7.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Nation of Georgia....Not Reported in West
Seven-point earthquake hits Georgia

TBILISI, February 6 (Itar-Tass) - An up to 7-points earthquake shook Georgia early on Monday morning, Itar-Tass was told at the Georgian National Seismology Centre.

The epicentre of the quake, exceeding 5 points on the Richter scale, occurred on the administrative border between the Ambrolauri and Oni districts in northwest of the country, seismologists report.

According to Otari Siradze, the governor of Racha-Lechkhumi Territory, which includes the Ambrolauri and Oni districts, the earthquake has caused no human casualties or damages.

The tremors were also felt in Tbilisi, Kutaisi and several other towns and districts of Georgia.

A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7 hit a mountainous region of western Georgia Monday morning.

The quake struck at 8:08 in the morning and its epicenter was in mountains dividing the regions of Racha and Imereti, about 150 kilometers (93 miles) from the capital.

No serious injuries or deaths have been reported but tremors were felt throughout a wide swath of the country, as far east as Tbilisi and as far west as Kutaisi and Samtredia.

Will someone answer me this? How come both Russia and Georgia are reporting this earthquake as a 'strong' 7.0 but the US says:

Magnitude 4.5 - GEORGIA (SAK'ART'VELO) - usivau

2006 February 6 09:43:27 UTC
A light earthquake occurred at 09:43:27 (UTC) on Monday, February 6, 2006. The magnitude 4.5 event has been located in GEORGIA (SAK'ART'VELO). (This event has been reviewed by a seismologist.)

Not too long ago (a couple of months) there was information that the range of earthquake measurements was being changed.

The announcement was in the US, but you'd think that quakes would be measured the same world-wide.

The significance was, that stronger earthquakes would appear to be less severe under the new guidelines.

Yeah something funky bigtime is going on over at the USGS. Just a silent observer here, red herring for me was when the Director resigned in December. Then they took the magnitude scales (the little visuals) off of the world and US views. And they made the views zoomed out from before so now you can't tell one little square from another unless you take time to click click click. Getting ready for the birth pangs?

If you go to that link and click on "Last 30 Days Earthquakes" you'll find earthquakes greater than 6.0 in that list.
