Sorry, first one I saw on the news as being a major looking one, so didn't really bother looking at any other sources. So yeah, not the first one, thanks for correcting me.

I think u misunderstood me, i was just stating that there have been a lot of big earthquakes lately and this should be alarming people....this sort of stuff doesn't happen often

5 earthquakes with greater than 7.0 magnitude in two weeks should concern people.
