Hey Baron. I didn't know about the earthquake. I was in Vietnam. I'm just at the border now, waiting for a bus to the next big city in China, so as I can fly back to Beijing. Wow. Any damage from this one?

Lots of rockslides, some bigger like one which closed the road on the Hamakua Coast, others smaller like the softball-basketball sized rocks that ended up on Queen Kaahumanu Hwy. I don't think it did much in the way of structural damage, I was in the shower at the time and kept going figuring the water pipe might break should it get stronger.

Still plenty of aftershocks and other smaller temblors since then.
