Are you Japanese tenkier?

There's been about a dozen tremors off Puerto Rico's north coast the last 7 days. There's usually about 3-4 dozen tremors a month around Puerto Rico. Unfortunately we are near one of the most seismically active fault lines in the world. But I think because we have so many so frequently, it relieves the pressure on the fault, not causing it to rupture so violently like in Chile, Japan, and Alaska.

The last earthquake I felt was the 2011 Virginia earthquake. Before that was a 5.0 earthquake in Puerto Rico in 2010

I would add some information on this, but there is already a good thread about it on the Europe forum ( Earthquake in Italy. At least 24 dead )

It is a real disaster and a tragedy, in an area that already had too many episodes of this kind

7.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of New Zealand + a tsunami threat, pretty scary.

Edit: Looks like the tsunami has started, hope it isn't too bad.

Just for comparison's sake.. the earthquake that caused the 2004 tsunami was a magnitude 9.1-9.2.
