Only a relative handful of photographs came from quake
region, which is unusual.
In magnitude terms, the upgrade placed the quake
equal fourth on a U.
Only three of the United States' post-1900 quakes
cost more than $1 billion when they happened.
At such high speeds, massive amounts of pressure build up, generating underground (seismic) waves that can cause more damage than the quake
By constantly monitoring these conditions, the scientists hope to spot patterns in the way the rocks behave before breaking apart in a quake
The waves can travel hundreds of miles before hitting the coast of Southern California, as was the case during Chile's 1960 earthquake and Anchorage's 1964 quake
It pushed an earlier quake
in El Salvador off the front pages and effectively out of the news.
In this sense, the story of how Kobe responded (and continues to respond) to the quake

We're pleased to be working with Nerve and Z-Axis to bring the highly-anticipated gameplay from Enemy Territory: QUAKE

A repeat of the 1906 quake
would be as devastating to the Bay Area as Hurricane Katrina was to New Orleans.
Kate Hutton, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said there was a one-in-20 chance that Tuesday's quake
was a foreshock to a larger quake
that could hit within five days.
0 on the Richter scale is 10 times stronger that a quake
