If these huge quakes continue "going north", they might wake up Toba!

There was a 6.6 just now. A different part of Indonesia, far away from the other quakes.


USGS: Magnitude 6.6 - KEPULAUAN TALAUD, INDONESIA
2007 September 13 09:48:45 UTC

Yep and a tsunami warning has now been issued for that one,

Lots of after shocks also, quakes

Hopefully not. If Danau Toba blows up, well, it won't be a Danau any more... (Danau means "serene lake")

Being that where I live is just east of that extinct(apparently) super-volcano, and the winds are blowing from that direction this time of the year... it would make the yearly haze from forest fires of Indonesia look like a little camp-fire smoke.

Seems they had a 7.8 this Thursday morming (13th)

I read some articles at iris that said the Scientist say when they come in clusters like this (large quakes) it may mean that the big one is coming because that shelf hasn't broken yet and they are waiting.

So this may be far from over.

I feel so bad for this region. They simply can't catch a break. I agree that this is far from over. This is very significant activity in the "Ring of Fire". Has there been any news on the volcanoes in the area?

The super volcano there is no joke and if it is disturbed it could effect the globe.

I know this has nothing to do with the big quakes in Indonesia but California has been having small quakes in the past week that aren't really being told of. Oakland 2.7 Coalinga 4.1 Then others at Riverside.

I know California is known for small quakes but I think we should keep a eye on this wile all this is going on.

I know of the super volcano at Yellowstone is there another?

Big time. The Toba volcano in Sumatra makes Yellowstone look like a kiddie pool.

Here is some reference.




Toba, Sumatra, Indonesia

Comparison of volumes produced by some of the greatest volcanic eruptions. The Young Toba Tuff has an estimated volume of 2,800 cubic kilometers (km) and was erupted about 74,000 years ago. The Huckleberry Ridge Tuff, erupted at Yellowstone 2.2 million years ago, has a volume of 2,500 cubic km. The Lava Creek Tuff, erupted at Yellowstone 600,000 years ago, has a volume of 1,000 cubic km. The May 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens produced 1 cubic km of ash. Not shown is the Fish Canyon Tuff of the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The Fish Canyon Tuff was erupted 27.8 million years ago and has an estimated volume of 3,000 cubic km.


The eruption 75,000 years ago was thought to alter the world in vast ways, cutting down the world population but up to 70% or so.

Needless to say, we need to keep our eyes open for new details on this.

Here is an article from Australia which mentions Indonesia's increased monitoring of volcanic activity after the series of quakes in the past couple of days:


LINK

Authorities are keeping a close watch on Indonesia's fiery volcanoes as aftershocks continue to rattle the nation following Wednesday's powerful earthquake.

Buildings collapsed and dozens of homes were flattened after the 8.4 magnitude tremor and a string of strong aftershocks struck in the ocean off Sumatra island, sparking widespread panic and triggering tsunami warnings, all the way from north Australia to Mozambique.

A 4th (6.2) has struck.

www.cnn.com...

The speculation continues as to which are aftershocks just on a grand scare. Prayers to everyone in the affected areas.

So that's two on the western side of the Sunda Shelf and two on the eastern side.

Interesting. It's like the shelf is being peeled back.

What's scary is on the site you read something big going to happen on the 14th. I know they were talking about something different be stranger things have happened.

If with all the Elf, Haarp and that stuff maybe they could trigger something and this would be worst then Nuclear.

Just a thought

Ok, It's time for me to wake up.. I've been lurking a few days and getting a feel for the site.

I'm just curious, for someone with more bible knowledge than myself. Many people believe that we are on the verge of Armegeddon, the "end times", the second coming or whatever you choose to call it. Is there anything about that region of the world that plays into scripture? Especially in the book of revelations or other end times prophecy? This is one subject that has always interested me and I wonder if there is any significance between 3 major earthquakes in I think 24 or so hours and prophecy.

Also is there anyone up on other prophecy, (be it Nostradamus to Sylvia Browne) who can cite credible predictions they have made regarding earthquakes or whatever in that region around this time. It seems to be a big enough event that if someone is going to predict "earth shattering" (No pun intended) events, this would certainly be one.

Thanks

We deal with volcanic ash in the indonesia area as we forecast for pilots. Toba has no warnings on it yet but there are a few that have visble plumes. I would be watching Semeru and Krakatau. Krakatau actually has had seismic activity lately. We are monitoring it so will continue letting everyone know if there is any more tsunami warnings as soon as we send one out

Hi OzWeatherman....Just catching up on this thread. Where are you located? Are you working for USGS? I live in Palmer, Alaska right down the road from the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center...Just curious...

I live in Darwin at the top of Australia. I work for the Bureau of Meteorology here. We are responisble for issuing Tsunami warnings and warnings for volcanic activity (if it affects aviation) in the North Australia/ Indonesia area. So that means i will probably be first to know if anything happens :-), thats if Im rostered on (ah, the life of a shiftworker)

Shift work stinks...I feel for ya.
So, what do you make of all these quakes? Think the really big one is coming? I have been having the jitters lately here. We have had no real big ones in quite awhile...getting a little worried...

I know the Ring of Fire has constant earthquakes I check iris everyday. I'm glad the two of you are here you can kind of tell us things we don't know/understand.

I sure hope it is over and not the beginning.

Im not sure whats happening. This region is a very volatile area and quakes and volcanoes are quite a regular occurence. All I know is that the activity has been quite frequent over the past few days so maybe it is a sign of things to come, although im not a geologist or earthquake specialist. If we get any tremors here I will let you know to coz that usually means a large earthquake has happened near indonesia somewhere.
