Are any of our fellow quilters from Alaska? If so, is everyone OK. Just read
they had the strongest earthquake recorded in American History. They say it
was a 7.9

Luckily it was in a very remote area - only one injury known.  Had to shut
down the pipeline though.  Does it seem to anyone else that there has been a
very unusually high number of earthquakes in the last week?  One at Mt. Etna
(which is also erupting), the one near Naples (2 actually) that killed the
entire first grade class, one in Pakistan, one in Indonesia and one in North
Dakota other than the Alaska quake.  All of those except the Italian quakes
in the last 2 days or so.

Howdy!
  Saturday CNN reported an earthquake:
7.5 quake hits unpopulated area of Indonesia; 40 injured

40 what?   If the place in unpopulated....

Ragmop/Sandy--California quakes were good enough for me ;-D

If the area is unpopulated then it stands to reason that the number 40 was
what was injured.
Diana, in WI where we dont get earthquakes, just tornados and blizzards.

Where in ND was the quake?  Are you sure it was ND?  That is supposedly the
only state to never have one.

Guess they were just passing thru from one populated place to
another. ;)

Not sure yet, I have a friend there, so I'm looking it up.
Here's a website on the various ones that have been in ND.

Looked it up - the 64 quake was bigger and in a populated area.  This one
was 7.2, and -

<Quote>
In 1964, the "Good Friday" earthquake left 131 people dead in Alaska.
Current measurements put that quake's magnitude at 9.2.

From Foxnews website story on the quake.

The Brits have been having quakes too...  although they were a little
feeble!

Earthquakes tend to happen in cycles, especially on the "Ring Of Fire."  All
around the Pacific Basin, from Alaska down to Baja California, and on around to
Japan, down to the Philippine Islands and Australia.

However, the city that has the most earthquakes in a year was featured in a
Sony commercial I believe - Ridgecrest, California...in the middle of the
Mojave Desert.  Three fault lines meet there - including the famous San Andreas
- where, only in California, is a tourist attraction!  

Some of the earthquakes were due to underground bomb testing in Nevada <G>.

I grew up in Ridgecrest.

HMM - the report I read yesterday used the abbreviation ND but today in an
article specifically about the rash of earthquakes I find -

<Quote>
Nebraska, 4.3, Sunday shortly before the Alaska quake, about 30 miles west
of O'Neill. Minor damage. Also felt in parts of South Dakota and Iowa.<END>

Don't remember whether the original I read was on Fox or CNN or BBC and they
change the miserable things with each update  - sorry.

You know I grew up mostly in New England where we've always said exactly the
same thing.  Then about 15 years or so ago I was in the powder room reaching
for the TP when I noticed the silk blouse I had drying on a hanger from the
towel bar swaying frantically.  Earthquake up in Quebec.  Lately - as in the
last couple of years - we've had several small ones.
