Quotes

"The focus was very deep and the quakes are centred close to the Tongan trench" Mr Finau said
...“It wasn't some crazy over-the-top thing today,” he said. "If people around here decided, 'Hey, we don't want this,' they could sit down there for a few days and shut it down. To me, that's what's interesting. Is that going to happen? I don't know.”"
...(Author Ray Bradbury once saw these mummies and came away shocked: "The experience so wounded and terrified me, I could hardly wait to flee Mexico." ) We went to Teotihuacán to see the pre-Columbian pyramids, and I was told that the people who built them worshiped the sun and moon
He also warned that the quakes could recur as they were part of the operation of the Muong La-Bac Yen fault segment. "But it is impossible to forecast the magnitude of the earthquakes as they depend on the operation of the fault segment with each time period" he added
