Buildings sway 500 miles away

24 Mar 11 - Two strong earthquakes struck northeastern Myanmar (Burma) less than a minute apart Thursday night, says this article in the Huffington Post.

Although buildings swayed 500 miles (800 km) away in Bangkok and in Hanoi, no tsunami was generated.

The first temblor - a 7.0-magnitude - was just six miles (10 km) deep, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). It was followed by another of the same strength but far deeper.

The quakes struck along Myanmar's borders with Thailand and Laos.

Myanmar is bordered by the People's Republic of China on the northeast, Laos on the east, Thailand on the southeast, Bangladesh on the west, and India on the northwest.

          Remember Piers Corbyn's warning of extreme
          weather and earthquake danger?
