  1. Phew, what a relief! I saw the Facebook headline of Deadly Earthquakes for November 15 and saw New Zealand, and promptly froze thinking NZ had had another massive quake like last week in Christchurch, and I had missed the Google News Reader notice or the Twitter Tweet about it. What a relief it is to know it happened 109 years ago and only killed one person.
