6.2 2009/03/12 23:23:35 5.628 -82.776 10.0 SOUTH OF PANAMA


A bit unusual for a 6.2 magnitude earthquake to appear there!
(Note: I'm not saying that it's not normal or that it's not supposed to happen)

I am soo pleased it was not under a city, or shallower that's a BIG one to say the least.

Its not huge but a 3.1 within 10 miles of Mt St. Helen's in Washington makes me nervous cause of all the stuff going on lately. I'm about 30-40 miles from it.

It is not at all unusual. It is a very active seismic area.

Of interest for all below on the BBC i Player site there is a Horizon program all about Earthquakes and why we cant predict them, using USGS and also the Sichquan event and Parkridge etc.

A very very interesting and well made Documentary for anyone interested in Quakes, includes a guy in china who is using snakes that "repeatedly hit themselves against the wall of the enclosure until dead" if a big one is close and about to happen.



Last century, earthquakes killed over one million, and it is predicted that this century might see ten times as many deaths. Yet when an earthquake strikes, it always takes people by surprise.

So why hasn't science worked out how to predict when and where the next big quake is going to happen? This is the story of the men and women who chase earthquakes and try to understand this mysterious force of nature.

Journeying to China's Sichuan Province, which still lies devastated by the earthquake that struck in May 2008, as well as the notorious San Andreas Fault in California, Horizon asks why science has so far fallen short of answering this fundamental question.


It is available to view for free until 9:59pm Tuesday 21st April 2009

There has been an issued statement from an online quake predition service, that the Los Angeles area has a 95% chance of a 4.8-6.3 magnitude earthquake from April 4th-9th. He uses words such as "likely" and "imminent". I am going to follow this closely. I have used his services before, and have been nearly spot on, but this could be most testing of the services he provides. I live in Southern California, and yes, we are indeed overdue for a large 6.0+ earthquake. Last one hit in 1994 and 15 years is a bit long to be waiting for the next one. I fear that if his prediction is correct, then it may be a bit larger then 6.0. Only time will tell I suppose.
