    According to the AP Wire Service out of Asia this quake was measured at 7.1 USGS has it at 6.8 and other reporting sites list it at 6.6 so it depends on what site you are monitoring. I will only say it was not unexpected. Biologically it was right on ….L earaches… can also include stomach pains, this is China, Pakistan, Afghanistan and India, including the Nicobar and Andaman Islands. Based on my past experience the largest aftershock for this quake should be by midnight Wednesday night plus 12 hours … if this was a main-shock, if not, then the main shock or largest A/S can hit the first 12-24 hours.. this timeline has been accurate 94% of the time..
