I suppose only earthquakes with death tolls exceeding 100 make it into the news.
We've had 7 earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.0 or greater, and only 1, the one with a death toll of more than 100, made it into the news.
Yes, I feel for the people who lost family and loved ones, and the rebuilding begins, but while we direct our efforts to helping them, we shouldn't be ignoring earthquakes which don't have huge death tolls. They, too, need to be noted, and mapped and watched. They may be precursors to other large earthquakes.
I know professionals are doing this, and I'm very appreciative of their work.
I just think it deserves more recognition.
I think the media is wrong to ignore these earthquakes because they lack a "human tragedy" element.
