Perhaps this has something to do with the Super Moon coming this week.

7.5 ... that's big.

Yeah. That's why I made thread last week about it, and everyone thinks the idea of a super duper moon causing them is nuts.

That was nuts yeah mates felt it all over NZ - strongest I've ever felt in Auckland. I was wondering if one would hit today given the supermoon and was explaining the theory to someone as we watched it come up .

a reply to: TrueAmerican I was keeping an eye out for quakes after I read your thread about the super moon. I was discussing it with my dad and said that I was expecting to see a big earthquake tomorrow or so. He agreed that a super moon may cause bigger quakes ... good theory TA

So is there still any doubt about the moon and it's correlation to earth quakes? Super moon and all...

Seems all the tidal forces from our entire solar system plays some roll in one form or another.

Yeah i had no idea you made that thread, i made one a few days ago. I expect something to occur but not really off the charts when i wrote it there, but i'm rethinking it a bit now.

Makes me wonder what parts of the world are the most Vulnerable to disasters, usually it's in Countries where monsoons and flooding are more predictable, earthquakes though that's a whole different story, I could see the west coast getting something. Like around the Ring of Fire in the Pacific and the underwater volcanic activity that's been on going.

Wow. Darn close to New Zealand. Excellent find.

Just looking at EMSC to see if there were any foreshocks for this one and not much to be honest unless we can count the 5.8 back in February - let's hope this is the main shock for them .....
www.emsc-csem.org... - shoot ! that link doesn't show the history - for anyone interested you can use that link to type in South Island New Zealand and then 'get events' it will pull up the history.

Any news yet on damage or aid request?

BBC and RT just have headlines and no info.

I have a friend there. He messaged me about twenty minutes ago and lol'd about it, so it must not have been serious where he was at. He said it shook the whole house but no damage.

The moon is currently 357,500 kms from earth, it's still just over 24 hours away from Perigee.

357,500 kms is not that close when compared to previous Perigees this year and previous years...

So what's the difference? Because right now, it's not the proximity of the moon.

Was a rather long rolling earthquake, felt all the way up in Hamilton which is pretty rare, quite a few aftershocks in the 4s and 5s but not much being reported overall in the way of damage here, it was more likely a 6.6 than the 7.4 being mentioned around the world. www.geonet.org.nz...

PTWC has this quake at a 7.9:

www.tsunami.gov...

I know for sure this quake has got to be over 7 from just the propagation alone, and the s-waves I am watching on spectro worldwide. So no, I am not down with geonet's 6.6, sorry.

Holy crap that's a big quake. And there was I think a 6.2 in Japan a couple days ago, too.

Were there two quakes over 7?? Not sure if I'm reading it wrong, but on the tsunami report it shows two, almost the exact same coordinates. Am I just misinterpreting it?
