#461

A funny news article https://tw.appledaily.com/new/realtime/20180207/1293675

Japanese villagers?


#462

Only a day drinker would say they have not been day drinking.


#463

Hmm, you’ve got a point.


#464

I actually did feel that last one. My sticky ball aim was off on my last throw… .

And according to this. . http://www.cwb.gov.tw/V7e/earthquake/seismic.htm

We have had more quakes this week than in both September and October of 99’ combined. (111) If the information is actually accurate


#465

One thing I noticed. Most of the quakes in 1999 come on OR after the Jiji quake of 21 Sept. There were not many precursors to it.


#466

That looks safe.


#467

According to a German news article the latest death toll is 4. Injured 225. Missing 145.

I hope it will not get that bad:


#468

Latest numbers show 5 dead and only 82 missing. But injured keeps rising.

Edit.
Rescue efforts stopped due to heavy rain.

Good god - thanks for posting that about the 1951 East Rift Valley earthquakes. Er, maybe “thanks” isn’t quite the right term. I didn’t realize that sort of seismic activity happened.


#470

Cool. Now they can get back to business and charge extra for the special features.


#471

Quake count must be up into the 100s by now. Is there anyway to see a full list?

http://www.cwb.gov.tw/V7e/earthquake/ only shows the last 20, which is normally fine, but these are abnormal times…

@Nuit Full list in my post

Devided in blocks of 20 and magnitudes 5+ are bold.

Total in Hualien County for this month: 202


#474

thanks! wasn’t aware of the seismicity page.
that’s just a crazy list of tremors.


#475

If you were/are scheduled to fly to/from/through Taipei, like many of us for CNY, United Airlines just sent me an email that flights during this period can be rescheduled for free.


#476

So was that another one just now, or am I simply at the point where I’m imagining quakes?


#477

It sure felt like it!


#478

That’s where I am, if I’m swaying on my chair I think there’s an earthquake happening…


#479

I work in the 101 and a minute ago they announced there was an earthquake and they are inspecting the building. I did not feel a thing, but there is a huge damper in this building. Anyone feel anything?


#480

As posted, I can’t tell anymore but I thought there was one just now…
