Check this out, it's from my E-Mail regarding the New Zealand Earthquake:

Earlier news might have been this Japan Earthquake, although at this point I do not recognize any of the "Nearby Places". . . nor any of the names of towns in the felt report that follows! Seems like the big deal was that it struck right in the middle of a heavily populated region there if you notice the populations are given in the Nearby Places list there:

5.0 - 15km NW of Uto, Japan
2016-08-31 21:33

Nearby Places:
Shimabara, Japan 15.4 km (9.6 mi) East of Population: 38,113
Uto, Japan 15.7 km (9.8 mi) NW Population: 39,234
Kumamoto, Japan 15.8 km (9.8 mi) WSW Population: 680,423
Tamana, Japan 17.1 km (10.6 mi) SSW Population: 45,661

Looks like all the shaking in New Zealand took place about 7 hours and 32 minutes after the exact moment of the New Moon early Thursday.

Thank-You For Reading and have a Great Labor Day Weekend, Everybody!!! And of course there's all those big windstorms and I'm sorry for all the folks who might have hoped for a better holiday weekend, too! There's also going to be some shaking due to all that WIND!!! And all the landfalls including Hurricane Hermine landfalling at Florida on my TV right this moment as I'm publishing this Edition of my EQ Blog!!! EQ Guy
