    Default 6.6 Mw - SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS

    They are really getting plastered this morning (my time) - this is the third notice to hit my IN-Box in the past two hours.

    I didn't read your subject title correctly and quickly called Christchurch to check how things were to be asked, what shakes.

    Then I see you wrote South Shetland, all I saw was South and transposed that into South Island.........

    Sitting in Brisbane which is wet and humid but otherwise shake free.

    I think it might be Moment magnitude scale, but you are right, typical of the bloody yanks, they have to reinvent the wheel, and come up with their own name/title for everything
