    I'm sure the building codes to fortify structures isn't at the level of the US.

    I saw only one stronger than a major quake mentioned in the article.......but earthquake preparedness is always a good thing and tsunami prep is ongoing along the coast of the Pacific Northwest.

    I just hope some of the other countries along the ring of fire besides the US and Japan are working on it. At least the 2004 and 2011 tsunamis brought on awareness and those around the Pacific are much better prepared.

    I'm sure there is a reason for it but I lived in LA from 1980 to late last year and aside from a brief splurge after the Northridge quake ( It was close but it didn't quiet affect me, I was essentially living on a boat in San Pedro) never really concerned myself with a quake. Now aside from the homeless it's the main thing that I try to keep on top off from my abode in Northern New York.

    Good idea.......northeastern most NY is the "active" seismic zone in the state.

    .Huge 7.8 earthquake struck 123 km from Fiji. It happened at a depth of 378 miles (609km) underground. In the same article it also claims the depth was at 669 km.

    They downgraded it and it's another indication they're playing games with the numbers. This is an extremely deep quake at nearly 400 miles.

    Different groups will sometimes get different numbers.....it doesn't mean the numbers are being played with.

    A magnitude 8.1 quake doesn't need to be "covered up". The numbers are often changed from the original release after additional information comes in. Some earthquakes are even upgraded.
