I read in this months spirit and destiny mag that Michele Knight predicts 3 major earth quakes this year, one being in America.

Of coursr it doesn't mean it is a fact it is a bit vauge really no mention of location. It will be interesting to see if she is right or wrong as the case may be!

This is a good thread

That´s close, isn´t it?

ABC Asia Pacific - News - Strong quake hits Vanuatu

Geoscience Australia says it is not expected to generate a destructive tsunami or cause other major damage.

The quake struck about 100 kilometres north of the capital, Port Vila.

Strong earthquake occurred at 20:50:47 (UTC) on Monday, January 23, 2006.

Magnitude 6.0 - located in NEAR THE WEST COAST OF COLOMBIA



Location 6.842°N, 77.792°W
Depth 26.2 km (16.3 miles)

Distances
175 km (110 miles) SSE of La Palma, Panama
180 km (110 miles) NW of Quibdo, Colombia

That was a strong one. Even though it has not been exactly on earth, I am sure they felt it and scared to death. I hope no tsunami is generated.

Even though there is no tsunami warning for the Pacific Coast (with regard to the Vanuatu quake), earthquakes of such a magnitude are able to generate local tsunamis within the coasts 100 km. from the centre.

I hope nothing happens in Colombia and close to Vanuatu.
We´ll keep a close eye to it.

Though some of these are microquakes, most of the activity seems meaningful to me. No idea what you think about it, but too many tectonic plates are moving and generating seismic activity.

www.abc.net.au...
Residents in the Eyre Peninsula town of Yeelanna had a rude awakening last night when a series of earthquakes shook the town.
The quakes took place between 10:20pm yesterday and 1:00am today, with the largest measuring 3.7 on the richter scale.
Primary Industries and Resources seismologist David Love says while the earthquakes were not big by international standards, they could have been felt up to 80 kilometres away.
He says residents can expect more aftershocks to follow.


Unusual area for quakes. One to watch as I have noticed when Australia has quakes there can be a big quake somewhere else shortly after

Magnitude 7.5!!!

I hope this doesn't cause another horrible Tsunami. As if those poor people haven't been through enough.
