Monday, July 17, 2006 at 08:19:28 UTC


July 17, 2006, SOUTH OF JAVA, INDONESIA, MW=7.7

[This earthquake has a larger moment and centroid-time 
shift than would have been predicted from initial reported 
magnitudes. Its source mechanism may be similar to that
of the September 1992, Nicaragua, tsunami earthquake.]
