    its been lowered to a M 6.5

    Yeah right !!! I really cannot understand the USGS sometimes. The amplitude of this event was very large ... maxing out the AtoD
    I was more expecting the mag. to be raised to around 7.5.
    Other M 6.5 events from this region have has just a small fraction of the amplitude of this event
