pirate Undersea tremor...

Just heard there's been a 7.1 quake 1000nm off the NE coast of Brazil... seems Recife etc are on alert.
Not sure if its a hoax as nothing on the news as yet.

Re: Undersea tremor...

According to "the Mirror", the quake was 356 miles underground, in dense forest. Such quakes do not normally cause much above ground damage.
