They also say earthquake killed hundreds. RIP
this is a big one. I know what a 6.7 looks like. pfuff !
RIP
do not forget that the Richter_magnitude_scale is not linear !


I experienced a 4 something earthquake when I was in Arequipa. I was then traveling as a backpacker and on a shoestring. I was staying in a dormitorio (collective room, in English?) with 6 beds. There was only that local girl and myself in the room that night. The walls started to shake and there were cracking sounds. We didn't leave the room.

4 is nothing, excuseme NOTHING, you have no experience in real earthquake. it only counts when it is >6.23323783 and < 9 ( >= 9 you are not there any longer to let the others know)
