New Caledonia Quakes
New Caledonia's Loyalty Islands are being shaken terribly right now. 8 quakes in the last 4 hours.
4.9 all the way up to a 7.3. I've had this firefox earthquake plugin for about a month and this is the biggest single quake I've seen yet, as well as the most successive quakes in one place.

the plugin btw is called equake alert and is very cool. It shakes your screen everytime there is a quake
and reports the location, time, and magnitude.

the 7.3 from the usgs site

I hope the people of the Loyalty Islands are ok.

A quake that big can generate Tsunamis but a warning has not been issued as of this time. At least not
for Hawaii:

nor for the Western seaboard of the US

Nor indeed anywhere thank God.

More shaking could be imminent.

My screensaver shows the world and pinpoints different places on the map where there are earthquakes and the magnitude. Its also pretty neat.

How about a link :biggrin:
your just teasing if you tell us about neat things with no linky:grin:

Btw that plugin works great. I live in a earthquake prone area sort of, about 70 miles from where the coal mine collapsed in Utah.
