Day 67

http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/08/japan.quake/index.html?hpt=T2

Japan has another earthquake, 7.2 on the scale, but 8.8 miles below the Earth's surface.  No significant damage, but tsunami of 0.5 meters expected.  That's a tsunami??

So, is Wisconsin broke, or aren't they?  I guess that's the main detail going forward, and we may never truly know.  After all, stats can be twisted to say anything you like.

  2. 7.2 is pretty big, but I guess that far down in the Earth's surface it's not going to do much. A tsunami of .5 meters doesn't sound like much either. Seems Japan lucked out.

  4. Lucked out indeed. I was in L.A. back in the 80's and 90's during some earthquakes. They were no fun!
