At least 2,021 people were killed and thousands injured when a strong earthquake rocked Indonesia's densely-populated island of Java on Saturday, the social affairs ministry said.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's government quickly declared an emergency status in the quake-hit areas as reports said more than 1,000 people were injured in the temblor.

Counted 18 quakes today over magnitude 4 in the ring of fire. I almost think another big one is on the way. And I mean over 6.5, maybe higher soon.

they said on the news that the sharks were badly decomposed, which if im not mistaken can happen if exposed or killed by gas? well a certain type of gas, methane? i dunno but they do seem linked an other geologists have made claims although they tend to make verbal claims not written ones.

we will see..... im sure we will see alot before the pole shift lol...(half serious look)

Whole darn ring has gone "active"... the Aleutians, Russia... the whole area is "hot".
The USGS site is slowing down... traffic. Let's hope for no more injury and loss of life. Little island nation Tonga, any word from the island? Did the 6.7 whack them bad? They are hours and hours from anywhere by plane, by ship?

No reports of injuries or damage in the Tonga quake.

source


magnitude-6.7 earthquake has struck near the Pacific island of Tonga, the US Geological survey said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries

There was no risk of a Pacific-wide tsunami associated with the earthquake, said Barry Hirshorn, a geophysicist at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre at Ewa Beach, Hawaii.

When there's an earthquake in the sea is it normal that there will be a tsunami's after? how does that work?

Yes a tsunami is caused by an earth quake in the sea,


this lil bit of info should answer your question,




What is a tsunami?

A tsunami is a series of enormous waves formed in the sea or near the coast and is generated by violent undersea disturbances such as earthquake- induced movement of the ocean floor, landslides and underwater volcanic eruptions. Most tsunamis are caused by earthquakes in the sea that induce movements in the sea floor. From the area where the tsunami originates, waves travel outwards in all directions and can travel great distances. In deep water the tsunami wave is not noticeable, but when it approaches the shore it increases in height. All tsunami are potentially dangerous and can be extremely violent and damaging when they hit the shore.

Thanks for the info...... but alot of earthquakes happen in the sea but alot of times i read that there are no warnings of a tsunami. Or can a tsunami only occur from a certain magnitude. So from which magnitude there will be a real danger for tsunamis?

For a Tsunami to be triggered the ocean floor must be displaced with enough vigor to start the wave dynamic. Deep quakes don't often (but can) produce this as the depth allows for a dampening effect before any surface (ocean floor) displacement. Shallow quakes don't require the same magntitude to do the same. The USGS has some more detailed stuff on the dynamics of quake depth, magnitude and Tsunami likelihood. A bit complicated really. Underwater landslides? Huge Tsunami danger from that.

Has anyone run the daily averages of quake magnitudes... they seem to be "edging-up" over the last sevral months... I hope the peak is passed and the "ring" geologically "relaxes".

New here...... Looks like I will be watching this all unfold with you folks here.

I can not believe it when I look at the rim of fire.

In my humble opinion, I truly believe we are in for a significant one on our side of the rim very soon.

If I was to make a prediction......... well why not.......... I give it less than two weeks.

A little off topic, but was thinking about moving back up twards the Pacific Northwest first part July. Not absolutely sure about how safe it is where I am at, but have decided to hang tight for now.

I am honestly quite alarmed presently.
