Well...if I had just opened it up, I would have thought there must be some really bad interference from somehwere.....but I watched it start with a quake and get worse from there. I think it is tectonic....local.

I just noticed a 5.1 West Chile Rise was put in as well. It made it's way around I guess.

2.9, 1.9, & 1.2 at San Simeon.
All within the last 40 minutes. Aftershocks?

Sorry not to reply last night. I had an early night instead of the normal 3am.

Good signature for the 2.7 just before 3am UTC MLAC.CI..BHZ.2011.243. I assume however your were looking at the 30th so this is the IRIS view of it: MLAC.CI..BHZ.2011.242. That mish mash at the bottom is the signal you were looking at. (Looks a bit windy there as well? Or microseisms)

I listened to the last 4 hours of the day and in amongst all the junk (interference almost certainly as it is completely gone on filtering all above 6Hz) there is jus one small earthquake. A cute little 'pop' @ 4000sps (100 x speed)



ETA: If you look at the Gakona magnetometer (link in my signature) you can see incoming that matches the times and ...........

There is danger for great earthquake around Mid-Atlantic ridge. Seriously there hasn't been strong earthquakes for a long time. Still there is potential for it, specially near Iberia and Canary islands. It would be devastating if 8.0+ magnitude earthquake would hit there. Maybe worst disaster mankind has ever faced.

Lets hope this was not pre-quake. Tsunami would destroy all great cities around West Europe and Eastern coast of US. But that quake is coming, no one knows when.

Thanks, Puterman. Your reply to WC helps me as well. Was watching Mammoth yesterday too. The winds come up blowing eastward across the Sierra fairly predictably in the late afternoon, some days stronger than others, so that's always a consideration. Used to live in Carson City and hope to return, so that area of NV/CA is definitely one of particular interest to me. Of course, Hawthorne and Long Valley are not far away. Here's a quick sample of historical quakes in western Nevada. Would suggest they're leaning toward overdue:

Sept. 3, 1857 6.2 Western Nevada
March 15, 1860 7.0 Pyramid Lake area

Dec. 26, 1869 6.7 Virginia Range

Hi Thebel, yes a largish quake in that position needs watching, but I have to take issue with the scenario you present for the Canaries.

At the risk of repeating myself, please take a look at this post which links back to another where the theory that a large landslide in the Canaries would wipe out the East Coast is debunked. You do need to read the contents and not just take my word for it!


Of course if you disagree and have credible sources as to why the good Doctor is wrong them I am happy to take a look.

The interesting thing about this once is that it's antipodes point is close to Indonesia where they had that 6.8 recently. There has been some discussion on this thread regarding antipodes.

Hi...I didn't see this Ohio(!?!) quake mentioned on the thread. Its (only) a 3.1...but, unique for this area. Could this be connected to the Mineral, VA quake of last week...fracking (alot of natural gas work in OH, WV and PA)...just something else to look at and discuss.

Ooops...we must have been typing at the same time (time stamp wise). Great minds...yada yada...my questions though too...EQ are a rarity in this part of the US (at least ones that can be felt).

They are at it again!



Date/Time UTC,Latitude,Longitude,Magnitude,Depth(Km),Location
2011-08-20 17:13:07, -18.286, 168.062, 5.9, 37.3, Vanuatu

Only a 5.9 - except now it is a 6.5.

The 7.0 looks like it may have been increased to 7.1, and the 7.1 looks like it may be a 7.2 but the details still show the original. This makes it very difficult to tell. I have to wait for the ANSS version to confirm but it is showing these upgrades in the PDE database.

ETA:

Data Package for Magnitude 6.5 Vanuatu 20-Aug-11 usc0005ha0 now available. (914 Kb download)

Web site images only and USGS PAGER PDF
usc0005ha0.zip

Since the PDF of the web page is essentially just a duplication of the images I have dropped that to save space. The web page should always be available. If anyone would like a PDF copy just u2u me and I will create one for you.

Yesterday I went looking for the 7.0 Peru quake that happened on the 29th, the only thing I could find was a 4.2
honest mistakes, I'm sure

Well that one (Peru) is still around, but it was the 24th so off the 7 days lists.

quakewatch.wordpress.com...

The USGS page is still good.

Not mistake by the way, these are changes after closer examination BUT and this is my point, they always seem to happen AFTER the 7 days.

Most people look at the 7 days list and don't bother with the 8 - 30 and anyway the 8 - 30 list does not have the mag 6+ quakes nicely marked in red just to make it more difficult to find things.

After 7 days it is passée except to el stupidos like me!
