There were actually some moderate sized quakes offshore Oregon this past year. I think a 4.5 and maybe even a 5.0. You are correct though that typically you see them further out, on the 'outer' edge of the Juan de fuca plate. Notice again, the depth of the mentioned 1.7 quake: 37.3 km, again a deep one for our area.

They have updated the list:

MAP 2.2 2011/01/12 05:15:00 42.168 -120.496 11.8 12 km ( 8 mi) W of Lakeview, OR
MAP 2.5 2011/01/12 02:59:48 46.147 -120.478 18.4 21 km ( 13 mi) NW of Bickleton, WA
MAP 1.4 2011/01/12 01:06:55 47.867 -121.800 15.9 1 km ( 0 mi) E of Sultan, WA
MAP 1.0 2011/01/11 07:31:07 47.815 -122.622 19.4 9 km ( 5 mi) N of Poulsbo, WA
MAP 1.7 2011/01/08 15:39:37 43.969 -124.731 37.3 50 km ( 31 mi) W of Florence, OR
MAP 1.0 2011/01/08 06:35:12 47.627 -122.205 26.5 1 km ( 1 mi) ESE of Clyde Hill, WA
MAP 3.0 2011/01/07 22:35:40 47.812 -121.941 19.1 6 km ( 4 mi) SE of Monroe, WA


One of them onshore in Oregon, and both over 10 km deep.

Trying to catch up with earthquake news. Sorry been tied up with dealing with the floods around here - it's been a little stressful. I just had a quick look at the ugs site, what's going on in California? I haven' t the time to check it myself. thanks

Thanks for the update Puterman. It's still interesting to follow it, whether anything comes of it or not.

Yes, but looks normal to me, similar frequency and sizes to Aegean
this is where you should be watching
www.koeri.boun.edu.tr...

just above the map there is a line of options, you'll get a better overall picture
Last 24 Hours Last Seven Days Last 30 Days Last One Year Stations

If you click on Last 24hrs they give >Mag3.0, but 7 days is only Mag3.0>

A couple of things to keep in mind if you are serious about Quake Watching..

In these areas, Aegean, Turkey, Iran, California, New Zealand, Japan etc its when the numbers per day drop off to very few ( ie less than 5/day) that one should get nervous, bigger thngs then generally happen.
Where ever there are mountains there are earthquakes, that is how they are formed.

I know where you are coming from, when I first started following what was going on 5 years ago I was shocked too, New Zealand public lists show about 2-3 felt quakes per day, but when you get hold of the database its more like 30-70 per day when you include >Mag2's.

One place that seems at first glance to have been pretty quiet lately is Taiwan, not many major quakes (ie 5.0>) in fact is ticking (twitching) along nicely.

Okay guys, at risk of sounding like the "world wide earthquake" criers a few months ago, you HAVE to check out the world wide seismos right now. Something is wierd:

World servers


Check out the one for Oregon, and then comapre that to some others that have a really wierd signal at around the same time.

What the HECK????


Edit to Add:

Crap...just now saw the big quakes coming in......

two quakes in Bonin Island Japan. really close together same time. 6.5 and 6.6.

Okay, I know we just had some nice quakes in Japan...but this is something different.

This is the world wide seismo server near corvalis oregon

World wide


Here is the nearest one I could pull off the PNSN network:

PNSN

THIS is the page I got it from, it is the NEWO station.


The two above links will only work for a few hours, then you have to go to the main page to get it.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but don't those times match up?


EDIT TO ADD: It looks like almost all of the servers on the world-wide network has either a span of nothing recording, or really wierd signal all at the same time. So perhaps it was a technical glitch, and the local PNSN recording a coincidence? I can't find anything on any of the other local OR stations,

I have NEVER seen that many 6's so close - or even less than 12 hours apart tbh ... unreal - technical glitch??? Perhaps we ought to wait a while to see if they're revised

Yup, my guess will be that they are revised to two events.

Ha...just checked. So far, three:

MAP 6.5 2011/01/12 21:32:55 26.944 140.006 520.4 BONIN ISLANDS, JAPAN REGION
MAP 6.5 2011/01/12 21:32:55 26.944 140.006 520.4 BONIN ISLANDS, JAPAN REGION
MAP 6.6 2011/01/12 21:32:55 27.400 141.000 523.0 BONIN ISLANDS, JAPAN REGION


It is out to sea and really deep, so I doubt any risk of tsunami or injruies?

Yes I noticed this. It is NOT all at the same time and that was what caught my attention. I am investigating but it may take a day or two. I have copied all the traces. Significantly it happens in China earlier than elsewhere. In most places the drop out i for 80 or so minutes. I am trying to plot all this on GE with timings to see if I can see a pattern but my initial thoughts are satellite.

Oh, edit because I forgot to post what I came in to say: The Caucasus has been popping up in front of me today:

That quake west of the Bonin Islands looks more like a 6.2 to me


If you follow the Subduction Theory, I'd say a big chunk of the Pacific Plate just fell into the Earths Core, based on the depth and the distance from the original 7 last year..


edit: I'll stick my neck out and suggest there won't be any aftershocks from this.
