The closest large town to the epicenter is Markha (11,000 inhabitants). It is located at 862 km southwest of the epicenter. The earthquake was probably not felt there.
Based on theoretical models, 2.000 people will have felt a moderate shaking.

If you muffle an explosion which way is the force directed? The force that is exerted down into that plate must be transferred to the opposite side of the plate. Since we have been so much activity in the Solomon Islands a nuclear test force is going to cause movement of the plate. If you look at a map of all the eqs that have been taking place you can clearly see a line pattern of quakes. If you draw a line between the eqs you see see pattern. First event off the coast. 2nd event, inside coast. 3rd event, east side of sierras.
First event off the west coast followed by event either in Japan or vise-versa. Second event, New Madrid. Third event either East coast or British Isles.
The Edgar Cayce scenario is about to play out.edit on 14-2-2013 by prophetboy12 because: added some thoughtsedit on 14-2-2013 by prophetboy12 because: Add One last thing
The comets are final warnings and could be triggers.edit on 14-2-2013 by prophetboy12 because: (no reason given)

The only thing I can think of that COULD possibly happen (with the comet) may be the Ed Dames prediction whereas he says a satellite or rocket will fall from the sky. He said something about N. Korea? Maybe one of their satellites (do they have one lol). Anyway, maybe one of the satellites will get hit by the comet and bring in to the earth. The "seer" Phage says it won't happen though.
I do hope the New Madrid stays quiet as well as the West Coast. People here in TN keep saying they hear noises/hums, but I have yet to hear them myself.

Thanks for finding that and posting. To my very untrained eye, that does look like a quake.
When I was hunting for earthquake history for that region, I found journal entries about that area being the antipode location for Fiji. I'm sure the seismos are there to study how the earthquake waves travel through the earth.
I still haven't found much earthquake history for that area, just a lot of strife. So, that is why I was wondering about something man-made.
comet will make no difference to anything its only 15cm wide
An earthquake having a Richter scale of 7.3 hit Russia Thursday evening, Xinhua reported.
According to the China Earthquake Networks Centre, the temblor, which had a depth of 10 km, was recorded at 9.13 p.m. (Beijing Time), 300 km north of the village of Ust-Nera in Shakha region of Russia's Far East.
I wonder if it is some part of the comets tail...
