With Muzzy being MIA (hasn't been here on ATS since August!
)...

Time to add the 2018 Edition!

Luckily, there have not been any earth movements that ATS members needed to report this year!

Muzzy, this is a wonderful New Year's tradition! Thank you for the previous year's threads and all of your work in keeping them going!

Thank you for starting this one. While I don't always participate, I'm always checking the thread to see what is new.

It could be an interesting year. Scientists are predicting a big up tick in quakes in 2018 due to the earth rotation slowing down slightly. Numerous articles on this.

Thanks for that info, here's an article;


Scientists have found strong evidence that 2018 will see a big uptick in the number of large earthquakes globally. Earth's rotation, as with many things, is cyclical, slowing down by a few milliseconds per day then speeding up again.

You and I will never notice this very slight variation in the rotational speed of Earth. However, we will certainly notice the result, an increase in the number of severe earthquakes.

Continued...


To add an interesting twist to the story, 2017 was the 4th consecutive year that Earth's rotation has slowed. This is why the research team believes we can expect more earthquakes in 2018, it is the last of a 5-year slowdown in Earth's rotation.


Note that the article does go on to say-

Currently, the data only notes a striking correlation, but no causation. Hence, scientists are still unsure whether this change in Earth's rotation is the cause of an uptick in earthquakes.

7.6 Quake in the Caribbean Sea northeast of Honduras.

There was a 7.2 precursor at 1.51am (UTC)

The hopefully main quake is listed as either 7.6 or 7.8 depending on source and happened at 2.51am (UTC)

No after shocks as yet.

So ... there could still be another larger one on it way. Let's hope not.

There was no precursor listed, on any EQ site. Where did you come up with this idea from, RSOE? If so, be aware they tend to list multiple instances of the same quake because they list multiple recording station sources & don't bother to say so. I.E, they make stuff seem more Armageddony than they are.

Nyiah, I think I was the one who taught you how rsoe works


The 7.2 is listed by INGV (Italy) and as I stated above, it was almost an hour before hand.

Perhaps INGV made a boo boo. Always possible.

Please don't blame the messenger, in this case RSOE.

A 4.3 hit near by but it well could be its own quake, caused by the 7.6.

Hey y'all... I have been so busy havent been on much myself. With that said hope Muzzy is doing well.

I do lurk every chance I get or on nights like tonight come to check out the chatter about quakes. Been a member to Quake Watch since 2011... the swarm in Kansas is what brought me to ATS... so thank you OP for keeping it going.

I'm surprised "they" admit a quake uptick is what we can look forward to in the coming year, so I am interested in reading that article, thanks for the info. I'm in need of some good reading and researching.


I like to go to Earthquake Report.com to check out the "I felt it reports". Lot's of people are reporting about what they felt with the recent 7.6 Honduras quake. earthquake-report.com...

Someone said something about an earlier quake..precursor possibly.. but I didn't see it reported on USGS, maybe I overlooked it. Can someone link me to it?

Also, seems like there isn't any aftershocks coming in like one would expect. The 4.5, but that's it.

What do y'all think??

MEXICO... CAYMAN ISLANDS... AND JAMAICA. * ACTUAL AMPLITUDES AT THE COAST MAY VARY FROM FORECAST AMPLITUDES DUE TO UNCERTAINTIES IN THE FORECAST AND LOCAL FEATURES. IN PARTICULAR MAXIMUM TSUNAMI AMPLITUDES ON ATOLLS OR SMALL ISLANDS AND AT LOCATIONS WITH FRINGING OR BARRIER REEFS WILL LIKELY BE MUCH SMALLER THAN THE FORECAST INDICATES. * FOR ALL OTHER AREAS COVERED BY THIS MESSAGE...

PROCEDURES AND THE LEVEL OF THREAT. * PERSONS LOCATED IN THREATENED COASTAL AREAS SHOULD STAY ALERT FOR INFORMATION AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FROM NATIONAL AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES. ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL -------------------------- * ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL -ETA- OF THE INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE FOR PLACES WITHIN THREATENED REGIONS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

ETA..Again...

2 more aftershocks.. 4.5 and 4.6

That was a pretty shallow quake too. I wonder why people will sometimes state they felt two shakes with one big quake? Makes me think it was two back to back.

Yes! The aspect though is that this is a global watch and not just a one-off dismal.

This is not my thread. This is ATS’ thread and a testament for Muzzy.

The report was auto generated by RSOE from INGV (Italy).

It may be that Italy's clocks are slow or someone over there stuffed up the times. It was reported as exactly an hour before hand so Italy (INGV) made a mistake it seems.

Do not like the looks of those. 3 quakes, all about the same size, all within about 90 minutes of each other. Hope it isn't announcing the coming of something else.
