Personally, i don't get why all these minor quakes are posted on here, most are pretty minor and have no adverse affect on humanity as we know it. We all know where to check to see the latest quakes from USGS etc, so unless its caused a major incident where's the point in telling everyone as anyone who cares already probably knows?

Some do, some don't. Some will, Some won't.

6.2 is hardly minor in an area with a recent devastating tsunami.

Are you saying that an EQ of that size in the US wouldn't be newsworthy?

My guess is that a 6.2 in LA would light up the boards.

That's because a 6.2 in LA would be unusual - whereas a 6+ in Indonesia isn't.
