Just had a decent quake here on the Kapiti Coast, NZ quite a sharp jolt, house shook like crazy, rumbled a bit first.
Nothing on Geonet yet, felt like a mid Mag 4 or a big 3 if close by.
I reckon in the Tararua Mts to the east.


edit: Here it is

Reference Number 3409613/G
Universal Time November 19 2010 at 7:31
NZ Daylight Time Friday, November 19 2010 at 8:31 pm
Latitude, Longitude 41.09°S, 175.10°E
Focal Depth 29.7 km
Richter magnitude 4.162
Region Wellington
Location
* Birchville, Upper Hutt ( at the confluence of Hutt and Akatarawa Rivers)
* 20 km west of Featherston
* 20 km south-east of Paraparaumu
* 40 km north-east of Wellington
www.geonet.org.nz...

368 Felt reports at the moment, our suburb of Raumati Beach 20km away has the most so far


I was right about the location
, it had that "rocky" feel about it, different feel to the ones that come from off shore to the west


When I say "rocky" I don't mean like rocking back and forth, but like rocks grinding against each other or smashing/ breaking apart, real harsh sort of jolting.
The quakes that come in towards us from under the sea to the west have more of a "liquidy" feel to them, perhaps its the alluvial plain that we are on, so the ground is liquifying above the base rock.

I know this is not very technically well described but thats how it feels.


I suspect the ones from the East under the mountains are uplifting of the mountains or folding.

It does seem strange...sort of in the middle there. Mind you it's only a couple of hundred k's from Toba. Are there any faults that lie through that area I wonder?

That would be the Sumatra Fault - also known as the Great Sumatra Fault Here and Here

Thanks Annmarie. For some reason I thought the faults lay mainly along the south west of the islands. That link was very insightful. Between you a Puterman I can see my sleep time reducing this weekend.

I haven't been watching long but I am hooked on the RSOE, saw this little tremor inside Yellowstone just thought I would see if it has been reported here. dont know if its rare since I have been watching it seems most quakes are outside of Yellowstone.

I am really enjoying the fragile earth forum.

I am amazed, always, at how these deep quakes just shake the whole planet. I have been using Wilber lately, from Iris Seismic Monitor. I always check the closest station, then the furthest, then somewhere in the middle.

Does anyone have info on 4 Yellowstone quakes today that were later deleted? Wondering if its normal for 4 to be deleted on one day - same location. Faulty equipment maybe?

Sorry no info but yes in Yellowstone that is not uncommon. It has the highest incidence of deletions in the world!


@All

If you want to debunk "OMG the whole world is having earthquakes all at once" you could use this page

Basically I have transferred two posts combined to create a little tutorial.

well explained, and a test at the end to boot


It took me about a month to figure out how all that works on my own

"Downgraded" to 3.9Mw now

The original magnitude was a bit dodgy anyway, what the heck is M-type="Nuttli" surface wave magnitude (mbLg) ?
At least they have some data now, 152 Felt reports,


See why you need the editing to last more than 4 hrs for us guys, what a mess

edit on 20-11-2010 by muzzy because: Why are they always changing stuff on the internet .arghhhhhhhhhhh, I noticed Google Earth has a new provider of mapping and placenames, for NZ anyway, mountains are where lakes are and visversa, and the Provincial Borders don't show anymore, I used that to compile my text data for my blog, now I have to use Google Maps or look up my Atlas, what is wrong with leaving things alone? if it ain't broke why fix it?, the new providers are called 2010 Wereis Sensis Pty Ltd ......... bloody Ozzies
