CBC Radio just reported:

"This just in: there has been a report of a massive earthquake in East Africa. The US Geological Survey reports that it registered 6.9 on the Richter Scale."

Anyone have any more info.?

CBC is reporting it too, but peg it at 6.8

The USGS said the quake occurred at 12:19 GMT, 3:19 p.m. local time in that region of Africa.
