There was a time not long ago when anything over a 5 was considered a dangerous quake. I'm desensitized to the sixers because what's big now is a 7 or more. WTH?

Yep, that Disaster Prediction app doesn't bother with anything less than a M6. As expected it was screaming at me yesterday about the risk due to the coronal holes (both departing and approaching).
