…party like it’s 2004

Yesterday tectonic history repeated itself. Well, not exactely, but the latest seaquake near Sumatra could have been like the one back in 2004. Just 500 kilometers to the East and Namazu’s strike would have had hit much harder. Why? Because the magnitude has different effects in different depths, the seaquake yesterday was rather deep. The shockwaves loose power on their way up to sea-level, just like a bullet fired in the water. And that epicenter was in the middle of the sea, the one in 2004 was between Simeulue and the west coast of Sumatra. There was a Ping-Pong effect which multiplied the force of the Tsunami. Imagine that you fire a gun out in the fields and in a small room, the echoes make the difference. So yesterday was a lucky day, a brief report here. EARTHQUAKE REPORT is an independent website which collects information from all over the world. No censorship for the sake of calm citizens, no panic mongering for clicks, just information, easy to read as possible. So don’t call it Namazuleaks, my blog is infotainment… subjective, emotive, leapfrogging. BTW, today is actually a tectonic anniversery, 2 years ago a quake disrupted Haiti. If you think that it did recover fast because there was not much to recover anyway, think again. Ca. 500.000 people still live in slums, even worse than the slums before. The good news: The international aid helped to fight the hunger at least.
