Russian Earthquake Not Close To Petr' Sub Base

It looks like the magnitude 7.7 earthquake that hit the Kamchatka peninsula was a long way from the Russian naval base near Petropavlovsk. The epicenter was reported as being 125 miles northeast of Il'pyrskiy, which is about 3/4 of the way up the penisula of which Petr' is at the bottom. Luckily, this is probably about as uninhabited an area as you could hope to find in Eurasia, outside of the Himalayas.
