Not as big as some others, but it seems that our Earth is racking up her yearly quota for earthquake's over 6 magnitude pretty quick this year......It just rubs me the wrong way. Feels like this year is going to be worse than anything we've seen in a while.

Just happened 20 something minutes ago I think it said, so hopefully we won't start getting reports flooding in of hundreds of people dead.

Yeah, they've been coming so regularly lately that I signed up for the USGS notification service on their website. If I remember correctly, this was a deep one at around 66km. The deep ones (generally over 50km deep) are found only in deep subduction zone areas at the edges of plates.

edit to correct depth to 66km
