**Edit in one I missed...
Magnitude 5.0 SAMAR, PHILIPPINES
Sunday, April 20, 2008 at 05:25:37 UTC
35 km (21.7 miles)

(So many on the map [335] I thought it was an old one)

Excellent rundown, helio and I do kind of see what you are pointing to

Doesn't look like much recently all too big, but there is another odd one... odd like the one in IL in respect to it being in a normally quiet location...

Magnitude 5.2 DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO
Sunday, April 20, 2008 at 07:30:44 UTC
10 km (6.2 miles)




**Edit in 2 more I missed...
Magnitude 5.6 KEPULAUAN BARAT DAYA, INDONESIA
Sunday, April 20, 2008 at 13:01:21 UTC
7.9 km (4.9 miles)


Magnitude 4.9 KAZAKHSTAN-XINJIANG BORDER REGION
Sunday, April 20, 2008 at 13:14:48 UTC
24.8 km (15.4 miles)


And there seems to be action picking up again in that stretch up in Alaska, with alot of ones around 3.0.

A word of caution, the USA number is the highest I can remember seeing on there, at 958. most are small, but remember the worldwide map shows any USA quake above 2.5, so that can rather increase the number seen.

Whether the increase is real, or a reflection of improved detection equipment (hey, in statistics you need a null hypothesis), is anyone's guess, though likely a larger number.

I grew up in Maine and just noticed that Maine had 2 earth quakes in the past week. This isnt normal for Maine. But after looking at the map I realized it was close to small mountains. We use to hike those mountains years ago. Can all of these new earth quakes that are not on fault lines maybe be new volcanoes? There also was another small one on the Tenn. and NC border. Close to more mountains. But not on a fault line.

i posted this previously. if you follow this link, it will give you real time global alerts from biological, to volcanic to earthquakes.

I see tunin reported a quake in a new thread so I sent him the info, coded to post here, so I will make note of it as a 5.2 off the East coast of S. America @ 00:00:48 UTC

But I post here now because this one just occurred... I will not link it, as it will most likely need updated. Please feel free to beat me to it.

Magnitude 5.2
OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 01:27:16 UTC
45 km (28.0 miles)


But... mussel's map shows a volcanic eruption ocurring over there.



And holy crapola! Quake count approaching 350


And a 3.2 in Central CA 5.6 km (3.5 miles)

there seems to be quite a number of events happening on the alert map. when you pull that link up, click on the event icon and it will bring you to event description and other valuable information such as "update" information.

Musselwhite,

Normally that map will allow you to click on the effected area and get details of the event, but that feature doesn't seem to be working today.

I will check again later.

Magnitude 5.3 CERAM SEA, INDONESIA
Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 14:05:47 UTC
Depth 38.9 km (24.2 miles)


Magnitude 5.0 TAIWAN REGION
Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 18:28:42 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)


Magnitude 5.5 VANUATU
Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 01:19:11 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)


Edit in the 5.5 and downgrade with the 2nd listed -- and ditto to the next post.

Also to note: The weekly quake count total on map is down to 240. I suspect this massive drop was due to the earthquke 'swarms' off Oregon coast and in Alaska being beyond 7 days now.

I am by no means a geologist. However I find this thread rather intriguing.


I realize that earthquakes happen all the time. What i am trying to inquire about is, how "Rare" are all these earthquakes? I mean everyyear dont they spring about all over the place? or in recent years, has it sky rocketed up?


My other question is, how can we compare this data we have now, with all of our new "technology" to that of say, 20 years ago? i have to use logic to think with time, maybe we are just able to detect them better. and really its not something "Odd".



But needless to say i am open minded on the subject, and would like to know if someone could please provide some information regarding my questions. I do agree that something is "Not right" about the situation, but im trying to get a firmer grasp on the whole concept in genral.


With due respect,
Hakii

hey, interestedalways, they were working at my last post. also, www.globalincidentmap.com... is a link provided by Crakeur, Super Mod, in this thread www.abovetopsecret.com... this map shows a global display of terrioristic and other suspicious events.

please note; however, when you pull the visz.rsoe.hu... up take note the latitude line in which numerous volcanic and especially earthquake activity occuring on the same latitude line.

the day the quakes happened up north there were at least a dozen such quakes happening on what appeared to be the same latitude line.

i am unable to get this across as i think it is significant.

Something's definitely not right



1052 quakes in the last week on the USA map? Will it ever stop rising? That number is so high.

Thankfully, Long Valley and Yellowstone are quiet.

Actually, it's funny you mention about over 1,000 being a large number of quakes. I spent a great deal of time last year regularly checking the map showing the quakes throughout the world as well as the one just showing quakes in the US. At some point (I don't remember when) there were over a thousand and I thought "this has to be unusual or, at least, way more than normal". Truth is that in the short period I monitored these maps I became greatly accustomed to their fluctuation and actually reached a point where very little, if anything, surprises me anymore.

I guess the answer is that over 1,000 quakes probably is a very large number but is also part of the "pattern" of quakes. I remember reading somewhere once that swarms of quakes are actually fairly common and that quakes themselves are cyclical just as most things in life tend to be. This means there will be periods of very limited quake activity and then periods of increased activity.

Of course, at some point, greater quake activity, particularly in certain regions such as the recent Oregon swarm, will be a precursor, lead to the fact that, or simply mean that something bigger is/has/or is about to occur. The trick, naturally, is when.

Personally I can't remember seeing it over 1000, but still, it's fairly rare for it to be that high. I notice fluctuations as well, but again so high just struck me as unusual.

I appreciated that input, trek, as I am novice. Thanks for taking the time.
Now for todays 2nd big(ish) rumble...

Magnitude 5.6 CENTRAL MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE

Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)


Sorry apex... I just have all this damn free time!
Tell me to go 'you know where' if you want to take over this thing again

By all means continue, you're giving me ATS points. Plus I was getting bored of only me doing it, felt like no one actually cared about it.

And I prefer doing bigger ones anyway, and all input is good.

We just had four quakes in the past ten minutes here in Reno, NV. A 3.8, followed by a 4.2 within five minutes and a couple smaller ones. I lived in San Jose, CA during the 7.2 Loma Prieta quake. Today's felt a lot stronger than 4.2 and 3.8 to me, but then we're sitting right on this particular fault.

I'm in Reno as well.
I felt 2 of the four quakes today.

But I wanted to state something else for the record.
I have 2 cats, and 2 dogs.

One of my cats has not been seen for about 36 hours..He's a homebody.
And rarely leaves the yard
The other cat will not leave my side. As a matter of fact, he is the reason I had to edit this post. He's standing on my keyboard grabbing my hands..

The dogs just want in and out, in and out every 5 minutes. Barking at nothing.
I suspect. we are due for a few more bumps.

I hope my cat returns soon!
