They are nowing saying it was a 6.0 in the Gulf of Mexico. How would you find out about Tsunami warnings for the coast line?

I think you generally need around an 8 magnitude to cause a tsunami.

I don't think I ever heard of one, and I used to live in Florida.

I think you can get a small sized earthquake to generate a tsunami, as long as it displaces enough water, ie it moves the ocean floor up or down.

There is a page on USGS that shows historical earthquakes in this region, 1990 onwards;

neic.usgs.gov...

there are a few other quakes, all quite small, at a shallow depth.

Looks like there might be a good probability of quakes occurring at the following locations over the next day:

Just off the coast of Crescent City, CA - mag 4.8 to 8.3
Near Unalaska - mag 4.0 to 7.0
Solomon Islands - mag 5.2 to 9.0
Philippine Islands - mag 4.9 to 7.9
East of Fiji - mag 4.1 to 8.5
Just of the western coast of Guatemala - mag 4.7 to 8.1
Indonesia - mag 4.9 to 9.4
Mediterranean Sea - mag 4.5 to 7.7
West coast of Argentina - mag 3.9 to 6.8

Yeah, I know, that's every where. Just wanted to give a .s up as far as the historical data shows with this Gulf quake.

Valhall, I agree with you warning. Glad you covered most the the planet as I would have. php

Rare


Only one earthquake has caused notable damage in Florida. In January 1879, St. Augustine residents reported heavy shaking that knocked plaster off the walls.


But wait... I never heard of this



Sunday's temblor was a rare "midplate" earthquake where pent up energy from faraway plate collisions is released in random spots. There is no way to tell where the earthquake will strike. Scientists are intrigued by Sunday's temblor because the USGS recorded a magnitude 5.2 earthquake in the same spot on Feb. 10.


Oh, and about a Tsunami...


The earthquake was not powerful enough to trigger a tsunami. But Park said that doesn't mean Gulf Coast residents can ignore the threat.

"If there were a massive magnitude 7.0 earthquake, I'd advise people to get off the beach," Park said. "You'd probably still be safe in Disney World."


Honest to god, I really thought Florida was the one place you would never have an earthquake. It's just a giant sandbar. However, I am more disturbed at this "midplate" revelation. Sounds like no where is safe.

How odd. I have a post missing in this thread. I responded to R's post stating there had been a quake in almost the same location in 2003, but it's not here now.

That is odd, especially since there was no mention in the Florida article about it and I was looking forward to a response from you about all this.

Well, here's the one from 2003 after the Gulf quake.

and here's that one

I'd call that a pattern repeated.
