8.4 earthquake in Libya!!! Was all over all the seismic sites Now Gone!!! (Daily Paul):

HOLY CRAP! I’m not a cospiracy guy i swear, but i just watched it happen right the hell in front of my eyes. At 9:08 8.4 registered in Libya, was on all the sites, now it’s all gone, didn’t see anything on the news so i got on here to see what you guys were saying. A few youtubers got screen shots from a few of the sites, NO MEDIA COVERAGE AT ALL. Just google it and filter with latest.

This message is an error that has been generated by one of our data providers that operate an automatic location system. Automatic systems can sometimes generate false detections, and wrong magnitude. This detection is not associated to a real earthquake. So there has not been any M8 in Lybia.

Normally we let this kind of information, even if it is wrong, on our web site because it is only published in our “For Seismologists Only” page with an associated disclaimer. But this time we decided to remove it from the web page as many people were wondering if there was a M8 in Lybia.

Best regards,
