Earthquakes

Have had people contacting and asking about the recent earthquake that made it to the news. Not to play things down but we get a lot of earthquakes. Not all do huge damage but, after our “disaster” in 2007 we’re a bit gun-shy when it comes to shake-shakes. The Solomon Star link here will give you latest news per it all. But thus far reports give us some damage on Rendova. No deaths but lots of frightened folk.

I have been passed this web address…  

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php

check it out. Some great info. Check the function out that shows you the map of where the quake occurred. As I type this the house is shaking. Nothing drastic but enough to disorient the inner ear.

I offer some picts of Gizo after the 2007 damage…

Remember that most of the people in these picts had lost family members in the disaster.

It is understandable how frightened people are when the ground trembles.
