Holy mackers! an 8.3 ? That's higher then the Japan quake!

Japan's was an 8.9, and this one is currently being classified as a 7.6, so might want to change the title to reflect that:

Forgive my ignorance, but will this potential tsunami have any effect on the west coast?

Were the Oarfish not sighted ion the Gulf Of Mexico though? Seems a bit far away, neat thought though.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake, initially estimated at a magnitude 8.3, occurred at a depth of about 10 kilometers (6 miles).

I'm really borderline ignorant when it comes to earthquakes but is it just me or have many of the latest big earthquakes been as shallow as this one, in the same 6 miles ranges of depth?

What's crazy is that our own 'Puterman' came pretty close to hitting the nail on the head...again!




Never the less my 'guess' is Chile high 7, lo 8 in April and either preceded or followed quickly by low to mid 7 in Santa Cruz/Vanuatu
looking at around April 21 just because there is more often one around that date than not.

Bob, I asked this in the EQ Watch thread, and will ask here in the event you don't check that one. San Cristobal appears to be in the Galapagos Islands, so why is this relevant to the Solomons? You're not disclosing this, either, which is quite misleading. Until I googled it, I assumed you found a cam for the Solomon Islands region. Explain?

Flat wrong, it's not where you think it is, unless "Shipwreck Bay at Puerto Baquerizo" isn't actually in the Galapagos. Google that location, since it's mentioned on the webcam page as the location OF the cam, if you don't believe me.

And with all the googling I've done, there doesn't seem to be any live webcams from that island that I can find. Kirakira's only net access seems to be in their post office alone, they're not very tech-saturated out there yet.
