Superb footage of our British Columbia coast, before an M9+ Mega Quake and subsequent tsnami– 4:39 minutes
Enjoy! Amazingly, it was warmer here in the Vancouver area today, than in New Orleans on the Gulf Coast! But when one is already in Paradise…!

Once an earthquake exceeds 7.0 on the Richter magnitude scale (ML), that scale does not work very well. It had the goal of quantifying medium-sized earthquakes (between magnitude 3.0 and 7.0). The Richter magnitude scale was developed in 1935 by Charles F. Richter of the California Institute of Technology as a mathematical device to compare the size of earthquakes. The magnitude of an earthquake is determined from the logarithm of the amplitude of waves recorded by seismographs.)
The moment magnitude scale (abbreviated as MMS; denoted as MW or M) is used by seismologists to measure the size of earthquakes in terms of the energy released. The magnitude is based on the seismic moment of the earthquake, which is equal to the rigidity of the Earth multiplied by the average amount of slip on the fault and the size of the area that slipped. The scale was developed in the 1970s to succeed the 1930s-era Richter magnitude scale (ML). Even though the formulae are different, the new scale retains the familiar continuum of magnitude values defined by the older one. The MMS is now the scale used to estimate magnitudes for all modern large earthquakes by the United States Geological Survey.

13 year old girl with amazing voice! The song Plava Laguna sung by Maïwenn Le Bescosang in the movie 'The Fifth Element'
Inva Mula is perhaps best known to Western filmgoers as the voice of the Diva Plavalaguna (played on-screen by Maïwenn Le Besco) in the 1997 film 'The Fifth Element'.
