Let's play a guessing game - What is really, really wrong with the below list?:

Update time = Mon May 10 20:48:00 UTC 2010

MAP 5.1 2010/05/10 13:05:25 -12.095 166.207 46.7 SANTA CRUZ ISLANDS
MAP 5.1 2010/05/09 18:44:51 -55.852 -27.372 35.0 SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS REGION
MAP 5.0 2010/05/09 10:45:00 -37.439 -73.543 35.0 BIO-BIO, CHILE
MAP 7.2 2010/05/09 05:59:43 3.775 96.055 45.0 NORTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA

I am truly wondering what is going on in the "experts" minds over this!!
Myself - I am very unsettled! Does anyone out there have a link for me on the tremor and strains for Sumatra???

I don't know dude, what is wrong with that list?

That would be Dudette. You are kidding me right?? 7.2 - no noticable aftershocks - 30 +/- hours - highly unusual.

posted on May, 10 2010 @ 06:05 PM
oh yes, sorry it's just because of the other earthquakes you posted i got confused.

Yeh that's quite worrying, the fact that there's been no immediate aftershocks, looks like a forshock for something larger, but who knows : / ?

"Mainshocks always have aftershocks that follow."

USGS Kid's ^^

somewhat worrying..

2010 earthquakes about 30% above normal!

Northern Sumatra I'm concerned about because that's right where Mount Toba is. If that thing blows, we are looking into a very very long winter.

I wanted to look up the last 7.2 on 2010/05/09 NORTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA to see what the aftershocks looked like, but I don't know how to call that info up. How can I query USGS to get a list of aftershocks?

Story on that 2008 earthquake here, from Reuters....

JAKARTA, Feb 25 (Reuters) - A powerful earthquake struck west of Indonesia's Sumatra island on Monday, triggering panic and a brief tsunami warning, although there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake, which was felt in neighboring Singapore, had a magnitude of 7.3 and was at a depth of 35 km (21.75 miles).

Indonesia's meteorology agency, which lifted a tsunami warning after about 45 minutes, put the quake at a shallower depth of 10 km (6 miles).

"There are no reports of damages or casualties yet. When the quake happened, people stormed out of the police station. We still need to check with the police station on Muko-Muko (nearest to the epicenter) whether there has been any damage," Hassanudin, a police officer in Bengkulu town, told Reuters.

"People panicked, but there was no big movement towards higher ground, although there was a tsunami warning."

The epicenter of the quake was about 300 km (185 miles) northwest of Bengkulu and around 160 km (100 miles) southwest of Padang.

Two strong aftershocks hit the same area hours later, the first measuring 6.7 and the second 6.9, the USGS said. The first aftershock struck 164 km (102 miles) southwest of Padang and was only 35 km (21.7 miles) deep, while the second was 19.9 miles (32 km), deep centered 107 miles (172 km) southwest of Padang.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which monitors the world for tsunamis, said there was no threat of a widespread destructive tsunami form the aftershocks, but added there was a small possibility of a local tsunami.

In Padang, patients were evacuated from hospital buildings for safety despite heavy rain, after the first quake.

Supposedly according to scientific data, in Sumatran Quakes Historically, almost zero aftershocks occur if the quake is 50 km or deeper. Hope that helps....

I don't do predictions but my Puerto Rico bell is ringing on USGS and I believe there'll be a big one in next few hours... south Cali / Peru coast area probably.

what do you mean by Puerto Rico bell ?

reply to post by Mad dog

It seems, at least to me, that when Puerto Rico quakes appear, and appear in pairs or a series of a few over a couple of hours, that a big quake is on the horizon. It's just one of the patterns I "think" I see - thought I'd put it out there this time just in case - always more effective than after the event

I'll probably just make a total noob of myself

I assumed they were left overs from the Haiti Quake.
