Yeah, with that second one happening so close in magnitude to the first, these could be foreshocks...eeks.. lookout Alaska.


Also, those were strong enough to knock out a whole bunch of stations it appears...AVO stations in trouble, all dead...Also, Alaska Tsunami warning network stations all dead...

Also, another one (third) just hit....got it in gee...smaller though I think 4.5ish
edit on Thu Oct 7th 2010 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


was a 5.3... earthquake.usgs.gov...
what can I say...getting conservative in my old age...


Update: some stations on AVO network are back, but ones around the epicenters of the big quakes are still shot...

These are a bit nerve racking. Do we have any common posters in that area? Would love to hear a first-hand account and get the low down on what the locals are saying about it. Foreshocks? That was my first thought/concern also, being so close together.

With the quake under helens today too, and those recent quakes off the coast....hmmmm

Watching the closest station in gee, it is doing more than what the USGS is reporting on...There are continual small aftershocks going on as we speak...They're only reporting the bigger ones.

looks like another 5.5 or so just hit at about 5:41 UTC...waiting on USGS

another 4.6...guess I'll get conservative again...

Well that depends on what you consider the norm.

If we looked at the aftershocks from the big Chile quake, or the recent swarms after the big BAJA/Mexico quake, or even after the recent NZ quake....then everything is pretty normal.

Aftershocks from a big quake. That's about it....Unless these prove to be foreshocks for a bigger one to come. But it appeared there were already foreshocks to the biggest 6.4 already present in the area...So chances are these are just aftershocks...And from watching still in GEE, there are a lot more than that, below 2.5 that are happening but not reported. It's dying down a bit though.

thanks for the graph, always nice to have the visuals. Those are some pretty significant aftershocks thought, considering it was just a 6.4.

It was a bit more than that, with the 6.1 shortly following. The Aluetians get quite a few double quakes, especially 6's together.Without actaully checking I think it happens at least once a year from memory.

Every region has different geology, we quite often get 6's here offshore NZ that don't have any aftershocks ( 3 this year).

I will say this, we seem to be getting more and more "twins" or "doubles" globally, where there are two very strong/major quakes within seconds, minutes or hours of each other.

More precise recording than in the past?

Any additional thoughts on the AR quakes, tho small, a lot of them. Getting close to the New Madrid which concerns me.

As always thanks for all the updates!

We are still only talking 102 events in the last 90 days, with the largest of those 3.0. (Sorry that is 102 for 1.0 mag to 3.0 mag) There will be smaller ones under 1.0.

It seems to be concentrated around Guy. I am still thinking oil and gas extraction from shale but no one has confirmed if this is a shale/oil/gas area.
