Anyone feel the quake 50 km NW of Dali ?
Shaxi is quite close to it..
I'm in Dali and the whole house moved!
Expect a BIG one to come this summer. One that's near Kunming.
Liumingke, are you a prophet? A fortune-teller? How do you know a big one is coming?
If I were a prophet, I wouldn't confirm it or deny it. :-). We all know how prophets get treated throughout history.
yeah but they're remembered long after every other mere mortal fades in the dust. think about it, liumingke. IMMORTALITY!! come on. give us a clue, man. does it have to do with the alignment of the stars?
I'll never tell! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa(laughing like a madman).
I also heard rumours that there would be a big quake in Kunming,,but unless someone shows some facts, its just another rumour going around.
It will happen about the same time as the big one in San Francisco. Also overdue.
Okay. I'll give you a little hint. It's gonna happen in the month of August toward the middle or end of the month.About a 7.5. It not going to happen in the North of Kunming but in the South.
How bad is it? Will the affected people be needing relief on the long term?
Don't worry. I was just kidding. Put your mind at ease.
Liumingke, it's really not cool to frighten the masses with doom and gloom predictions like that. Not cool. You had us running for the hills there.
I meant the Dali one.
:-). Seriously. If I had knowledge about something happening like this, I wouldn't post it on a forum. People would call me crazy and ignore me anyway. Maybe a handful would take me seriously and heed the warning.
Kunming is not in a particular dangerous situation anyway. The high number of small, barely detectable by humans, and small-to-medium sized quakes like the ones you'll feel in tall buildings and sometimes at ground level, keep the pressure from building up to massive quake dimensions. Sure, it could still happen but there shouldn't be anything suggesting imminent +7 risk. I read somewhere that the number of small to medium sized quakes in Yunnan amount to some 4000 a year. That's a good thing.
