Not Good...

Lots of shoddy housing in this area. From bad construction and materials on high rises and apartments to adobe housing.


Update 00:49 UTC : WAPMERR, the theoretical damage engine has calculated that based on M6.9 and 16 km depth there will be 400 to 3500 fatalities and thousands of injured. Let’s hope that they are wrong !

Hope they're wrong...

This size EQ usually gets a lot more attention. 100's to 1,000's may be dead but more importantly, a few people in the US is taking front page...*sigh*

Peace

I find the timing of the quake and them taking the last suspect into custody to be more than a coincidence.

A few big ones have gone off in the last while...What the hell is the pattern? I'm guessing it's a weather system we just don't get yet. I hope the damage is minimal but that's completely out of my hands.

It is unfortunate that such an devastating earthquake has struck the same province which had last years May EQ of 7.4 which killed thousands of people in Lushan and Sichuan provinces...

This 6.6 has already claimed 78 lives and hundreds of people are injured. S&F to you OP.

Thoughts and prayers for all.

Next days to end of April (next 35 days) and days from 16 to 23 June, also we will have super full moon for this year on 23 June ..

I expect at sensitive area very strong EQ of M 8.0 + from 16 to 23 June, for next 35 days we have several very dangerous days so I will post danger for all 35 days and we probably will have very strong seizmic activity worldwide and probably EQ of M 7.5 + .. "




It's country's worst earthquake with most casualties in last three years ..
