the night for warmth and the rain holds off, it will go a long way to help them concentrate on finding survivors instead of just surviving.

I'm sure the Chinese government will do everything they possibly can to help these people when you consider the scrutiny they're under right now. They'll want to show the world that they are going to extraordinary measures to rescue every person they can.
This political and public spotlight on China can only help in the rescue effort and the resources the government and military will throw at this disaster.


The official news agency of China is here:
It's the English version.

I'll also urge everyone to contact their local Red Cross and throw a couple bucks into the Disaster Relief Fund. With all they're dealing with right now I'm sure they would appreciate anything you can give them.

Not stopped, very small tremors continue daily. There was a 2.3 a couple hours ago.

Yeah, what else can we do?? LOL , anyways, the web sites are getting slower on the response time lately... 2-5 weeks ago, they were updating within 5 minutes of the quakes, even the .5's, but in the last week, it can take hours to get any update.... the quakes are slowing, but not stopping, and now, JUST like before the 3.8, the swarm slows down, media forgets about them, and then .......
So I guess we will have to wait to see what is in store next, but neither I nor a few other locals here think this is over...Still increased static electrcity, etc... my gut is still in "ready-go-" disaster mode, even though I have actually had a few nights of decent sleep for once.....

Bingo, Watch this crazy very fast blast that shot out of the sun. What the heck was that? I have never seen a flare like that. Right before the Sumatra quake and tsunami we had a massive solar flare. It was an X class flare back then but this looks wild.

5 of 9 more on the hot spot @ 5.1+... sends that running count to 24 now @ 4.9+, if my count is correct.

Plus the 5.0 in nearby Taiwan Region
