I like the crazy eyes and accent in the video
What kind of accent is that? It doesn't really sound like real auzzi.

Possibly an encoding error?

1.2 entered as a 12.0...

Would that value be something like 1000 times greater then a 10? Doubt it would not be pretty obvious and huge news.

He's from Wolverhampton. That explains a lot.

After doing some reading the largest earthquake ever was 9.5. It's believed a 10 or higher is nearly impossible because the crust cannot build up to that high of an energy potential without having an earthquake before that point.

Maybe we just nuked west Africa?

Depth of 0, has to be a glitch or elephant farting too close

That would seem the most obvious explanation, but why haven't they corrected it almost 5 hours later?

like has been posted in four hours we all would know. 9.5 is the largest recorded mag EQ. USGS doesn't show anything.
and finally...

GlobalIncidenMap.com should never be trusted without 2 or three corroborating reports. It is lame.

There is no specific location listed on the map and the depth is listed as 0.0. Is it possible an explosion of some sort could register as an earthquake?

I have to admit, I did wonder if a nuke would register as a seismic event.

There are only two things I could think of that would cause this if it real. One be a huge asteroid strike. The other would be a supervolcano eruption. Anyway, anything that powerful would be felt world wide and we'd know about it by now.

WTH is going on?

This is very strange indeed.

I hope it's a glitch, anything else would mean something very bad.

Although I would expect more than just one seismograph to pick up something that large?

Can't be right....

There would have been reports on this all over the world...

Its gotta be an error of some sort...

Maybe this should be a lesson that everyone who's said that GIR is not reliable is correct? I've noticed many non-existent quakes pop up on there over the few years I've been actively quake-watching on ATS, and don't give them my clicks any more.

While the USGS isn't considered Top Dog by the more seasoned, EMSC is considered to be a good one, and I try to cross reference with them as much as possible (USGS habits die hard)

The largest I can find today is this:

earthquake.usgs.gov...

And that was a 7.3 near Nicaragua.

An asteroid strike on Ebola Central. How convenient. Well....this is a conspiracy site.


I understand that the source should be questioned, but USGS does not have a pristine record in reporting quakes and it wouldn't take too much effort to dig up a few they've missed..I can think of one close to home at least very recently that was recorded on many sensors, and completely omitted by them.

Exactly!
I am reporting that I did not feel a thing.

There's nothing on the USGS over a 5.2 today and UC Berkeley is showing nothing over a 2.5 in Africa at all. Those are two well known and well respected sources.


1 Day: All Magnitude Earthquakes

If there was a 12.0 that happened 2 hours ago, where's the tsunami? According to the source the 12.0 was off the African coast.

I have GEE (Global Earthquake Explorer) running right now, nothing is amiss at all. Something that large definitely would have all of them going bonkers to the hilt.
