Looks like the tsunami has some effects here as well. USGS scientists noted that the water levels shot up then went down in repsonce to the geo shifting.



RICHMOND, Va. - The South Asian earthquake that spawned deadly tsunami waves also shifted water levels by at least 3 feet in a geologically sensitive Virginia well some 9,600 miles away from the epicenter, researchers say.

Well, you learn something new everday---if you're lucky


The Christiansburg well, in the western part of the state, also shows regular, but small, changes caused by tides.


--from your link

I often wondered if freshwater was affected by tides, but this shows that even groundwater is affected.

Wow! this is the tread I've been looking for!

Can someone tell me if this large fluctuation in ground water levels (approx. 3 feet, 9000 miles from the epicenter) could lubricate other fault lines, causing them to react.

PS. Hey Sanctum, sorry for the hassle.
