Slip - boy, your a riot today :-) USGS was on the news just a short time ago speaking on JdF Plate and the quakes. I didn't catch it but a friend called to tell me it was on. Imagine if they are going on the news to talk about it They might have a little concern.

I know I have concern for this area - major concern

This one seems strange - is it volcanic?

Hi Anmarie,

I doubt that Nth Colombia quake is volcanic in origin. It's right near a transform fault (shown on the map below as a green line) and they've had a fair number of quakes in that area over the years, some of them pretty deep:



The above map can be found along with others for this quake on this page at USGS.

Doesn't seem to be anything that much to worry about, really. Least I hope so!

Best regards,

Mike

You sure about that. I thought it had only just been issued.

Check in Help About. I am on 3.5.2 and I normally update as soon as they come out.


Yep


Uber-geek hubby got it sorted for me... version is ready, just not approved. He installs everything for me as he's got the lappy tightly locked-down for security etc.

www.godlikeproductions.com...

Plus, they announced the upgrade to Firefox 3.6 on Facebook over a month ago ... go to following link to the appropriate thread and hit the new link provided in the comments section...

Hope that helps

Seems to be a bit of action on both sides of the Phillipine Plate. Is that significant or normal?

Big thanks for that. Installed 3.6 and the new eQuake and all is working fine.

By the way to people thinking of going this route, you need to install Firefox 3.6 first and then the new eQuake from the link. FF will prevent it from loading, but just click on Allow. Restart FF again and eQuake will be there.

2003 10 31 - Off the East Coast of Honshu, Japan - M 7.0

2004 09 05 - Near the South Coast of Honshu, Japan - M 7.4
2004 09 05 - Near the South Coast of Western Honshu, Japan - M 7.2

Did you notice in the link you posted this comment:


Japan's early warning system predicted the earthquake just before it hit, with public broadcaster NHK interrupting a sumo match to warn residents to take cover.


They predicted it??? (May be not too far in advance but more detail on this would be interesting)

I know this is just a little one, but it was so shallow. Is this an unpopulated area?

Nothing really special about the system.

When earthquakes occur, preliminary tremors called primary (P) waves are detected first. These occur at high speeds and are followed by the slower and bigger main tremors, called secondary (S) waves. In the Emergency Earthquake Warning system, the difference in the speeds of the two types of waves is analyzed to estimate the time the S waves will arrive and their intensity before the main tremors take place. This information is then immediately announced.

The window of time from the announcement of an Earthquake Early Warning until the arrival of the main tremors is very short, i.e. a matter of seconds (or between several seconds and a few tens of seconds). In areas that are close to the focus of the earthquake, the warning may not be transmitted before strong tremors hit.

The system is supposed to alert any region facing an intensity of "lower five" or more on Japan's 7 point scale that ranks the amount of shaking an earthquake brings to the surface. Since a given earthquake's impact on buildings will depend on its depth, direction, and on the geological structure of the earth, the intensity scale is related to but not directly correlated with the magnitude alone.
