To commemorate four years anniversary of the 3.11 Earthquake, decided to make a thread discuss about any general earthquake activities and current news.
If you had felt earthquake at least once, describe the biggest the magnitude/intensity, time occurrence, how people reacted.

Risk of 8.0 earthquake in California rises, USGS says - LA Times

Here is a news that the scientists modified the risk of mega-earthquake in California has been recently increased.

Quote:
Scientists said the reason for the increased estimate was because of the growing understanding that earthquakes aren’t limited to separate faults, but can start on one fault and jump to others. The result could be multiple faults rupturing in a simultaneous mega-quake.

I felt the table move in the restaurant (Pekanbaru) in Padang Earthquake 30.9.09 7.9 RS

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009...ra_earthquakes

2004 Indian Ocean was higher (9.1 RS) but I was 7, it was 7:58am here in Pekanbaru so it was very vivid (maybe i was still sleeping)

In Vancouver earthquake news, seismic upgrades to a number of at-risk schools in the city have been delayed by 10 years. The funding and willpower is there, but there are some disagreements between the provincial government and the local school board on how to go about doing with minimal disruption to the students. So the completion of the upgrades has been delayed from its original 2020 deadline (set in 2005 when the program was first introduced) to 2030.

Now, the chances of a major quake happening before then are relatively low, but nevertheless it seems a bit careless to me to prolong the risk to so many students and teachers when we have the ability to get it done earlier than that.

Should have posted it the other day... I think there will be a 6+ in the US west coast region fairly soon, a the last little while it turns out there were two in the 4.5 range. But I'm thinking there has to be something much bigger soon.
