According to Iris since i got home from work this evening till now (6 hours have passed) there has been no activity on their website since then, which was the california quake.

I hope that their website has messed up but for me there is at least 2-3 big quakes reported on there daily, but for this lengthy time period, this is somewhat alarming.

Lets hope its a glitch

I hope it is a website issue as well! Try the USGS site.

Webbot predicted the Aug 3 flurry pretty well, and they also said "and" Aug 4.

Had me kinda worried there for a moment, As i had a dream that a large quake hit Russia,

Any hows on looking at the UsGS seems there have been a few today,

Relief to know, thanks, must be a glitch in the matrix on their website not reporting quakes

Just out of interest? are you not getting any new quakes from the iris website ?

posted on Aug, 4 2009 @ 06:44 PM
Iris for me also is not showing any updates, Odd stuff, But i sent in a report to them to make them aware if they where not already,

Can you imagine how eiry it would be if the quakes did stop though??

I noticed some small tremors in Barstow, Ca.

RSOE tremor detail.

2.1 @ 23:16:20 ; depth: 6.40 km
2.1 @ 23:23:04 ; depth: 10.10 km

Probably just nothing. Also noticed the one in Japan.

I just don't understand why there have been big quakes recently near water and they don't form any tsunamis.
You would think that a 6 point and over quake on the water would make a large tsuname.
New Zealand, Baja, Indonesia, Japan today....none made a tsunami.

Tsunamis form when large amounts of water are displaced.
Two requirements are needed for this:
- Epicenter occurring in deep seas
- Large earth movement during earthquake, which typically happens in thrust-type earthquakes in which one side of the fault is pushed upwards (because the other one goes under it). This happens on subduction zones in convergent tectonic plate boundaries.

Where the the Gulf of California lies, which is of shallow depth, The Pacific and the North American plates slide (grind) one against each other (transform-type plate boundary), therefore even during large earthquakes there won't be a large displacement of water.
