Shake It Up

Another earthquake in Israel. It was a 4.7 on the Richter Scale. Why do they always tell you it was on the Richter Scale? If we are talking about earthquakes I automatically assume it is the Richter Scale. Is there another scale for earthquakes with which we may become confused? Does Mr. Richter require you to say that every time you use his scale? Why not write it 4.7 RS?

Anyway, the Temple Mount didn't collapse yet, obviously, but it may be a few days before they report if it was damaged further.
