Epicentre location edit

The Qamdo, Xizang wikipedia links. Is that supposed to be a link to a city?

For OpenStreetMap, I was trying to figure out the approximate location of the epicentre see this page

Intensity Richter vs. Moment-magnitude edit

Keep n mind that the Chinese authorities use the w:Richter magnitude scale while the USGS uses the w:Moment magnitude scale, so indeed they're not really conflicting. These are two different scales. However scince Richter was used for decades also the English language press is messing up both of them. --Matthiasb (talk) 10:20, 14 April 2010 (UTC)Reply
