The only good feeling you get from an earthquake is after it is over and discover it was a small one and caused no injuries or damage.

This is turning into a nice little series ( on the Pahiatua Fault), not sure if its technically a "Swarm", as there is one main event bigger than all the others. This looks more like what you get after a Mag 5.
Heres the latest new ones there;
REF, LAT, LONG, UTC TIME, DEPTH, MAG
3336517, -40.37905, 175.92368, 2010/7/9 4:26:52.5, 27, 2.286
3336644, -40.44282, 175.96669, 2010/7/9 9:34:11.9, 31, 2.94
3336749, -40.40214, 175.92436, 2010/7/9 14:10:32.8, 24, 2.562


updated map of the main event and "aftershocks"

Even the last event there is over 24 hrs ago, things take a while on the weekend at GNS
, should have some more at the end of today. I should have taken a screenshot of the Seismograph at Mangatainoka River (MRZ) yesterday, too late now, but I took one this morning, it will be interesting to see how many of these are in this area. This seismometer is within 5km of the centre of these quakes, so most of these on the screenshot should be local.

mangatainoka seismo 6:30am this morning

BTW this "series" of quakes is about 4km NE of the Tui Brewery at Mangatainoka, so lets hope things don't get worse, don't want to see any beer spilled and wasted

did anybody feel a quake or two yesterday in so cal? i'm curious because i most definitely felt one or two and they went for quite a while, the only problem is that usgs has posted nothing, and my earthquake app on my phone hasn't flagged anything either. i'd just like to know because of the lack of info that has been present on any local or national media.

"Inactive fault may trigger big quake after all"
David Perlman, San Francisco Chronicle Science Editor

San Francisco Chronicle
July 11, 2010 04:00 AM

This is the link, but it won't link... so Google the title of the article to get to the source webpage.
www.sfgate.com.../c/a/2010/07/10/BAG51EBH9B.DTL



A seismic fault in the Sierra Nevada, believed to have been quiet for more than 3 million years, is active after all and capable of triggering strong quakes with magnitudes of 6 or even 7, scientists say.

it was in san diego around 1700-1800 local time. i've felt earthquakes before, and when it hit, it reminded me a lot of the 7.2 that hit baja on easter if that helps. like i said, i've already checked the usgs and came up empty.

I realize that while the world hasn't been what you would call 'quiet' for the past week....it hasn't been exactly releasing a whole lot of energy either, comparitvely. I wouldn't be suprised to see some more 'red' soon.

6.2 magnitude earthquake strikes ChileJuly 12, 2010,



A 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck Chile's mine rich north on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported, but Chilean officials said there were no reports of any damage or injuries.

The quake was centered 49 miles east northeast of Calama, at a depth of 61.5 miles. It hit at 20:11 local time (23:11 p.m. EDT).

"It was a quake of medium intensity. It caused some consternation among residents, but there are no reports of any damage," Johaziel Jamett

Acitvity is too quiet, I suspect pressure is building, the sunspot activity and recent lunar eclipse may have an effect, causing the quakes to slow. I am predicting a major occurance in the next 24 hrs.

Map

The Main quake was not on any known active Faultline ( see NZ Active Faults Database). It seems the 5.3 was on the south side of the Waiau River and all the aftershocks are on the north side of the river. The aftershocks span a length of 6km along the valley. The valley runs at right angles to most of the main faultlines in the North Island which run SW-NE.
There is an unnamed fault with the ID number of 23740, on the other side of Frasertown, but its tiny.

How exactly does a lunar eclipse cause earthquakes to slow?

Activity all looks pretty normal to me. 33 x 5+ quakes in the last 7 days is around the norm, maybe very slightly under.

Maybe the lunar eclipse is 'slowing' the earthquakes because people were too busy watching the eclipse and did not notice the normal activity rather like before every man and his dog jumped on the earthquake doom wagon. Long may it continue!

The link between sun spots/solar wind and earthquakes has not in my opinion been adequately proven yet, and whilst I consider that it could have an effect as it is an electromagnetic force, I have yet to see a really positive correlation.

Maybe it is a bit larger now
