Iris is quiet for the first time I've seen since the Dec quake in N Sumatra.

Are we back to normal, or is this the proverbial calm before the storm?

Indonesia stopped have daily 5.0s after the latest great earthquake, is it possible that the particular shake pattern has..dried up, for lack of a better phrase.

It's quiet least in terms of large earthquakes...

All is not quiet, just check out, there is still activity going on. Iris is only one source, and it seems that they don't pick up half the activity emsc picks up and vice versa.

for some odd reason neither link will work for me right now -- anyone else having a problem with it? I had them up earlier today but now I'm getting specified server can't be found.

Ja...ees not working for me neither. I wish it was, because I'm not believing the silence on IRIS myself.

It's down for me as well. I wonder if there's something going on? It was really quiet earlier...


If anybody has an alternative to the two sites mentioned (both of which I have bookmarked) post it here, let's see if someone else is reporting something.

Edit: I can get there from my bookmark, and it reloads but doesn't change. I don't know if they killed the link only? Wierd. Anybody know what's up?

What time is 20:40 UTC compared to say GMT it seems to be stuck at that time but since I am not sure what the time difference would be for that I'm not totally sure. Is that what you see also -- that is from my bookmarks also.

Yup, it's stuck for me too.

Interesting. Is it possible their update monkey called in sick?

The one I use is -

Also I don't think IRIS shows small quakes. Seems like they display only those over 4.0 or 4.5, can't remember which.

I think the planet is taking a breather, it was start again with another volley of quakes, patterns seem regular but some random one will spike soon, i have a gut feeling about it

both sites are working for me (right now). Iris only shows one today and emsc show 3(4). Funny thing on the emsc one you could take a ruler and make a straight line between the ones on continental Europe. Seems strange to me!

So much for the breather, at lest 5 quakes on the map today, including a 5.9 off the coast of Mexico:

That link aboaut, though, still doesn't work for me

valkeryie, does that lady ever stop falling down into the basement? I laugh but I can't help feel like that hurt.

Troy, don't know if she ever quits falling
But she sure has proof for her lawyers

Switzerland just had a 3.0, now how rare is that?

Hopefully it scared a few pounds off of her.

Laws of phsyics and gravity were not working in favor of her for sure. She probably caused IRIS to register a blip.

Try this site. Says Indoneisa still having 5.0 quakes

quiet? sort of, with the exception of a 6.2 in Sumatra yesterday, things seems to be slowing down, but with nature you can't predict anything and one big one can start the whole cycle again.

Maui stacey just posted the link, see above
