7.1 - is this finally the one degree lower we've been waiting for or a different location ?
Aftershock forces plane to turn back A strong aftershock has stopped a plane carrying officials and supplies from landing in a disaster struck area of the Solomon Islands. ONE News Pacific Correspondent Barbara Dreaver was on the plane heading for Lata, which bore much of the brunt of a 8.0 magnitude quake. Dreaver told ONE News the plane, carrying the Solomons Prime Minister and members of his Cabinet as well as aid officials, was about to land when they were told a massive earthquake had damaged the runway................
"Some of those islands wouldn't be a metre out of the sea and a wave of even 0. 9 of a metre would have a significant impact," said Red Cross Disaster Manager Tim McInerny. "People have nowhere to go, they will have to climb coconut trees to try and get away."
"Many people have no clothes at all, everything was washed away."

Anyone know what is the opposite word/s for Elapsed Time for the Foreshocks?
I don't think there is an antonym for elapsed, at least not that I can think of.
Interesting question. I don't know of one off the top of my head . . .
unelapsed time? LOL.
potential elapsed time?
Pending elapsed time?
