Been busy in the hills west of the Matukituki River overnight

up to 6:45:03 p.m. NZST last night
mag2= 24, mag3=10, mag4= 0, mag5= 1, total=35, total energy released=7376.738TTNT


up to 3:41:38 a.m. NZST this morning
mag2= 73, mag3=21, mag4= 0, mag5= 1, total=95, total energy released=7429.102TTNT


updated interactive map here
here is a timeline graph for 13 hrs of aftershocks


looks like a "classic" decay sequence for this quake, bit of a lag after the initial movement, then a resurgence at the 5 hr mark, then decreasing in size as time goes on.
Looking for a possible small M5 or mid to high M4 over the next few days, but not guaranteed, the 2014 Eketahuna 6.2MLv took 9 months to pop it's Baths Law largest aftershock (1.2 units less than the mainshock ) of 5.46ML, but that was an odd one, even though most of them were small the aftershocks seemed to go on forever. Different geology, Eke. was a Graben quake, looks like Wanaka is a Thrust quake.

I am hearing a 7.5 in PNG. Could trigger tsunami. trying to confirm now.

yep breaking news here now. 7.5 in the New Ireland region of Papua New Guinea

I just saw the 7.4 in PNG on GEE, that looks like a real whopper. It wouldn't surprise me much if it was upgraded to a stronger magnitude


Edit: And unless there's another one not yet listed elsewhere, it looks like it's already hitting the seismos in MI & FL that I watch. Yikes, that's a potent wave O.O

a reply to: bellagirl
0.4m high is not too bad locally
My first thought was "how could there be a Tsunami when the quake was on land?"
of course across Waterfall Bay on the other side is Bovalpun and and further out across Jacquinot Bay is Pulpul and those other coastal villages mentioned in the list in the link below at max 0.4m
GDACS is the place to go to for Tsunami information, the Pacific Tsunami Center is useless.

even though it's a 5 it didn't release that much energy

compared to

This made me finally get the map of M5's up on my NZ M5Blog, not sure why I took so long, I had a file done early April but never did anything with it. I have also brought the style in to line with NZ 2015 and Japan Blogs

I read the alert given out by USGS and it said the waves would be 0.3 to 1 meter, pretty much similar to that which PNG experienced with the 7.5 quake on the 4th. Still though, 3 7's within a month on one side of the world. This side has been relatively quiet in comparison. I've always believed every action has a reaction.

Over the past few years, every sector of the ring of fire has had largish EQs to relieve pressure ... well ... all except one!

It is a concern to me that the North East quadrant, that is the section that runs along the North American continent, has not had any really big ones in a long time.

One would assume that the pressure just keeps building.

It is a worry

another 7.2 mag in New Guinea (SW of Panguna) this afternoon,

I'd say that sometime next week there will be a large one just north of there or just north of that undersea volcano near Oregon, they match up on a heat map and sine wave I've been using to work out my theory, they're also close to the same latitude with each other along the ring of fire.

Maybe I should put this in "Predictions" lol

Agreed, it's been slow over on the coast line. It's been a few year now since I've seen a report of anything large. We've had small 3.2 in that area.

USGS


Parts of North Texas just experienced the most powerful earthquake so far to rumble through this part of the world: a 4.0-magnitude temblor in Venus, just south of Mansfield and west of Midlothian. According to the U.S. Geological Survey — and countless reports on Twitter and via email — it occurred at 5:58 p.m.

It was felt from Arlington to Mansfield, Midlothian to Alvarado, Cleburne to Dallas, according to the USGS. There’s even one report from as faraway as Austin.

22 quake swarm south end of Lake Taupo overnight NZST, 2.69 the biggest.


Leaping Burn/Wanaka still pumping out the 3's and 2's (x9)


I've never really been happy with the thumbnails I have been doing this year on Blogger, the size they set is so small it is hard to get a map that small that you can decipher what is going on.
I have come up with this idea, a Pie Chart for each day thumbnail
couple of examples below;
NZ


Japan

The colours match the magnitude colours of the icons on the maps, regular readers will figure that out themselves.
I think the Pies pretty well tell the story at a quick glance.
Japan basically gets a yellow M4 every day, but when a M5 hits you can obviously see that (orange) on the chart and go to that map. The Pies are reasonably clear images, unlike the maps thumbnails that make you squint to see what happened that day.
I'm not sure what makes readers click on a particular map (via the thumbnail) but I suspect based on the pageview stats that there is a morbid fascination with big earthquakes.
