There have been a few clusters like this since the 7.2 a year or so ago, most have fizzled out, but definitely 'worth watching'

You are right, the Antarctica plate is a cap on all the other neighbouring plates.
Just interesting that the recent series of quakes in NZ seems to have a co-conspirator in the Sandwich islands.

Being 8,000 km apart makes it unlikely

But, (A pure hypothesis) if one do consider the whole AA plate getting lighter say in the region of Takahe; then the Pacific plate would have less resistance to move South - which would possibly be a sort of clockwise rotation. That then will grind the Nazca plate like a gear wheel Anti-clockwise. If the scale of these events were smaller than the 8,000 km I would have more merits but the Eight to Ten thousand km scale makes it a bit mind boggling to accept
- For me too!

just realized this one had been mentioned (6.0 near Honshu)
I do think however that this new 6.1 near Tokyo may not be another aftershock. Looks to me IMHO that this could be what everyone keeps talking about with the triad stirring. Tokyo REALLY needs to start paying attention.

Hi Shenon. Not sure what you want me to say. Yes it would seem there were two small shocks associated with the 6.1 which occurred very rapidly afterwards.

Since all three of these events are being carried by USGS and EMSC i would imagine them to be correct. I have just checked them out on JMA and they are all there as well.

By the way they are 6.0, 4.5 and 4.6 on JMA

Not an Aftershock then? This would make it the second new Quake after the 9.0 (the other Not-Aftershock was just a little bit to the North,gonna see if i can find the other one again)

Edit: Here it is.

First the Quake (the 7.1 one)


And the Aftershocks of it

Has it really been five hours since the last quake large enough to be registered with USGS?

Yikes....

ETA...Hawthorne is the only place in the states to have a micro quake in over an hour...wierd.

Is the tension building, or dying down??

I noticed that too. It seems odd that no earthquakes at or above 2.5 in the world have occurred in the last almost 6 hours.


Oh except Washington, that isn't on USGS now. (was it downgraded?) Maybe it's just a USGS thing.

If it helps any, here are the Chile and Honshu quakes for the past 7 days side by side.





I can't say that I see anything more than a coincidental relationship.
