You are fast! Did you ignore the earthquake and stay behind your computer to type this message ;-)

Yes always on the computer. LOL.

My real message is that small quakes happen 3 or 4 times a year and visitors to Bali should not panic when they happen.

Sorry I misread Rarefossils Post and thought the reference was to the one during last night 46 minutes after midnight.

Of course Rarefossil was referring to is the second one detailed above.

It occurred at 17:09:31. Location 8.907S 115.153E. At a depth of 73 km and at a distance of 28 km (18 miles) SSW (198 degrees) of Denpasar.

I felt it too over in Tanjung Benoa...

I had to laugh at the Japanese tourists who were running around screaming and then would not take their eyes off the ocean with fear of a tsunami...

It's funny because anyone who has been to Bali before, or even many other Asian destinations knows mini quakes happen on a regular basis, and they are exactly that, mini...
