    was about to post on this

    It's a HUGE event !! my system overloading for some 10 - 15 minutes
    I'm even deeming 7.8 as too small a value ... was more expecting 8.2 - 8.5
    Its only the really big events at that distance from me that max out the system

    Location: Lat 0.372°N, Long 79.940°W
    Depth: 19.2 km (11.9 mi) - fairly shallow, so a lot of damage done.
