M6.8 earthquake - 56km NNE of Shwebo, Myanmar, Sunday, 11 November 2012 at 01:12 (GMT)

Update Sun 11 Nov 13:20
An extremely dangerous shallow (10 km) 6.8 magnitude earthquake occurred this morning in Mynamar (former Burma) at 07:42 local time. The quake was felt all over the country and in Thailand and parts of China.
Early reports mention 14 fatalities, but it has to be feared that this number will increase a a lot since the these reports came from areas far from the epicenter where significant destruction and casualties could be expected.
Several aftershocks of magnitudes 5-6 have occurred already.
The epicenter is about 400 km from the complex tectonic border with the Himalaya and 200 km east of the tectonic plate boundary between the Indian and Eurasian plate. The quake occurred at the intersection of 2 important regional fault lines, the Shan Fault (which caused the 1912 quake) and the Sagaing fault (1931 and 1956 quakes).
