No they don't (original Reuters source).. must be a typo

www.reuters.com...


(Reuters) - A 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck in Oklahoma late on Saturday evening, the U.S. Geological Survey said, toppling a chimney, damaging buildings and sending a boulder the size of an SUV onto a rural road.

Yeah, but the guy said it was on a known fault... So I wanna see it. Not having much luck. I hope he didn't just lie to save a gas company a billion dollars.

Did you click on the link I inserted? Its just that the one you provided was a few hours ago...the one I placed was about 20 mins ago.....

www.breakingnews.com...

That, or its simply just two different reports....

I did, and then I checked their source - it's wrong - nothing on Reuters or their newsfeed about an upgrade to 5.8. I prefer to check the original source as well as USGS. If it changes I'll apologise but for now there's no mention of an upgrade.

Here, this resolves Reuters debate. They carried the automatic report I guess.

Note this is while 5.2, before the Tensor Solution was released and upgraded to official? 5.6 magnitude...

5.2 magnitude quake strikes Oklahoma in US-USGS
Nov. 5 | Sun Nov 6, 2011 12:09am EDT


www.reuters.com/article/2011/11/06/quake-usa-oklahoma-idUSN1E7A409N20111106


Nov. 5 (Reuters) -- A 5.2 magnitude earthquake struck near Oklahoma City in the U.S. Midwest, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on Saturday.

The USGS initially reported the quake as a 5.8 magnitude.

The quake was a shallow 3.1 miles (5 km ) deep and was centered 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Sparks, which is east of Oklahoma City.

Strange because I watched it come in on USGS and started as 5.2 then upped to 5.6 - must have blinked!!


But yes, it's still 5.6..

I have a sincere question for those of you more knowledgeable than me. If an eq occurred somewhere in these middle US areas, and it is -over- a richter 8, have studies been done to see what would happen to flimsy multi story apartment buildings such as mine, within distances (within 500 miles, within 200 miles,) I'd like the bad news, or how bad or not, the news, if you want and could Thanx.

USGS have started updating aftershocks now...

So far a 3.6 10mins after the 5.6... will be more to come

It really depends on the depth and quake mechanism (strike/slip or subduction etc) although subduction won't occur mid-USA


At those distances you're more likely to feel the S-wave action - bobbing up and down as if in a boat. The action could go on for a few mins - they estimate 4 mins of shaking from our Alpine Fault here in NZ if it goes at mag 8+. Scary thought, the 45 seconds we had with the 7.1 12km from my home was bad enough.

S-wave action can be just as damaging as the violent P-wave - although you'll need another bod to tell you the effects on apartments etc

Previously unreported report, by the same guy who said 5.6 was on known fault, about fracking in OK.

The question to ask is - Was there any seismic activity prior to fracking? The answer is yes. So I personally don't believe it is the cause of large events.. but that's just my bag


Largest previous quake in Oklahoma was 5.5 in the 1950's - were they fracking then?

See this post I recently made in this thread regarding a report published by University of Illinois about the impact of a sizable quake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone.

Not a pleasant bed time story, I tell you what.

 


ETA: The USGS felt report page has an interesting bit up for this quake:


Due to the large number of responses for this event the sortable table usually found here is not a usable solution


Wow.

November 9 is the National Emergency Alert System Test.What is the time difference between 4.7 and 5.6 Oklahoma?What is a Centroid Moment Magnitude?Just asking....Maybe before 9 Oct or after on 11.11.2011

HAARP just cranked the juice up by the looks of it. Third time I've seen this.



Magnitude 2.9 - SOUTHERN ALASKA
2011 November 06 07:20:52 UTC - 60.152°N, 152.783°W
Depth 104.1 km (64.7 miles)

Magnitude 5.2 - ALASKA PENINSULA
2011 November 06 08:08:15 UTC - 54.308°N, 162.786°W
Depth 39.2 km (24.4 miles)

Magnitude 1.6 - SOUTHERN YUKON TERRITORY, CANADA
2011 November 06 09:14:17 UTC - 61.456°N, 140.647°W
Depth 0.2 km (~0.1 mile)

Just to post it.

Can anyone explain to me why quakes on rises and ridges along the Pacific/Atlantic always measure up to 10km in depth? I recorded it for a while but stopped assuming 10km was a "rough" estimate kind of deal. They're always between 4.4 and 5.4 though.

4.9 - Central Mid Atlantic Ridge - (10)km, Sept 16th @ 6:43am
5.0 - Central East Pacific Rise - (10)km, 20th @ 2:40am
5.2 - South Mid Atlantic Ridge - (10)km, 20th @ 6:05am
4.8 - West Chile Rise, (10)km Depth, 24th @ 1:26pm
4.9 - Northern Mid Atlantic Ridge - (10)km, 25th @ 9:05pm

Magnitude 4.4 - CARLSBERG RIDGE
2011 October 30 16:16:02 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)

Magnitude 5.0 - GULF OF ADEN
2011 October 31 01:22:05 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)

Magnitude 5.1 - SOUTHERN EAST PACIFIC RISE
2011 October 31 04:45:43 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)

Magnitude 4.8 - WESTERN INDIAN-ANTARCTIC RIDGE
2011 November 01 01:52:13 UTC
Depth 10.0 km (6.2 miles)

Magnitude 4.3 - CENTRAL MEDITERRANEAN SEA
2011 November 01 09:21:37 UTC
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles)

Or like, when they come in surges distances apart.

4.0 Oklahoma,those are not aftershocks but foreshocks just like in Japan!!!

@Robin:

I could not find your thread quickly but I just came across this:

Arkansas Geothermal Documents


Published: Tuesday, October 11, 2011 | XML Metadata
This spreadsheet is a compilation of Well header information compiled by the Arkansas Geological Survey, published as a Web feature service for the National Geothermal Data System. The document...


Looks right up to date.

There is also one for well borehole temperatures.

I have not looked at these as I am researching something else but I could not pass them by without noting them.

No it did not. You can not make that assumption That is not a recording of HAARP output but of the whole radio frequency spectrum.

That is monitor of the incoming frequencies which may or may not include HAARP but you would never know what frequency the heaters were putting out.


What is a Spectrum Monitor?

A Spectrum Monitor is an instrument used to observe radio signals occupying a range of frequencies in the background electromagnetic environment. The signals originate from transmitters that are operated by users of the radio frequency spectrum including, for example, AM and FM broadcasts and air to ground communications.

A Spectrum Monitor may also be used to monitor the frequency signature of one's own transmitter, especially for the purpose of minimizing the potential for interfering with other users of the electromagnetic spectrum.
