7.0 27km E of Shwebo, Myanmar 2012-11-10 20:12:46 22.530°N 95.964°E 33.7

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Revised down:

6.6 56km NNE of Shwebo, Myanmar 2012-11-10 20:12:38 23.029°N 95.927°E 9.9

I really, really hope this isn't centered in any major population centers. I'm unaware if Myanmar has ever had any big quakes like this before


Edit: I'm trying to find news articles or tweets, something from over there to give this main post more substance. Just wanted the mods to know that.

Maybe Mother Earth is Mad,,, But I think she's Mad in that region of the World A-Lot!

Myanmar has had: 1 earthquake today 1 earthquake in the past 7 days 5 earthquakes in the past month 52 earthquakes in the past year

Hopefully no one was hurt, the Power of 6.6 has to be Devastating.

You're correct, it has been revised down to a 6.6 now

6.6 56km NNE of Shwebo, Myanmar 2012-11-10 20:12:38 23.029°N 95.927°E 9.9


I'm not finding much yet. Just retweets of the USGS info like I posted. I know Myanmar is very poor & the infrastructure isn't great. I hope this didn't cause much damage, i.e I hope it was merely remote.

Yes it was and yes it has.

Look at my post inn Quake Watch for details.

There are articles, but not much detail.

This one says there is no reported damage as of now:

88,000 people 12 miles from a 10km deep Mag 6.6 will probably mean casualties unfortunately. I don't think they are too earthquake proofed.

Thank you for the links, PuterMan. So they do see shaking on a strong level, it's not new to them. Judging from the population lists in the QW thread you posted, that would mean this struck in a pretty densely populated area, correct? Thank god they're more open to the rest of the world recently, they're probably going to need the international help

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in the area


RSOE has several icons in that region, so either there's been more than one major quake, or the computer is just registering the same one more than once.

I think the main problem area will be the first one on the list I posted in QW. Just because this is a PAGER yellow alert however does not mean that there WILL be casualties.

Keep your fingers crossed!

There has been a 5.1 aftershock and now a 5.0 aftershock as well. ROSE will be showing the initial output from the PTWC which was the Mag 7 which has been deleted as they usually are when the US network version is posted. They will also be showing the US network version I expect.

Unfortunately RSOE does not recognise this fact often. And contender for this is Global Incident Room who also fail to remove deleted quakes.

Yes it is but it is also an aftershock. There could be aftershocks for days or even weeks, and yes they are aftershocks not 'new' earthquakes. For it to be a new earthquake it would need to be outside the area of the earthquake in the area to which the stress is transferred.
