Normally we don't have more than a few small earthquakes in a week. This is different. These are called deep tremors and the waves travel in mph rather than mps. This started in 2002 and happens once every 14-15months for a couple of weeks,moving up the coast-line. Nobody knows why. Yes, that is a lot!!!


Thanks Puterman

Not to worry it's only your Reptilian overlords up to no good underground as usual.

Or perhaps it's a secret underground particle accelerator like the LHC ?

I'm sure we've just had 3 earthquakes in the last half hour here in Bay of Plenty, New Zealand or maybe not directly here, but have felt 3 in the last half hour. (Sorry make that 4, another one just happened as I'm typing this) nothing on earthquake usgs as yet, or geonetnz or on ndbc.noaa.
7.23pm
Edit: Just had another 2, total 6 in an hour and a half. Haven't found them on any of the above sites as yet. Just small ones by the feel.

Just asked some friends up there and nothing felt... Geonet is being slow...

Local drum shows an event... www.geonet.org.nz...

EDIT: Updated drum shows a lot of activity - as above poster says, about 5 events in last hour... not all big but one was - still not on felt report on Geonet...

The graph attached which was in your reply-is that showing the earthquakes which would be felt in the Bay of Plenty area? I'm not sure how to read it (meanwhile I've just felt another one). They sound shallow, haven't got the big 'rolling' sound before hand. Local radio station phone is engaged, can't get through. Checked outside to see if any big trucks were working nearby but can't hear or see any.

Edit:7.36pm Just felt another small one. Getting a little spooked now, kind of reminiscent of the Edgecumbe earthquake pre-build up. Just had another one 7.37pm Just before the Edgecumbe 6.5 there were lots of small tremors happening for about 3 days prior (1987).

Yes, the graph I posted is in the Bay of Plenty. The most recent events/quakes are shown in the bottom right hand corner...

.. just refreshed the chart and it's really moving up there (I'm in Canterbury).

Sorry I was watching Coronation St on TV when it was happening, had no idea, and went to bed


The data wouldn't have come out on the other quakes right away anyway.

Heres the list, 10 quakes offshore, one on land
Reference, Latitude, Longitude, UTC Date (yyyy/mm/dd), UTC Time (hh:mm:ss), Depth, Magnitude, Felt

Map

Good analogy with the 1987 Edgecumbe quake, this swarm is only 10km east of the epicentre of that Mag 6.1ML which caused so much damage.

Worth noting that in that case the foreshock was large enough ( 4.9ML) that people left their work stations and houses before the big quake hit. Perhaps leaving the house is a better option than standing under a door way.


edit: looking at that graph moorfnz posted there were a lot more than 11 quakes, perhaps a lot of 1's, it will take them some time to plot them, maybe by tonight

Our first heat wave here in the Bay area.. 90 here in my house. Put the atomic clock on the window sill in the sun - 106 degrees. I am melting.
Don't forget the full moon tonight. Last night it was so bright and early this morning I got up and looked out the window and the moon was HUGE and you could read a newspaper by the light.

I have an "in my area" earthquake "feeling" today.. keeping watch.

I'll let you off seeing as it's Corrie and not 'Stenders you were watching


Off down to Tekapo for a few days - while there am going to check out an interesting place there called "Earthquakes" .. I kid you not.. I only found it on the map the other day when checking out our route down there!

This has not been picked up by USGS yet and it should have been if a mag 5.0

EMSC does not have it yet, nor RSOE.

Edit: muzzy should have felt that one if he has not got his head in Coronation Street!

Yeah I felt it, just a wobbling, no noise or rattling.
I was sitting on a chair at the Doctors getting the wax syringed out of my ears, as I woke up totally deaf this morning.

It was so slight that the Doc didn't feel it standing next to me. Amazing.
Widely felt - 1008 felt reports

Not where we expected eh. (BOP)

edit: I have just got home from working in Wgtn. and filled in a Geonet Felt Report myself, when I had done so the total had gone up to 1017

edit 2: I just filled out a USGS Felt Report, it finished by giving me the MM Intensity that I felt , it was MM2
It will likely need multiple Felt Reports from Wanaganui of MM5 or more to get them to post it on their lists. In the past they have missed a lot of 5's here. But they have also picked up quite a few that Geonet didn't post on their Recent Quakes public lists too. Thats how I got to find and use the Search page at Geonet, I e-mailed them and asked how come you didn't list quake x that USGS had up, they replied "because it was deep and no-one reported it to them". But someone reported it to USGS. An ex pat I imagine.

Lets see if they list it now (USGS)

You would happen to know which particular place is seeing a particular increase?
Cheers


Not really, everything looks normal. If anything the numbers are down.

The Alpine Fault is still quiet (locked) . There was a 3.9 near Arthurs Pass on Friday, but the area hasn't been getting many. (the Alpine Fault is our San Andreas) A few quakes east west just north of Kaikoura yesterday, worth watching, could end up something happening near Hanmer Springs (or maybe not)

Offshore Wanganui and Matata are quiet also.


Quote from 48 hours ago
This is the closest I will get to predicting earthquakes
through seeing where the gaps are.
The Hanmer Springs yet to come?

Tekapo maybe
