7.0 6.8 earthquake in Burma

As of this morning, the 25th, the USGS shows four earthquakes, starting at “1 o’clock” on the map and going clockwise.

I ran out of the house. It shook pretty good for about 15 seconds. The USGS had it at 7.0. But refined its measurements. They usually go up… but this time went down : 6.8. It ‘got closer’ though… originally billed as 111km north it’s now billed as 89km north of Chiangrai. ~10km deep.

The junta is apparently stealing the aid from all-comers, preventing its dispersal to the local people in need.
