An interesting article on Oklahoma's quakes:

May not be directly related to the two quakes, but still changes are happening.

Mt Ruapehu’s Crater Lake has been heating again. Since early December 2014 the temperature has risen from 15 °C and has now reached temperatures over 40 °C. Similar temperatures were reached in March 2011 and April 2014, before the lake cooled.

Data from a recent Crater Lake sampling (14 January) has shown there are several changes in the lake chemistry. In particular we see evidence for increased amounts of volcanic gas discharging through the lake. The increase in the lake temperature and gas discharge is probably indicative of renewed heating of the hydrothermal system under the lake. Observations from recent visits and pilot reports confirm some convection is present in the lake. The lake has changed from a blue/green colour to light grey as a consequence.

That will stir up the crabs!
My guess is that its the off season right now for crab fishing, being Winter up there.

Seems another quake swarm is starting in Tjörnes Fracture Zone, Iceland. First swarm of the year there. There is actually 2 swarms, one near Grimsey, and another near Kópasker. So far there has been 50 quakes within 24 hours, strongest magnitude 3.1, lot variation in depth. TFZ still could have enough tension for magnitude 6.0+ quake. In 1976 magnitude 6.3 quake hit the Kópasker.

That must be what was bothering hubby & I tonight!
I finally pulled up USGS & saw the 5.6 in Venezuela in red!
(Since downgraded to a 5.3.)
Thought that's not that big.
Then saw the 6.0 in Panama, not in red!
What's up with that Useless???

Then I remembered a friend of ours just went to Panama for 10 days or 2 weeks!
5.1 in Venezuela this morning, then a 5.3 tonight & now a 6.0.
Getting bigger & moving west.
Sure hope that's the end of it!

Hey good news in Oklahoma. I missed this, but back in December, the OK Corporation Commission instituted new regulations on injection wells.

Due to a huge increase in earthquakes in recent years, the Corporation Commission began using a “traffic light” system in December 2013.

Under the system, wells within a six-mile radius of a magnitude-4.0 earthquake are placed under operating restrictions. If additional earthquakes occur within six miles of an active well in that area, the commission can order the operator to halt injection while more information is gathered.


They shut down the injection well nearest the Cherokee, OK quakes yesterday.

Considering another Mag 4.3 just shook the area, it seems their shutdown order comes in the nick of time. It will be interesting to see how long it takes the quakes in the area to subside.

But, If the quakes continue in the epicentral region of the closed well, we may have to rethink this causal relationship.
I really hope this helps--the local residents need a break.

Not a lot been happening in NZ since that 5.951 on 05/01/15
This was interesting yesterday, near Gisborne

it was after a swarm of 9 quakes, M1.89 to M2.98 at Lake Repongaere, then there were 4 aftershocks M1.85 to M3.83

interactive map

note new icons

I was doing some animations using the pins I created at Christmas, and realized that the pin marker wasn't actually pointing to the epicentre correctly, the actual epicentre was in at the base of the round pin head, not at the bottom of the pin shaft where it goes into the map surface, really screwed up some of my mapping. Also with the "old" orbs with the shadow at the base, gave the wrong impression too, the epicentre is actually the centre of the orb, not the base (shadow) where its sitting on the map. I think these new ones show a truer location, the epicentre is at the centre of the circle.
By using Dropbox I have substituted the new circles for the old orbs, so all my old interactive maps will now show the new icons right across the board.

30 days since the M5.951 at Gibson Stream west of the Wilberforce River, Canterbury, NZ.
Quite a big quake, but not that many aftershocks in 30 days
Most of them occurred in the first 24 hours.
Reviewed Data.
I made a couple of animations ( using the new circle markers)

What is interesting is the M2's are mainly along Gibson Creek where the main shock was at, whereas the M3's tend to be north, under Mt Eliot, Eliot Ridge and NW to Mt Bannatyne
This is totally opposite to the preliminary data of 5th Jan which showed the M3's to the south of Gibson and Unknown Stream in the Cascade Range.
Looks like Geonet struggled with this one right from the start, if you recall they initially had the 5.951 at Lake Coleridge.

interactive map for 5th Jan for comparison

Just goes to show, even tracking the aftershocks in the first few hours/days doesn't necessarily give any clue as to where the movement is going, especially when the initial (preliminary) data is wrong.
based on the M2 map there is a Fault along Gibson Creek West to East, but based on the M3's its trending NW to SE in the mountains parallel (west) to Griffiths Stream
Based on the preliminary data it was going South

Damn. I should have written down my prediction. Even if it was the most meager of earthquakes. I noticed that one of the ongoing earthquakes in Northern Nevada- near Oregon, popped up to above 3M. Tiny I agree. But I immediately wonder if Idaho would respond. I believe the swarms are connected. Sure enough, Idaho just chimed in.

Given that Nevada and Idaho have rich volcanic histories, I'll let you all do the speculating about the sources since I think some of you know where I would put my bet.

Funny, the two quakes are about the same magnitude. 3.1, 3.2. And, yes I know there are lots of little one under 3.
