    When a real earthquake occurs, the location and depth is stated in California. However, I must say that we don't seem to have that many in tremors recently, which is worrying to the geologists. Every small earthquake releases built up stress that can cause a big tremor. Sri Lanka being in the middle of the Indian plate can't have a big one.
