    Guess that was super moon shaker #1. The big Atlantic washtub must have got out of balance on the high tide.

    would supermoon have anything to do with this?

  3. Kajajuk says:

    That is a very large quake for a divergent margin!

  4. Mayans and Aztecs always named the Kings….Earth shaker or he of the giant mountain crumbling steps…
