Anyone know if there is something up with this? From the USGS Seismogram displays.

I am afraid I don't have time to 'listen' to it as it is nearly 4am and I am off to bed, but I will say it is not seismic so you do not need to worry about it.

As to whether it is solar or cultural, it will have to wait until tomorrow if I m not too busy.

Hopefully that's it for another few days..


Famous last words!
Bloody Hell. That one did it. We've got 'decent' liquefaction now. Whole back yard and half the street. Just filled up some water. It even turned the computer off!

Lots of rumbles and shakes and as I type we've had another.

It was 6.0 quake about 1 1/2 hrs after the 5.5 one. This is a scary thing happening and OK, Im not an expert on earthquakes but I cant recall reading about other major quakes elsewhere in the World having these on the magnitude and frequency that ChCh is.

Just met an 'old soak' out on the street who was by the Heathcote River having a bourbon when it occurred and said it looked like a riverwide shoal of small fish skimming the surface. He was an interesting chap, worked for Air NZ for 35 years, is a collector (good work) and resolute as we all are here...but crikey it's wearing thin.

If you are in Christchurch, fill up on water if you haven't already (from your hot water tank) and if possible. Use oldest water first. Talk to your neighbours and check on people. Power is out in the east (not here thankfully) and with frosty nights people will be especially vulnerable. At least it's not raining.

Be safe.

ERITREA - Nabro?

I am so jealous! Teams of geologists from Djibouti left 4 hours ago, but they did not tell anybody where they are going. The son of my friend Emur Tahir just told me his father had a call last night; then he got very excited and took off to his office, telling everybody he will be away for a few days on expedition. They would probably take off by boat to Beraisole, meet up with Saudi group and 4x4 trek over land - about 50 km distance of which there are no roads, normally we would use the river beds or lave 'snakes' to drive on. In total about 25 to 30 hours trekking - ohhhhh darn!

I know this is an earthquake tread, but since it was the quakes that draw the attention I would appreciate if you would allow this relation to remain here.

Still about one hour to day light, another to get sat pictures converted to photo images before we will know for 100% sure what exactly is happening. Most likely it is the North flank of Nabro that blew up into the sky. By IR the ash cloud is very hot and fast moving, probably very big amount of ash. It is blowing towards and over the Sahara.

I expect this to be classified as the biggest volcanic eruption in Africa for at least the past 200 years. Blissfully unaware of this, or the main World Media is just ignoring it. However this will potentially affect the whole world - and in very short time more particularly Europe and Western Asia. The more likely scenario is that this cloud will spread over the Sahara, that will cool the Sahara down. The Sahara is the Liver of Europe (heat) - that will affect the complete global air circulation patterns.

Let us see how long this will last and how much ash is there. Adding to the Chile volcano, this could really COOL the world down!

Truly exciting times!

Interesting.

Sorry, have been preoccupied, but you are providing really interesting information that deserves attention.

No problem, I just go my own way - anyway. If I was in NZ I would probably not be concerned about Africa either.
Only, this is my own backyard where I walked hundreds of kilometers and drove thousands in 4x4 over terain where the nearest human beings are hundres of kilometres away - with no roads.

Here is the first Daybreak SAT photo:


This photo below shows ash cloud from Nabro reaching Khartoum (Red dot) in Sudan - nearly 1,000 km away in only 8 hours!!

Good to see you're ok Aoraki & Moorfnz. I truly hope there are no fatalities with this one.
Tell me, did you look at my map? Was it even a close resemblance to the liquifaction areas?

Aromaz

It is a pleasure to have the company of such an informed individual on these boards, I appreciate it.

Is there a significance in the speed at which the plume in traveling?

Also, I have noticed that there appears to be two plumes; one large and one smaller one (sourced North West of the main suspected eruption), can you possibly explain this, or is it from the same source?

Regards, Skellon.

What a day


We're ok. Hubby was sent home from work with the others and he's very pale and shaken. I've been round with neighour - we needed the company and alcohol. Her husband was driving around nr Bottle Lake and road opened up and he is in a hole - he's out of the cab now (after trapped 1 hr) and a motorbike went in and swallowed by muddy hole while he was stuck (both fine).

Fresh cracks and chimney leaning more.

Nerves very frayed.. confidence shattered... but we're safe and I hope all our NZ quake thread readers and contributors' families and friends are, too. Stay safe all.

there seems to be a few "real" experts on here so i want to pose the question.....is all this action with quakes and volcanoes out of the ordinary? please no non-experts or religious freaks.

(Thought I posted this an hour ago already ??)

Off on another horse.

This Nabro blew off around 21h00 GMT/UTC on 12 June. It is nearly 5 days since the M2.5 major solar 'flare' I talked about here on Page 137. A little long, but considering the Flux from that solar incident is still hitting the Earth environment and there was a minor somewhat strange spike midday yesterday:

I would still rate this volcano as potential result triggered by that solar incident.
Since there are a few things happening worldwide; it is a good indication things might be linked.

ChristChurch 6.0 quake;
Nabro volcano blew off in Eritrea
Near same time volcano KIZIMEN in NE Russia also blew it's caldera off at 23h50 on 12 June in a series of at least eight strong explosions. Second eruption this year, the other was on 7 February to 23 March. Air traffic code now RED for NE Russia and parts of Alaska.

This Kizimen might be the recordings seen earlier on posting of MOUNTAINENIGMA above. Ash plumes went up to 16,000 ft and in four hours has reached 240 km from volcano.

Lucky no one hurt badly in those Chch quakes!
Was at work so didn't know there was a 6.0 till 4:30pm

Listening to the reports on RadioNZ on the way home from work, one guy said that the 6.0 was different than some of the other 5+ aftershocks, had a "rotational" feel to it, didn't catch which suburb he was in.
MoorfNZ you mentioned this too about the 5.5 last week didn't you


Stay safe (and warm) you Cantab's

edit, oh BTW the Opawa Cycle Shop has finally collapsed, nothing left but a pile of rubble
edit on 13-6-2011 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


FWIW the 5.5 was actually a 5.484ML and the 6.0 was a 5.96ML according to Geonet
aftershocks since the 6.0
4.871
3.366
3.746
3.501
3.044
3.522
3.709
