MAG 8.0 Earthquake NE of Higuey, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic N. American Ocean


earthquake.usgs.gov

There is no story yet, but I wanted to post this because it's in the ocean and it was a big quake. No info whatsoever yet from what I can find.

I got a text from USGS saying there was an EQ of a MAG 8.0 NE of Higuey, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic N. American Ocean at a depth of 13km.

I'm assuming this could possibly create a large tsunami so I felt the need to post this.

If this ends up being nothing, mods feel free to delete but I felt that I should get this out there in case there are people who may be in danger.

Hey! Good job-stay on it until confirm.

Better to be a little off than miss the whole thing.

Way to get it reported here ASAP.

Hope it is a false alarm or does no harm.

Seen some twitter but nothing else.

I am pretty sure tsunamis are created within minutes of an earthquake and are pretty visible... I think the depth is too much for this to cause any real harm. I could be wrong though. One of the largest tsunami waves recorded of all time was 1700 feet high initially and that was from an ocean earthquake relatively deep. 22 miles is hells deep though.

I have no idea man! I would just keep checking the link in the OP I made... I don't get how they sent me a notification via text and have yet to update. I will keep checking myself and hopefully find something soon!

Everyone else, please post any info if you find it ASAP. Thank you.

Supposedly USGS revised to 3.2

They made a mistake.

False info

Looks like a prank...

"1 Apr 2010 23:38:55 standard time in your timezone Location"

Alrighty then.

Poor taste, if it is a joke.

Where are you getting that info from?

Also, a 3.2 on land may be completely different from the quake that occurred in the ocean. It says 84km from the coast in my text alert. Although the quake would still be fairly significant that far away still.

That wouldn't be a funny joke at all... in fact that wouldn't be a joke, it would just be sick of someone to make up a false earthquake or any natural disaster, especially one so strong.

You should have recieved a follow up email that this event was deleted.

Ah, well I didn't.

But as anon72 said:

Not to mention I was just looking out for peoples safety. Nevertheless I'm happy to hear it was a false flag. No harm, no foul.

IRIS hasn't picked it up. www.iris.edu...

I really hope this is a false alarm. An 8.0 with such a shallow depth of 13 km would be devastating.

EDIT: False alarm.
