Wow. It's like some one is trying to bust there way up through the Earth's crust!!

I have never seen anything like that before

I found some news and posted an article, a tsuanmi warning was issued but the reports so far are citing only 2 quakes, they are further behind then Iam.

Here is 16:

5.2 2007/09/28 02:20:04 -21.352 169.472 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS

*a couple others 1 marianas and 1 solomons, last time solomons was listed it changed to the loyalty islands, I will keep an eye out on these two for possible changes.

Ya I seen your post. I hope nothing comes of it.

Would it hit the east coast of Australia I wonder? Thats a rather densely populated area.

It's confusing, that one report that I used said Update and included a tsunami warning, the others are saying there isn't a tsunami warning, and they are getting their info from USGS, I wonder if they even know what is happening at the moment.

While I would be a little peeved if this all turns out to be some equipment problem at USGS, it would explain this weird reporting and data.

man all these earthquakes recently got me on the edge of my seat over here in california.. seems like it's only a matter of time now

posted on Sep, 27 2007 @ 11:06 PM
It would but thats a pretty long time for their equipment to be malfunctioning and them not to notice or post something saying it's just a problem.

The Ring of Fire as its called. Nothing unusual at all here. Every now and then it flares up just like Sun Flares.

posted on Sep, 28 2007 @ 12:20 AM
It doesn't seem to be a normal series of quakes to me, they are all in very close proximity and the sustained intensities 4.9 - 6.6 for all 16 quakes seems odd to me.

Hopefully more information on this event will surface tomorrow.

It has quieted down, and I need some rest, I will check back in the morning to see if anything else happened.

"Hoary Cwap! It'z Godzilla!"

--I apologize for this flashback from the movies I loved so much as a kid.

Is it possibly an undersea volcano getting ready to erupt? I recall the increase in seismic activity before Mt. St. Helens blew her top. Perhaps there's an undersea "Mt. Etna" at this location and its simply getting ready to blow? The seismic activity around Mt. St. Helens before she blew was pretty localized as this activity seems to be.

Check out the "Weekly Summary" of activity prior to the large eruption on this page:

I don't think its a huge deal. Just more of the typical activity we could expect from the "Ring of Fire"!

PS--That link brought back a lot of memories for me. I lived in Spokane, WA when St. Helens erupted and watched a lot of the newscasts and seen the sky right after the big eruption. I miss old Harry Truman! Interesting reading and photos in itself!

This is the area, as seen in Google Earth,

There is a seamount to the West of this area, but I would think these would be closer if it were an eruption, unless it's a whole new one. Considering that some were reasonably deep, it could be that in the subduction zone the lower plate was caught on the upper one, and is pushing it downwards, and it has stopped doing that with these quakes. But thats just my speculation.

I wonder if this will ever show up on the mainstream media.

It has been picked up by AP.

Nice image Apex

Well, the activity has started again in the area close to the Loyalty Islands

6.0 2007/09/28 11:16:39 -21.519 169.217 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS
6.0 2007/09/28 11:12:41 -21.377 169.202 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS
5.2 2007/09/28 10:40:36 -21.498 169.277 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS
5.1 2007/09/28 10:12:18 -21.224 169.436 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS
5.4 2007/09/28 08:21:23 -21.377 169.457 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS
4.8 2007/09/28 04:43:18 -21.094 169.279 10.0 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS

That would be 22 total in less than 24 hrs.

Here is an updated capture of the map from USGS

Here's the Seismograms from the most recent two magnitude 6 quakes. Edit, seems to be the same one, but different times.

I really wonder about this, it was a really good find on this activity. It looks as if there is actual constant activity, the seismogram should fade to pretty much a thin line after each one, but it seems to be continuing after each one.

Thanks, I put that one in the quake watch 2007 thread because it was not in this immediate area, still checking to see if a tsunami alert will come from that Marianas quake.

Oops, sorry, missed that thread, just logged in this morning.

Saw your thread, checked the USGS site and this big red square jumped out at me...

Hope everybody's ok down in/by the Loyalty Islands..

Haven't had my coffee yet.

We see the zipper effect ... look for the ping pong. Cascadia?

Wow all that activity is amazing but frightening at the same time... I wonder, what is happening? and to the poster above me: What?

Clearly Abbadon has awoke and is rattling his chains. Soon he will break free and bathe us in his wrath. Judgement has come!

Or perhaps Atlas is shrugging.

Orrrrrr as the battle between monks and military rages the denizens of inner earth shake their collective fists in retribution. By Odin be purged!
