Apparently at about 1620-1630 MDT a large seismographic reading hit almost every station in the world!
I called the USGS Alaska Science Center in Anchorage and spoke to one of the scientists. He wasn't aware of the event and I had to send him the actual
seismograph website. He wasn't sure what in the world is going on and sent it to his superiors for further analysis. Personally, I wonder what the
implications to us may be. I live in Jacksonville, FL where the seismograph readings were the worst. I never felt a thing, but I don't really think I
would have if this were caused by some type of solar radiation. What exactly does a Hyder flare release? Are there any gravitational disturbances that
can cause it? The magnetosphere has been going wild the last two days. I don't know... any answers?
