Preliminary Details

Derived from Event Data Source: EMSC See location map below

Despite the fact that everyone else has this as over Mag 6, USGS is sticking to Mag 5.8 when it is patently obvious that it is Mag 6.0Mw or 6.1Mw

When they eventually change, as they will, I will up date with the USGS details.
