[quote:Mr. Predictor:MV8yMDYwNjU4XzM0NjY2MDE5XzJFRjJGODZC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 10961309:MV8yMDYwNjU4XzM0NjYzODAxX0ZGRTA5Mg==] An earthquake that measures 5.0 on the Richter scale has a shaking amplitude 10 times larger than one that measures 4.0, and corresponds to an energy release of √1000 ≈ 31.6 times greater. OK so 31.6 times enegy, but 10 times larger, a bit comfusing. Can any1 clarify? [/quote] the scale is like the db scale, it's exponential [/quote]
Here's some doom for you:

Apparently since this would be 32 times the strength of a magnitude 9, the shaking could continue for up to an hour and tsunamis would continue for days. Japan would most likely be underwater and there would be no way to save the melted fuel pool at reactor 4 and other reactor's elsewhere which would be at threat. This would be the end of the world...
