Pevolca, IGN or CSIC almost never gives information about actual size of jacuzzi (whirpool). EarthquakeReport estimates the size of jacuzzi from the picture below dated pointing that Jacuzzi looks far bigger than was initially expected. They related the size of the helicopter overflying the stain. We assume that the picture has been taken on November 9. (EarthquakeReport)
