Historical map of the same area.

This might help to bring this into perspective. It shows how common these quakes are.

southern alaska has had an earthquake 2.5. This can't be normal.

I will wait for update. I hope the ground is not being moved by ELF microwaves from the HAARP or some other means. I do know that the earth is constantly on the move naturally in Calif. over an active fault. Maybe a fault has become active. Is there any other source to verify this data against. Are you in a position to see a history of the data, to compare the rarity of the phenom.

Okay I stand corrected twice...LOL - there is also this site: EarthquakesCanada.

It even offers a visual of actual seismograph recordings.

The VDB seismograph is located actually just down the road from me
Nice to know.

The line shows a great deal of wind noise, with a few blips as we have some pile driving going on in this area what with a loverly new rapid transit system being added.

Cheers.

And in looking at the histories of EQs in this area, clusters of quakes are common as was pointed out.

Still it is a bit frightening to see so much activity going on as of late. Hard not to get a bit doom and gloom...

LMAO my poor kid just got a pop quiz on our disaster prep plan and where to meet atc atc...poor child just kept rolling her eyes and saying, "Mom take a pill...OMG"

Ahhh youth...

That's quite impressing I have to say and it sure put things more in perspective seeing this history.

But also the big question is, are they building up towards something bigger like 7 or 8. Wonder how it went the last time when you had an 8.0. Were there also smaller ones before or did it just apear?

Hi y'all,

I've been following this thread and watching things unfold. Although, there is normally a high number of earthquakes here, I think they are a bit stronger than normal.

The AP and local press has picked up on this...

ktva.com...

Large quakes rock Aleutian Islands
Associated Press

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says a series of strong earthquakes shook the Aleutian Islands Tuesday night. They all occurred in the Rat Islands region and no damage was reported.
The first temblor was a magnitude 6.3 that hit at 8:18 p.m. That was followed in the next hour by aftershocks reaching magnitudes of 4.3, 6.1and 4.5.

Thanks for a nice discussion with broad perspective!

I counted 130 quakes since yesterday in Alaska!

Pretty impressive i have to say.

I don't know if other seismic agencies have similar programs but, CNDC has something called an Automatic Data Request Manager - you can choose your station (seismograph) and make a request for up to the hour info.

Edit: not emailed - you access via FTP...I'll post the link to the ftp when I find it unless someone beats me to it


Now how cool is that???

Here's the link: CNDC AutoDRM

It is a good thread huh? Takes some of the fear out of it being able to research it in more depth and see a wide variety of data, both current and historical.

See my post top of this page. That has the info you want. Nothing unusual about this. Aftershocks can go on for months or years.

Just thought i'd share a couple of address to back up my earlier post. The first one is about an Alaskan quake affecting the geysers at Yellowstone.

www.signonsandiego.com/news/science/20040528-1449-science-geysers.html

the second is about the current activity at Yellowstone.

www.billingsgazette.net...

Sorry folks, but I still believe the eq's and Yellowstone are connected

But can they also be foreshocks of a bigger one, how do you know they are aftershockes?

I know that the link you gave showed that there is always a lot of activity, but as far as I can see i do not happen that much that you have so many in this time of periode, two days already. That is what i can at least find when i look through the history of USGS.

You know it happened once in China that they were able to predict a mayor earthquake. Days before the big one, there was extreme much smaller (foreshocks) activity and unusualy animal behavior and it suddenly stopped and the big one came. They managed to evacuate like 90.000 people just a few hours before. Unfortunatly this happened only once and the other times they didn't predict it correctly.

Im not saying that this will happen in Alaska too ofcourse, but it could be possible.

Ptolomeo - It's actually pretty sunny now so there's a great chance we'll be able to see it here.


Another funny thing I've noticed about the sun over the past months is that it has been unusually bright outside. Another friend I know told me the same thing just out of the blue and said it looked to be whiter and brighter. Has anyone else noticed this?

On another note...I just checked out FEMA Emergency Managers site to see what they had to say about the quakes and found this for today:

National Situation Update: Thursday, June 15, 2006


Earthquake Activity
During the past 24 hours approximately 90 (ninety) low-to-moderate earthquakes have been reported in the vicinity of the Rat Islands, Aleutian Islands, Alaska. The quakes have mainly measured in the 2.5 to 4.5 range. There have been no reports of injuries, damages, or tsunamis. (Source: United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program, Pacific Tsunami Warning Center West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center)


Everyone please check out the footage on the front page of our local news about the quakes here in Cali:
KRON 4
KTVU 2

What gets me is why haven't they reported about the ones in Alaska? Isn't there some kind of connection?



God Bless

DearWife...

Something important about the Sun. Can't remember...just a second...sunspot activity...we are coming into an intense cycle of sunspot activity...

Magnetic field bottles in Sun's upper "atmosphere" from sunspots, increased fusion activity in chronosphere, more ionized particles in solar wind hitting earth's magnetopause(sphere?)equals no direct effect on tectonic movement, but...what about weather? a third of Chandler's Wobble is accounted for by weather. Significant slippage of crust is bound to loosen plates, the more unstable ones first. Check Chandler's Wobble and any correlations between sunspot activity and weather patterns.

Go go gadget Google!

Hmm...thanks Matyas for the info. I'll be sure to read up on Chandler's Wobble.

You also just reminded me of what happened several weeks or so ago about some houses slipping from a hillside:
Houses falling prey to unexplained slide

There's footage with this but I can't seem to find it at the moment. I went on Google Earth to see where these homes were located and to my surprise they were near a creek I used to hang out at with friends when I was younger. I zoomed out little by little and took some screen shots, and I came to the conclusion that it could possibly be the reservoir near the homes or it could be do to some slippage from the Hayward fault. Several days later, the news station reported those very same factors.

...just found this:
Earthquake Activity Increases In Alaska, California


Alaska and California normally experience many minor earthquakes, but activity for the past few days has been running higher than normal. Geologists are not certain what the higher numbers of small quakes mean, but they continue to closely monitor the situation.
