As of 1 January, 2005, there were about 84 aftershocks with magnitudes ranging from 5.0 to 7.0 in the region of Northern Sumatra and the Nicobar and Andaman Islands. Twenty six (26) of these - including the largest- occurred on 26 December 2004, the same day as the main earthquake. Since 1 January 2005, many more aftershocks have occurred. The aftershocks are expected to continue for several weeks and months. Some of the major aftershocks have occurred in the vicinity of the epicenter of a past earthquake which had occurred on 26 June 1941 and some in the area near the Nicobar Islands where the 1881 earthquake had occurred.
The distribution of afteshocls suggests that the earthquake resulted by the sudden slip of these two plates and that there was a slip as well as an upward thrust of the Burma plate along this boundary.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active for the next three days (11-13 March) with a slight chance for minor to major storm conditions, particularly at high latitudes. Effects from the 07 March CME will slowly subside during day one (11 March), but the arrival of a coronal hole high speed stream is expected to become geoeffective late on day two (12 March) through day three (13 March).
There have been more than 500 aftershocks from Sunday's 7.2 Mexicali earthquake, and experts said residents in the region can expect many more.

Is the news media in Japan censored in any way?
They have had a Huge earthquake, over 100 big quakes since, a tsunami, Fires, an avalanche, radiation leaks, cities of over 70,000 total washed away and on and on..
Yet the death toll is so low ( I can understand this, as still in the early stages)
yet reports of injuries being treated are just over 1000 (according to Japan news)
Do you think they are downplaying the news coming out of the country?
Has anyone seen a injured person on any of the news feeds? (I remember in other countries pics of dead bodies floating by, injured people etc..)
I ask this in regards to the power plant...do you think they will tell the truth as how bad it is?
