Hi westcoast. Very sorry about that. I must have been getting it together while you were pushing the button!

I did not see anything when I did a search. I will leave it to the mods if they wish to close my thread. No problem with that.

Maybe one day you will but you know we can thank our lucky stars that this was not of Fukushima and the No 4 cooling pool. If you want a bad start yo your day read about the potential end of the world.

That may seem off topic, but this one is another stress relief that hopefully mitigates problems elsewhere.

We ere all commenting on Quake Watch as to how eerily quiet it has been. This needs further investigation.

Another poster on Quakewatch quite often pondered if there could be any antipodal influence with quakes, so, with this in mind and given the size of this Banda Aceh one , here's a link to its Antipodal (?) partner

Just putting it out there - just in case...
