8.4 mag quake Libya - officially DIDN'T HAPPEN

This message is an error that has been generated by one of our data providers that operate an automatic location system. Automatic systems can sometimes generate false detections, and wrong magnitude. This detection is not associated to a real earthquake. So there has not been any M8 in Lybia.

Normally we let this kind of information, even if it is wrong, on our web site because it is only published in our "For Seismologists Only" page with an associated disclaimer. But this time we decided to remove it from the web page as many people were wondering if there was a M8 in Lybia.

Best regards,

    Proof... ahahahahahaha. I don't think this dude knows what the hell he's talking about. 8.4? Where? Is he retarded? You people obviously don't understand how that would affect the area around it and would be quite impossible to hide. I can call someone in Libya right now.

    no, because it was a three point something that was initially recorded incorrectly.a quake that size in the med would be noticed by more countries than libya,that fool dutchsinse is responsible for lying that he has absolute proof it happened.

    Until Oprah Winfrey, Conan Obrien, Elen Degeneres, Glenn Beck, or Donald Trump talk about this earthquake on TV it wont have happened yet. At least not in America. Is Libya talking about it?
