Panama M6.8 earthquake - World's Messiest Tectonics

"Your sub-stratum makes my lava flow, and that's all you need to know."

You won't be able to get that tune out of your head!  I can't.

Anyway, I digress.  You see the beautiful subduction zones above and below this earthquake, and the mess in-between.  Yuck!  Lots of motion in this mess, and one wonders what the max earthquake can be.  It'll do 8's, but no 9's.  I don't think this earthquake had much PGV.  We wait to see the news.
