    A couple of earthquakes in Burma - over 7 on the scale, and less than 10 k deep.

    No tsunami expected as they were far from the coast, near the border with Thailand.

    We are very lucky. I remember the one in the Irish sea in the 80s, I was in bed in the morning and the house started shaking, I thought it was a truck or plane passing.
    I'm lol at this as well, because I was in bed too and felt my bed move and thought it was my younger brother acting the b******s underneath it and remember shouting that if he didn't get out of my room now, I would smash all his stupid steely dan records to pieces, I was amazed not to hear a reply even if was just bit*h.

    A strong earthquake has struck the Greek island of Crete.

    Local police said they had no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

    The German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, Germany, says today’s quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.2 and struck at 4:29 pm local time.

    The US Geological Survey gave the preliminary magnitude as 5.9.

    Well, Santorini, a neighbouring island, "is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history," which is generally credited with wiping out the Minoan civilization.

    There was a very interesting documentary on just now about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
    Apparently, there was an enormous cover up by city officials regarding the rebuilding of the city.

    They doctored information, including photos and within hours it was being called the "San Francisco Fire".

    Apparently, there's an alert over Taal volcano in the Philippines; close enough to Manila

    I'm going to edit the thread title, as it's become our general earthquake thread.

    Probably a load of twaddle ... but then ya never know
