please send me any questions about these earthquakes, earthquakes in general, seismology, anything related at all. The more questions I get the more info you get! Otherwise its just going to be facts about the earthquakes 😉 you know the stuff I find interesting.
I’ll post the questions here:

– aftershock sequences
– waves and how they are felt in different materials
