Houston, Texas / MMI V (Moderate shaking): This is the second of two remotely detonated earthquakes to hit the Iran/Iraq border that originated from triggers in Houston, Texas. It is also connected to the earthquake in Honduras on new Year's morning. That earthquake is connected to the arrest of a woman in France who is alleged to be "recruiting for Isis" according to the Guardian Unlimited. This is not a joke. It is very bad policy.
