Town Crier! is random snippets of Shanghai news that just may have an effect on your life...

Fresh from the news that the city was rocked (read: didn't notice) a magnitude 2.0 earthquake in Pudong on July 10, reports are emerging that a second, even more insignificant 1.3 quake woke absolutely no one in Jiading District at 7.09am yesterday.

Over to the Shanghai Daily for the details:

AN earthquake with a magnitude of 1.3 occurred in Jiading District at 7:09am yesterday, said the Shanghai Earthquake Administration.

The epicenter of the quake was at 31.3 degrees north latitude and 121.3 degrees east longitude, with a focal depth of 6 kilometers. The epicenter was 22km from People’s Square, according to the administration.

If things keep escalating at this alarming rate, these tremors are going to end up so small not even the Shanghai Earthquake Administration will be able to pick them up.

A scary thought indeed...
