Just jotting down thoughts. The Idaho/Nevada earthquakes don't really follow an exact pattern that I can figure out. I have to admit it's not as I first thought and the Nevada ones would always precede the Idaho earthquakes. This time around it seems like the reverse is true.

But here's the thing, neither area is demonstrating regular faulting. In that there's a main strike and aftershocks and so on. They resemble the constant small swarms at Yellowstone and other KNOWN volcanic areas. Heck, hear Challis there's hot springs. Are they connected ? I don't know. But I sure "feel" that way. I want to think it's my imagination but I study the american continent pretty good. One the west coast we can say California is a major large fault. Most of the swarms in California are related to this. The others, like volcanic areas resemble smalls swarms.

I've watched earthquakes in the surrounding area and they don't exactly resemble major tectonic movements. Also, the fact is we're talking about mid-continental earthquakes. With the history of volcanoes all through Nevada, and Idaho, volcanic action must be considered. I want to link both activities to Yellowstone. I figured maybe the chamber was being recharged. But it's not directly or immediate at the moment because Yellowstone inflation has paused and is subsiding slowly and there are only small swarms of earthquakes. I don't know. But the action isn't happening at Yellowstone, it's happening under Nevada and Idaho and I honest think there's much more to the story and I don't have thing else but a hunch.

Gosh I wish I could see the future and find out if I'm right. ah, one day

I didn't even post the numbers. For the last seven days, Idaho 32 small earthquakes and I think Nevada was 26 ish.

Everything I said could be wrong. There is a large fault in the area. These earthquakes could be a precursor. I've done a bit more reading on trying to find the source of the hot springs and end up find lots of evidence of a large earthquake there 20 years ago or so. In fact, I know I read up on this before and posted something. Either way, I don't think I can ignore this area because I really think something bigger is brewing. Let's forget about the link to Nevada and or Yellowstone. These quakes are continuing. At present over the last seven days it's nearly 50. And there all restively small. The biggest 2.9M. If this is tectonic solely, then a big one may be soon to come.

Quake swarm around Langjökull (Long Glacier) in Iceland. I don't remember last time when quake swarm hit there, so it isn't very common to have swarms there. Volcanically the area is relatively quiet, there has been only 32 eruptions during the last 10 000 years. I believe it's in the volcano called Prestahnúkur (Peak of the priests). The volcano is still active, there is high temperature area at it's feet. The last known eruption was in 3350 BCE. It's part of Langjökull volcano system.

Not sure if the activity is tectonic or volcanic. The quakes are relatively strong, strongest being 3.2 magnitude. So far 28 quakes and the activity is currently low.

In a few days .............

SW off Kyushu Update
New data download to 10/12/2015 23:31:07JST (10/12/2015 14:31:07UTC) shows 1460 events, versus 866 based on the early data previously.
You can see the changes in this animated 21 day mark timeline graph.

and on the 21 day map

now running out to 26 days elapsed time

only 32 events @ SW off Kyushsu since I posted that, that's for 2 days
so looks like it will taper out

yeah, it seems every big quake has it's own personality, they rarely follow an exact pattern of aftershocks.
When that one split into 4 areas I thought there might be something more to come
seems not

only a short period though, in the big scheme of things

I wanted to note that I forgot about the Idaho earthquake back in January that was around 5m.

So, they could be aftershocks from a while back. Who knows? But, there's still a bit of shaking.

Let's forget Idaho, Nevada. I just noticed that South America is really quiet.
quiet over the last week. Today, especially. Makes me think something's brewing. It's probably nothing.

Also, just a note on the crazy bend near New Madrid. It's still popping off small ones. My worst fear is that these normalish earthquakes may not be isolated. I've been a good boy and have barely mentioned Oklahoma. But. If an earthquake 5 m + hits again, how can it not be felt in the nearby fault systems. Oh, maybe it's the time of year making me think about the New Madrid quakes of 1811=1812. Wow, I just freaked myself and realized the first one hit on December 16, 1811. I should watch a documentary on them again. The story almost reads like a horror. The events to the settlers were beyond their wildest imaginings. They thought it was the end of the world. Imagine sand boils. Is that what they call them? I'll have to refresh my memory. That crazy bend in the river was due to the earthquakes. Crazy.

Thanks for posting that video---hadn't seen that one and it is one of the better ones I've seen.
Two hundred and four years ago tonight---!!!
A friend of mine once had a job at the old Missouri State capitol. They have shelves full of newspaper reports of those times and during slow periods he would read through the accounts. All throughout the region in the years following those quakes there were reports of households where the settlers had obviously just loaded up what would fit on a wagon and left the area. Dishes left on tables, livestock left in fields. There were scavengers who gathered up the items left behind and held auction sales of the items. Some estimates were that up to 40% of the population of the immediate area fled at that time. Those estimates come from all the unpaid tax bills and the abandoned farmsteads.

I hadn't checked the magnitude of the one we had yesterday but I knew it above a 2 because it rearranged the pictures on my walls. According to this site it was a 3 and although I didn't actually feel it, I can always tell by looking at the pictures on the walls.

I have been watching the New Madrid area for weeks now. Things have gotten a tad busy.

I was thinking about the fact that it's December too. Tomorrow is the 16th.

USGS pretty slack on covering the Banda Sea aftershocks of the 6.8/6.9 of 09/12/2015
only 28 events listed on the 7 day and 30 day lists.

Geofon have done a better job, 42 on their list.
mag3= 1 , mag4= 29 mag5= 11 , mag6= 1 , total= 42
TTNT Energy Released so far 253,318.49

Bing Map GFZ Banda Sea
Note: only showing 41 on the map ??!?!?

and USGS have the whole series NE of Geofon's

someone has got it wrong

Magnitude 6.5
Date time 2015-12-17 19:49:56.9 UTC
Location 15.90 N ; 93.30 W
Depth 95km

Deep ones can always lead to more shallow/serious earthquakes. Potential foreshock?

This is a foreshock..... you notice no aftershocks yet. but up north in Nevada things are getting very active.

Pressure from this quake has put pressure more towards the north now.... be aware and stay safe everyone, My prediction may not have come true of a large quake happening a few days ago but it could be a day late. and i just realized that i said 13 and 14 and if you ignore the 1 and add 3+4 you get 7 then add a 1 to the front of it and its today.

What is even more nuts is if you add 13 +14 you get 27 which is still today ..........12/17/2015..... X2/X7/XXXX.

And if you add the numbers in 2015 like this 2+ 15 you get 17

2+1+5 = 8:00 pm pacific time.

So at 12/17/2015 at 8:00 pm Pacific time

/just a thought

True, there are a lot of active spots. Chile, Hawaii, parts around/on the carribean plate,parts of the US.

It's probably still too soon to tell if its really a foreshock though. we've seen some random 6 and 7 pointers without consequences in the past.

I very rarely see some of you, so I wanted to say that while some of you are here.
