    At least 18 people dead and 500 injured as rescuers try to free 30 more trapped under toppled buildings following 6.8-magnitude earthquake in Turkey

    The earthquake struck Friday at 1755 GMT, 8.55pm local time, near the town of Sivrice in eastern Elazig province, the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency said. Defense Minister Hulusi Akar told reporters that there were no reports of any casualties in Sivrice but said the quake may have caused casualties in rural areas outside the town.

    it woke me up.
    I live very close to the geographical center of california
    others felt it in sacramento.

    what gets me about it is that it had no tiny quakes that show stress on the fault before it happened.
    anyone here know what weapons tests look like on the quake maps ?
    this was 5 miles down, seems to deep for a test, but it was pretty close to area 51 and S4

    The experts say conditions are just right for development this hurricane season. We could have a record number of named storms. There has been a lot of Saharan dust coming from North Africa that has been inhibiting development but that will not last much longer.

    I say bring it all on! We're already totally screwed this year. Why not throw in a few storms and quakes? :eek:

    I know right, totally screwed, yet this itch I cannot scratch is hinting at more to come, like its hardly over yet, like this year of 2020 hasn't finished taking us through its tree house of horrors, it's going to get worse before it gets better...
