Okay you guys, something is off with these quakes.
First, here is the location for the last one...the biggest at 2.1:

Go to THIS
map to see the exact location and you can also click on the event info AND select the seismos. Once
you start looking around at the seismos, you'll notice something odd; it doesn't match up. The quake is about 30 miles to my NW...but the quake
shows up strongest to my EAST,and even SOUTH. They are all at 100 microvolts, so that isn't an issue.
The last quake was almost at the suface. Extremely shallow, and I don't think I have ever seen one there before.
Now look at THIS
map and go to RPW. pull up the last six hours (or longer if
you open this post tomorrow!
). Both quakes show up the strongest on this one by far...and then there is another nice little prolonged quake a
short time after the 2.1, which has me wondering more.
This seismo is located just SE of Rockport, about 40 miles from my house, but I think the event was closer to me, further West of the seismo,since it
also shows up so strong in Arlington. It is raining really hard here right now...we are on flood watch. The snow level has gone up to over 8,000 feet
so there isn't any snow there right now. Either way,those are clearly quakes on the seismo.
My problem is that if the PNSN is off...it is by a large amount, which you don't usually see by THAT much. I just looked at the report again and it
hasn't been reviewed and the depth is preset,so I expect to see it change. I just think it is wierd that the location seems so wrong. The computer
does the same thing I am doing in a way.
