Yet another amazing slide show from You Tube.

Here is an incredibly moving silent record of what has happened...

I will leave you in peace to watch it.

Wow..some of those buildings took a real hit. Are there still tremors going on over there?

Yes indeed the tremors continue.

I read lst night that since the 'quake' on Monday there have been just over 800 tremors - 9 of which have been between 4.2 and 5.6, so it's not all over by any means I'm afraid...

Quick question - at what 'strength' on the richter scale can the earthquakes be felt by humans?

Robert I really don't know. I think much depends on the individual. We hear of so many people who 'sleep right through' an BIG tremor, whereas others will say 'Did you feel that?' and you didn't feel a thing.

I found this about the >Richter Scale< though and what it says really surprised me.... a force 6 on the scale is TEN times stronger than a force 5!!!!

I didn't know that.
