Since 6th till 30th October 2008 more than 20 000 (!!) events occurred at the southerm edge of the Nový Kostel area. The hypocenters lie in the depth range 10.5 to 9 km (below the microswarm of February 2007) and have reactivated the southerm patch of the 2000 swarm. Several M>3.5 events have occurred making this swarm the strongest one since the M=4.6 swarm of 1985/86.
The swarm is exceptional by the unusually fast release of energy (>10 000 events in 7 days). Due to this evolution the activity is expected to continue in next days/weeks with possible interrupts.
Perhaps PuterMan might know better link pages for those to be able to see further back?

I am working on an alternative to the useful earthquake listings that you can get to from my signature.
This is very much work in progress at present but if you would like to take a peek you can view the page here
The links down the side are also work in progress but should eventually allow navigation to blocks of links.
I would like to know of any pertinent long running threads on earthquakes and/or volcanoes so I can add them to the list. (Something on the PNW would be good - westcoast(?))

Speaking of intense, that quake you posted looks bigger than 5.8 from here in NZ.
Looks like a 6
Clearest and largest reading off the Live Internet Seismic Server
South Pole, Scott Base and Chile no where near as a strong reading
In fact GEOFON had 5.1 when I first looked 5 hrs ago, since upgraded to 5.6
and EMSC had 5.4 when I looked at the same time, now upgraded to 6.4 Mw ( and the source they used was USGS-NEIC)
Magnitude Mw 6.1
Region PACIFIC-ANTARCTIC RIDGE
Date time 2010-10-30 15:18:41.8 UTC
Location 56.70 S ; 142.67 W
Depth 33 km
Distances 3394 km SE Dunedin (pop 114,347 ; local time 04:18 2010-10-31)
3420 km SE Oamaru (pop 13,020 ; local time 04:18 2010-10-31)
another quake ona spreading ridge, add one for the expanding earth theory (no subduction here)

The survival kits I came across at the Albertson's about a week and a half ago. But since then King 5 ran a couple of stories about earthquake readiness and how the coastal areas here aren't at all prepared for Tsunamis. My kids had an earthquake drill on Wednesday. The more bizarre part of that was that my son overheard the teacher saying something about how they weren't supposed to do the earthquake drill for another month to another teacher afterwards (which is what finally made me really question all this)... I don't know, it's just got me a little un-nerved.
