Proof that earthquakes are caused by giants?

Thanks Adam. In many ways though a fortunate event. There was no one killed which is absolutely amazing. As sad as it is to see some nice old buildings destroyed, some of the weaker buildings have been removed (which may be a good thing for when the "big one" strikes).
Definately a frightening experience and I never appreciated how horrible the after shakes are after a while (these random events play mind games with people).

If the earthquake had been during the day / evening it would have been a different story.
