There was another great earthquake (8.7) just south of the one that produced the tsunami and killed all those unfortunate folks back in December... Hmmm, that earthquake hit the day after Christmas and now this one the day after Easter...

Surely it is a coincidence but dayummm...

nope this was a slip strike, horizontal motion, not vertical... still, they said it last for multiple minutes and hundreds if not thousands died when their houses fell on them.

This time, everyone who could, got up, dusted themselves off and then headed for high ground...

Thanks, Stripey!
