Hi folks. This thread has been set up to accommodate conversations, info, ideas and observations of earthquakes worldwide, as well as those local to Australia. Thankyou Richard for offering a new place for myself, other old WZ'ers and all others to share our interest in this topic, and it's sometimes associated other events, such as volcanic activity and tsunamis. 3.28 million views on WZ/EQ's was/is a wonderful response to our natterings there. I am no scientist and just an amateur observer of quakes, their precursors, events and some of their consequences. So my input is in a conversational style and observations stem from general intuition and suspicions as to where quakes/tremors may occur. I always [noted on WZ] say that what I natter about is to be taken with a pinch of salt, as I may be wrong with my observations. But I am sure that we can learn much from each other and enjoy the sharing of thoughts, feelings, ideas and info on earth movements, daily and/or weekly. Thankyou for welcoming me and all the other WZ'ers to your wonderful community on ski with such kindness and warmth. It is hugely appreciated. Cheers, Duck.
