  6. This must be in line with the strong earthquake that had hit Japan. Certain shakes have been happening, the planet is really old now.

  7. In all countries where earthquakes hits they should build their houses with the Japanese technology. Then only we can prevent death rate.

  8. Foong, one consolation is that Malaysia is not sitting atop a faultline though tsunamis may affect us.

    Bananaz, you think?

  9. Lina, the destruction they bring is worrisome.

    SK, if you look at a tectonic map of the world, Myanmar is sitting on top of a faultline. You are right. The initial reading was 7.0 but they revised it to 6.8.

  11. Prasad, that is true. However, it's the tsunami that has caused the havoc this time.
