    Yeah, for every full point on the scale, the magnitude doubles, doesn't it? True, the 9 really left them vulnerable to lower sized quakes but before the 9, they could've handled and were prepared for an 8.

    Despite the coverage largely leaving the media, the nuclear reactors still pose problems and threats to the environment, and most acutely to the surrounding areas.

    It depends on the epicenter of the earthquake. The Kobe earthquake in Japan on January 17, 1995, was measured at 6.8. Approximately 6,000 people lost their lives and the cost was about $100,000,000.

    The coastal fishing towns are the ones that round up the sacred dolphins and slaughter them, including main culture that still slaughter whales in the name of research, plus totally decimating the bluefin tuna with the net scoop technique. GAI'S VENGENCE. were all a slaughtering species but the time is at hand for a major change. Shes raped and tired beyond any sympathy.
