The images of the collapsed school and the ensuing rescue attempts to find trapped children are devastating.

There was a 6.1 in New Zealand two days, so the "Ring of Fire" is not letting weather be the only destructive story this month.

The LA Times site reports it too, along with a 6.1 aftershock in Mexico and a 3.4 in North Korea near a nuclear facility.

There have been a few 4.0+ and more 3.0+ quakes up and down the CA state in the past couple weeks, in no particular pattern I can determine. IIRC, there was an on-shore 5.0 one a bit back, too.

I felt it during my fourth period class. The students, thankfully engaged in a debate on the viability of cryonics as a medical solution, did not. When they asked me what I thought about the subject, I had one word for them: carbonite. Then I pointed to a Han in carbonite figurine I have in class and many rolled their eyes in unison.

If they only knew the power of the force equation! I find their lack of faith disturbing. See ya around, kids. ;) :BrushOffTheDust:
