Westcoast, I agree the activity is on an upswing. There's a big quake predicted for today. They saw rainbow clouds over LA. People are getting really weird about what 'might' happen.

In some ways, I think the fear and panic is almost as bad as an event actually happening. It disrupts the normal day to day activities and concentration levels.

I mean, at this VERY MOMENT, if you look up our beautiful valley to the east, there are what many are describing in another thread as 'earthquake clouds', as shown in photos they have posted. Have a look. Should we all run for the hills? I guess we just need to appreciate every moment we are given on this beautiful rock we call Earth.

WOW...talk about wierd!! I did just that about two hours ago and my immediate thought was that they looked like EQ clouds. Then I noticed there was another sun Halo. Did you see it? It is gone now..lasted about an hour.

I almost got my camera and took some pics to post here, but I feel the same way you do. I do not want to go overboard and look for something that may not be there and am creating myself by looking to hard. You know what I mean? Wierd to see what you just posted though. I noticed the odd thing about the clouds were that they were going from norht to south rather than the usuall east to west. Did you notice that?

Check out the latest EQ for our area....several more today at Mount Hood and another off the coast. Definately a little.......odd.

Rats!! I missed the sun halo! But I'm like a bat out of a cave when I occasionally step outside, since I work inside, and avoid looking at the sun until my eyes adjust.

I did notice the north / south cloud movement. A little odd but sometimes that is how the clouds move across the foothills up this way, but not too often.

I have been watching the EQ activity today. It is somewhat un-nerving. I suppose being prepared and aware is the best that we can do, without spreading fear of the 'what-ifs'.


Enjoy our beautiful weather today!!

Yes, I have been paying more attention to these things (more than usuall anyways
). In that sense, I know that it is not normal, but then again I am looking harder than normal so I don't want to make too big of a deal out of it!!

I have been outdoors almost all day and plan to be for the rest of it. Beautiful!!

Here is one more link, showing the time-depth and cross sections for Hood. Good stuff.

Question from an un-educated earthquake watcher- Does the depth of the Gold Beach quakes give indication of anything? Not much variance except for the 2.5, which is a little ways away......

(edit to add): Meh, a little research answered my question, apparently 10k is the approximate common depth for (ugh) big quakes. Do you all agree?

Actually that is a really good question. One thing to keep in mind when looking at the quake lists for USGS is that sometimes, before the quake depth is oficially determined it will default to a certain number, depending on the depth. I believe (someone correct me here if I am wrong) if is whithin a certain range it will default to 10 km. Usually that will be updated unless it cannot be defined. I think that these Oregon quakes happen to really be at that depth, but many others are just automatic.

I don't know if there is really any connection between depth vs severity. It just depends on what kind of quake it is, and which fault. If you start looking at the graphs that have a cross section of the quakes and their depth it can really paint you a picture. If it's quakes involving a volcano (like the link I posted above) it can help give an idea if it is strictly tectonic or if it might be showing magma rising to the surface, breaking through.

Hi westcoast and everyone else, I live in Oregon outside of Portland, and I have also been wondering what is happening, seems like the earth is changing. We seem to look at the same things, and we also have the same questions??? It does seem like something is changing.

It seems that I live at the end of the last lahar flows that came down from Mount Hood, and now I am wondering if that is still a good plan. I do not panic, but I do like to be prepared. And informed.

Thank you so much for all of the information. I heard the sky quakes last year, but I have not heard anything unusual lately. Will try to check this thread, it is a great subject! The information about the earthquakes is very useful.

Edited for grammar.

So check out THIS seismo for Rainier. HERE is the link to the main list.

If you go to the main list and click through all the Rainier stations, you will find this on three of them, this repeating....noise. I'm not sure what it is. They look like very sharp spikes...either like very small micro quakes that aren't even registering, or maybe something local like rocks falling.

It appears to start on the 18th and pick up in frequency and strength. I haven't seen this signature there before and it seems to be intensifying so I'm looking for some educated opinions? (or otherwise...
)

Westcoast: I take it you live in Western WA, too?

Don't you think it's likely to be weather related? We've been having crazy storms here for several days (since the 18th) and the temperature has been rising and falling rapidly, sometimes going from balmy to winter coat weather in a matter of minutes.

I've been looking at the seismos too, and I think it's likely there's a lot of rapid melting and freezing going on, causing disturbances in the ice and snow and moving things around.

Westcoast, Quakewatcher, how are your moods today? Did you feel the quake this morning? I didn't, but I heard my house pop and crackle, I thought my daughter was coming down the stairs. When I got up she was sound asleep, that was weird, until I heard on the news about the quake.

Anyway, everyone's moods are terrible today. At home, at the store, at work. I remember when the Cali / Mexico quake hit and there was a thread on the feelings people were having. It wasn't happy thoughts.

Just wondering if you are seeing any physical / emotional effects of this quake, here in our area. And from whatever apparently hit all the seismos in the world yesterday!!

Hang on, it is becoming a wild ride!!

PS- Westcoast, did you see the eq clouds yesterday around 5:30 pm, up here in the valley?

What hit all the seismos yesterday was the 6.5 earthquake in Brazil. End of story.

Anyway, yeah I think I might have heard the house make noise because I woke up and looked at the clock. My cats are always active at that hour (they sound like a herd of elephants) so I just blamed it on them. They seem unconcerned although one of them did eat through the bag and down half a loaf of bread last night. Unfortunately, this is normal for her.

The kids seemed to be in a pretty good mood this morning. I'll let you know how I feel after my second cup of coffee.

Yes, that seems to be the case regarding the Brazil quake. I guess it was very deep from what I was able to tell.

Sounds like your cats and mine are related, always up before the alarm goes off!!

Glad to hear all is good with the moods in your abode.

Sorry, I hadn't checked my own thread for awhile...it's taking all my time just to keep up with oil spill threads!


So first, Puterman did a good job of commenting on the Rainier seismo on the volcano thread...I'm sure you saw it!
I'm no sure yet that it is 'normal', but whatever it was, it seems to be quieting down. Having said that, I just went to check on it and there is something signifcant that just showed up....at about 04:40 UTC. HERE

As of right now, I am not finding anything listed anywhere that would account for it. It shows up on three of the Rainier seismos.

Yes I am in the NW corner of the State...the weather continues to be wierd. I had to drain several inches out of our newly filled pool (being optimistic)....it had rained so much in the past 24 hrs!

I did not feel that quake....so no story for me to tell there anyways. BUT, I have been noticing the on-going EQ clouds. Those and the sun halos....I have seen more of these in the past month than I can recall in YEARS. Strange stuff. Also...rainbows in general. My avatar is a pic I took from my own backyard....brightest one I've ever seen and it isn't the only one like that this year. I dunno....there are some things in the air lately. Do you guys know what I mean???

Some interesting new articles also posted in the volcano watch an EQ thread. All we need is more news and studies about how long over due we are!!!
Keep your eyes and senses open....

The weather in Oregon is also strange, and it does seem like something is different this year. Last week I was driving past Mt. Hood and there was a huge rainbow behind it, the rainbow seemed bigger and brighter than usual, but I was not able to get a photo.

Love the rainbow picture in your avatar, it is awesome!

Where I live (Portland metro area) it seems like many communities are having earthquake related meetings and trainings. This is a recent thing and some of these events were just planned or announced, just thought that was interesting.

Earthquakes and volcanoes do seem to be in the news alot, however, sometimes I wonder if we are getting too much theoretical information, and not enough actual data. There have not been any earthquakes where I live, at least not any big ones, but I know the ones that matter are the ones off of the coast.

This year it does seem much more important to pay attention to all sorts of things, and to observe and be aware.

Hey guys, hasn't been too much to post lately, but tonight I am feeling a need to give you a heads up. Just pay attention to the maps...and your animals.

I made a post on the earthquake thread tonight because my dog compelled me. He is not much of a barker and for about two hours he just kept giving me this strange look like he heard something he didn't understand and wouldn't quite barking. He stood in the middle of the family room and it was very bizarre behavior for him.

About two minutes after my post the quake in Cali hit. Now, I am not saying that he was predicting that particular quake, because I am a long ways away from it, but.....our fault lines are connected and now these 'after shocks' are making me a bit nervous. I just took a look at our volcanos and check out thier activity for today:

Just a heads up to remember the Yin and Yang....ever since the big chile quake, I am still waiting for the Yang!!

Bumping this up for nw friends who actually sleep at night.


They added a couple of more quakes to baker and also Helens, so it's even more now. Not any more today though.....but my dog is once again acting strange. *sigh*

Those quakes just keep rolling in down south.....

When vibrations reach your ears out-of-phase,
that is...
when the waveform you are listening to in one ear, is 180 degrees out of phase...(upside down) you will believe that the sound originates from directly behind you.

The phase relationship between the sounds our ears receive determine the direction.

Low frequency rumblings are very difficult to determine the direction of because the frequency is so low.

A high frequency is easy to triangulate - and locate.. where is that bird? for example.

The lower frequency the more difficult it is to determine direction.

The distance between your ears is about 6 inches... a 6 inch long sound wave for one cycle is 2000 Hz. That 6" difference is what our brain uses to triangulate direction of a sound source. So at high frequencies you have a long baseline, but at 100 Hz a wavelength is 10 feet, and compared to 6" starts getting pretty tough to locate with a 6" baseline (ear distance between them)

at TEN hz.. ( a typical harmonic vibration of moving magma ) the wavelength is 100 feet! and determination of the source is impossible with a mere 6" ear to ear size.

Hope this helps rather than confuses.

While we are on the subject - Here is what the USGS has to say about it today

Today’s Earthquake Fact
The earliest reference to unusual animal behavior prior to a significant earthquake is from Greece in 373 BC. Rats, weasels, snakes, and centipedes reportedly left their homes and headed for safety several days before a destructive earthquake. Anecdotal evidence abounds of animals, fish, birds, reptiles, and insects exhibiting strange behavior anywhere from weeks to seconds before an earthquake. However, consistent and reliable behavior prior to seismic events, and a mechanism explaining how it could work, still eludes us.
