    It seems there were two (or maybe three) within a few seconds of one another. The first was 5.8 km deep, and shortly after there was another, 33 km deep. There may have been a third at 15 km. See http://quakes.globalincidentmap.com.

    Another one a few minutes ago - were getting a Breaking News Tsunami warning here for Auckland, North Cape and Wellington plus several Pacific islands incl Vanuatu, Fiji and Norfolk Island. Solomons have apparently been damaged and got a 1 metre wave.

    3 villages wiped out in lata i had been trying to put my energy into that place for awhile when i noticed an increasing amount of activity in the one point..

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-02-0...-quake/4504170


    EDIT:

    I agree ghosty.. I did not like the fact they did it but since they have done it there no going back now so i decided to use it in my post to show how the ground shakes.. The earth is full of radiation beneath the surface.. both natural and manmade by the name of war and science..

    North korea is about to do the same thing, but not for testing magnitude..

    http://rt.com/news/test-nuclear-north-korea-546/

    It has already alarmed the world with its imminent rocket launch. But now it also appears that North Korea is on the verge of executing another underground nuclear test.

    South Korean news agency Yonhap has reported leaked information from an anonymous domestic security source that claims the test will occur at the same site in Kilju, next to the Chinese border, as two previous detonations in 2006 and 2009.

    When records show a difference within seconds for an earthquake and with different depths of occurrence, usually the following is the most probable cause:

    Quote Posted by Amzer Zo (here)
    [...]
    Another thing that accounts for the difference of time within seconds is the time it takes for the propagation of the rip along the fault plane which, usually, also gives a difference in depth (vertical component) -- and/or location (horizontal component) -- of occurrence from the beginning end of the rip to its ending point.
