This is the earthquake that happened one day before the Japanese 8.9 magnitude somewhere near the border of Burma within the province of Yunnan in China. The death toll is some 25. Both the Chinese and Japanese earthquakes were results of shifts in different tectonic plates though.

Wow, I had no idea that there was an earthquake in China just the day before! My thoughts go out to all the folks in Asia. Extra scary that I just dropped my parents off at the airport to embark on a month long tour of Asia. I just hope that the worse is over.

I hope so too! I'd be in Shanghai this weekend! There are prediction that another earthquake going to hit Japan next month. Some 9+ magnitude!

I read somewhere that geologists have revised the 8.9 up to a full 9.0 over the weekend as they continued examining their seismic data.
