You should keep an Eye on it, You will see this is an everyday event. Alaska has quakes each and everyday.

@SpittinCobra - I've gone back 6 months and there hasn't been more than 7 for this same area in a 24 hour period. So I would say that over 40 in 7 hours is alot!

but that is just my opinion of course.

We are keeping a watch on this though... cuz it does seem like quite alot for one area in so little time. Maybe morning news will shed some light on it for us. probably not, but we can hope.

45 in 8 hours though?

I have also come up with this

Russia has some active volcano's as well but they are just as far as the two active in Alaska. The three active russian volcano's to the west of these quakes are

Karymsky: ORANGE
Bezymianny: YELLOW
Sheveluch: YELLOW

Seems these quakes are right in the middle of the active russian and alaskan volcanos.

www.avo.alaska.edu... Heres a good pic. All these quakes are happening right in the middle of the active volcanos you see in this pic.

When I first started I kept a eye on the quake map all day long, I was so paranoid. Alaska and California or off the hook there are SO many quakes a years it is unreal.

They are happening all along this fault.

I'm not going to argue the point, just watch it and you will see, will a big earthquake happen? Yes, we are do, will you or I know its coming? Most likely no, even if you watch.

I don't think anything is unusual of this, it's not uncommon to get a series earthquakes like this esp around a fault. In fact having a series of earthquakes just like this would actually make it less likely for one sudden large earthquake to occur. But it's interesting nonetheless

DK1 the picture you showed me is the ring of fire,

Volcanic arcs and oceanic trenches partly encircling the Pacific Basin form the so-called Ring of Fire, a zone of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The trenches are shown in blue-green. The volcanic island arcs, although not labelled, are parallel to, and always landward of, the trenches. For example, the island arc associated with the Aleutian Trench is represented by the long chain of volcanoes that make up the Aleutian Islands.

Gonna say that one of the volcanoes is coming to life.
There seem to be three listed as active on that island.

I have the news channels on my TV's they have not said anything. I do know that Earth quakes happen on a non stop basis all around the world most are small. If it was big news it would have been on TV by now.

Isn't H.A.A.R.P located in Alaska ?

Could the sudden and current activity be some type of testing for the likely event of Iranian/Russian/U.S conflict?

Just throwing in the "what if" factor

before everyone screams " the sky is falling " -- please read the disclaimers for EQ reporting sites

the peliminary plots are all generated AUTOMATICALLY from different sensors on different net works

and compiled as raw data -- thats all you are seeing .

50 lines of data RARELY = 50 individual EQs , different sensors around the world often give multiple reports of the same event -- this is a fact of life -- the more sensors pick up an event , the more accurate the final data will be

once all the traces are reviiewed by profesional sisemologists , they will delete the ones which are multiple reports of the same event . and that is the caveat , the RAW data was never designed to be used as " fact " by the public --

there is no conspiracy , no " haarp death ray "

just sit tight , and check the data for 14th june in 2 days time -- it will have been cleaned up -- and IMHO only 10 to 13 EQs will remain on the list

the rest having been discareded as ghosts of previous data

here is a question:

If its not an error in the logs,
Why would over 50 earthquakes happen on the SAME island in just 10 hours? On one single island? what could that mean? We have an island dancing somewhere between Russia and Alaska

What the heck is going on? Is this normal?

Don't you think it would've been good to check if its normal before presenting it?

There are lots of earthquakes every single day. The aluetians are part of an active region.


I think something big might be happening.

Why?

Here is some information on alaskan tectonics:

www.gi.alaska.edu...
When the northwestward migrating Pacific "plate," as it is called, reaches the Aleutian Trench, it is absorbed back into the earth. This downwelling process is what produces the earth's oceanic trenches in the first place[...]Although it is not well publicized, primarily because the population density of the state is so low, Alaska produces approximately twice the number of earthquakes than all the other states combined. Nearly all of these are directly or indirectly related to the state being rammed from the south by the marauding Pacific plate.


Deny Ignorance, through Tectonophysics.

That was supposed to be the original ATS motto, but it didn't fit onto a card nicely.

I've been watching this from the UK. Not sure what is happening but I do know that this is not a normal event.

Historically, this part of Alaska has not seen this many tremors in such succession for a large number of years. This may very well be a very significant occurrence of seismic activity; certainly since the 2002 quake.

The events have not yet hit the news anywhere as far as I know.
