The article mentions 600 quakes in the last 10 days. If you look into the data, there were not 600 quakes in the last 10 days in that area. There were a few, but nothing resembling 600.
Or was the author trying to make it more fantastic by equating "600 quakes" to mean "600 quakes and aftershocks"?
We must be clear on these things.
