So WTF is happening?? The opening chapter for 2012?
"The length of the day should have gotten shorter by 1.26 microseconds [millionths of a second]," Richard Gross, a geophysicist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told Bloomberg. "The axis about which the Earth's mass is balanced should have moved by 2.7 milliarcseconds [about 8 centimeters or 3 inches]."
According to Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan on March 11 has also shifted the position of the Earth's figure axis, and moved the whole planet by 25cm. Research scientist Richard Gross of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said Japan's quake should have shifted the position of the Earth's figure axis (the axis about which its mass is balanced) by about 16cm (6.5 inches), towards 133 degrees east longitude. According to NASA, the tremor also shortened the length of a day caused by the earthquake's redistribution of Earth's mass by 1.8 microseconds.

I am from Myanmar , I am old ATS Luker.
I woke up late i didn't manage to report this early. The earthquake was hit near Northern state (Near Golden Triangle area). I live at Southern part of Myanmar , the earthquake didn't reach here tho. But My Mother in Law is a Teacher living at one of the earthquake major hit Province , "Kyaine Tone" , and i will report what heard from there.
Here are some interesting thing that happened before earthquake:
- Since before Japan Earthquake , at around 6-7th March , in the "Nong Tone" Lake from Kyaine Tone , one of the most famous lake of Myanmar after "Inn Layy" , all died up . All fishes in that Lake.
- Also there are reports of smell of sulfur seeping from around the area of the lake. Kyaine Tone is believed to be on top of Dead Volcano , which is never active, but it have natural warm jacuzzi lakes around the place.
- Before 6 hr of first earthquake Around the ground of that Area become suddenly hot.
Death toll is over 80 now , more to be expected , and people are worrying this is just a Fore Shock (like 7.2 in japan) , Large one is just waiting. Mother in law's Student Family died in earthquake , when the building collapse. Most buildings there are already old and not well made.
She now coming to Yangon , Capital city just this morning.
