Columbia M6.2 earthquake - complexity abounds

This would be the rinkiest of any earthquake expected in the area -- an M6.2 normal (tension) earthquake far from any big city.  As with all cities these days, they empty the office buildings and flood the streets with people.  Some day that common practice will have a lot killed.

I just love the picture.  You couldn't get any messier!  The Caribbean Plate is pushing, locked with South America, and Panama is getting stretched.  And there is subduction.
