Earthquake at 01:36 UT
Once again the spectre of space weather correlation with earthquakes turns up.
This was a shallow earthquake causing significant damage, >20 deaths reported so far. Rescue teams are assembling. People trapped under collapsed structures.
A large number of aftershocks have occurred, mostly much deeper than the main ‘quake.
