Lots of activity lately and this one was kind of shallow so there might be some significant damage.

I will update if they revise the readings.

Hopefully this wasn't a preshock and since this seems to be a fairly populated area I hope that everyone is alright.

With all the terrible engineered infastructure (i.e Dams, and Large structures of sort) that there have been reports on in China I cringe everytime I hear about large earthquakes there. Fingers crossed the damage is minimal.
