Earthquake in Kyrgyzstan

There is finally more information coming about Tuesday's earthquake in Kyrgyzstan. And I'm glad it still appears that there hasn't been too much damage. An earthquake this size near Almaty or Bishkek (a distinct possibility) would be devastating.


  1. I have heard three different things aboput the earthquake. I have heard that it was 7.0 on the richter scaele, 6.6 and 5.8. Which is the right one?

  2. I've heard lots of things too. I think the 6.6 is the closest though. There was one in Kazakhstan a few days later that was in the 5 range. But it's always hard to figure things out in Central Asia.
