Seismologists investigated the tremors, but concluded that there was no direct indication of a big quake on the horizon. Less than a month later, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake killed more than 300 people.

BMI is the worst measure to gauge obesity, there are many factors that need to be considered to determine obesity. I workout 5 times a week for more than an hour each session, weights and cardio, I don't smoke, don't drink, eat healthy. I am broad shouldered. Yet according to the BMI I am obese. My son who studies Human Movement and podiatry tells me that the BMI is the biggest load of crock ever.
