Yet, as with any sale of such magnitude and complexity, until offers start to come in, no-one can know how long it will take to resolve.
It followed a series of warnings that an eruption was possible after a spate of recent earthquakes in the region, including over a dozen tremors measured at more than 2.5 magnitude on Sunday.
此前，该地区最近发生了一连串地震，包括周日发生的十几次震级超过 2.5 级的地震，随后发出了一系列警告，称该地区可能会喷发。
“It’s kind of a perfect storm, in terms of damage relative to the magnitude.”

order of magnitude
Earthquakes have great magnitude in that they are powerful. Their power is rated by their level of magnitude, or how much energy they release relative to other earthquakes.
In math, magnitude compares numbers by powers of 10. If your weekly allowance was $10, but your brother’s was $100, his allowance would be one order of magnitude higher than yours. If your sister’s was $10,000, hers would be three orders of magnitude higher. A difference of that magnitude is just not fair!
在数学中，数量级比较数字的 10 次方。如果您每周的津贴是 10 美元，而您兄弟的每周津贴是 100 美元，那么他的津贴将比您高一个数量级。如果你姐姐的是 10,000 美元，她的会高出三个数量级。如此巨大的差异是不公平的！
“Whatever. Lucille Ball talking to me from the TV is weirder by several orders of magnitude than anything that’s happened to me so far,” said Shadow.

With so many marginally qualified climbers flocking to Everest these days, a lot of people believe that a tragedy of this magnitude was overdue.

Nonetheless, from Ishmael’s perspective this inclement weather should not be allowed to overshadow the trial of Kabuo Miyamoto, which was an affair of a different sort entirely and of a greater magnitude.

Of stars, "brightness or brilliancy expressed as a number" (now on a logarithmic scale) from 1640s, translating Ptolemy’s Greek megethos.Related entries & more
震级（n.）c。 1400，“卓越，辉煌；” 15 世纪初，“大小或范围的伟大”来自拉丁语 magnitudo“伟大、体积、大小”，来自 magnus“伟大”（来自 PIE 词根 meg-“伟大”的后缀形式）+ -tudo，构成抽象名词的后缀源自形容词和分词（参见 -tude）。意思是“大小、范围”，无论是大还是小来自 15 世纪初。关于星星，从 1640 年代开始，“以数字表示的亮度或亮度”（现在以对数刻度表示），翻译托勒密的希腊语 megethos。相关条目及更多
