The reason the 6.3 was FAR more destructive is that the epicenter was only 3.2 miles in depth. The 7.3 in Sept was FAR deeper in the earth, and the
earth's ground absorbs a lot of the energy before the S/P waves reach the surface.
Come on.... Now I DO agree, the USGS has removed quakes off lists, but this could be for many reasons.. Incorrect data, or a diabolical long-term plan
to make you post more.
