Strong deep earthquake in Myanmar, also felt in India and Bangladesh
We have no data as of yet, but we get reports of light shaking in Bangladesh
Based on an increasing number of visitors joining us from India / Bangladesh, we believe that an earthquake was felt. When you are one of the people who experienced this earthquake, please fill in the form behind “I Felt A (not Listed) Earthquake”. Thank you.
Update 16:59 UTC : We have found the source of the earthquake in Myanmar, 52 km NW of Monywa. Preliminary Magnitude 5.5 at a depth of 126 km.
The depth explains in part why the earthquake was felt in a wide radius.
This earthquake is harmless for all 3 countries involved.

We have disconnected the Earthquake list for a short time, as we are experiencing a slowing of the page loading time. As soon as this is fixed or improved, we will reactivate the mist. Sorry for the hassle. This may happen now and then until we move to a dedicated server (see message below)

We still need $816 to obtain our goal for this year. Due to too high traffic we had to migrate to more performant servers. If You like this site, please consider donating, even a small amount will help us. 
More improvements to come the following months.
