Yeah I have been watching the live quake map recently out of interest, and about 5 minutes ago when I went on it today I noticed a real increase in little quakes in the west coast area, compared with previous days. It was why I came to the forum to see if anyone has posted. So clearly there is a short term increase in small insignificant quakes. The question is, is it a prelude to something a little bigger? Something we need to monitor.

I have also been feeling that the next big one will be in the greece area. They havent shown any of the quakes on usgs over there for the last few days. They finally posed one on there today though. ROSE has been showing them the whole time. But it could be anywhere.

Well I dont know if it is related at all, but I can say that I feel bad. Not quite as bad as I did the day before the Japan quake, but all day long I have felt a "doom" sort of feeling.

It is a similar feeling to the feeling I had before the Japan quake, just less extreme. Could just be all the other crap going on in the world, but I rarely feel bad like this for entire days. And honestly this "type" of feeling isnt common for me at all. So, who knows. Just adding my possibly irrelevant input.

Edit to add, and I like this map, you have to click on the Earthquake icon, but the way the map is set up you can get an instant visual feel for size, and time frame of the quakes.

Greece has been active for along time now. This just started up like this almost out of nowhere

Anybody notice the 'Nuclear Event' in Toronto? I know its only a water leak, but I am discomforted every time I see another Nuke symbol pop up on that map! We now see how important core cooling is!!!

While your observation about 2.0 quakes is a bit off...the fact that the west coast is primed to be hit by something major is spot on.

As to those 2.0 quakes. Three of them today were in Washington State....Mount Saint Helens to be exact. This is not all that unusuall and she had a bit of a swerm last month. Here is the list from today:

MAP 2.2 2011/03/16 15:58:23 46.215 -122.217 8.4 3 km ( 2 mi) WNW of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA
MAP 2.2 2011/03/16 14:56:37 46.257 -122.057 11.7 11 km ( 7 mi) NE of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA
MAP 2.2 2011/03/16 10:37:25 46.091 -122.025 8.0 17 km ( 11 mi) SE of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA

Actually, what has my attention more at the moment, are the very little ones in puget sound the olympic peninsula:
MAP 1.5 2011/03/15 22:02:22 48.446 -122.869 14.7 16 km ( 10 mi) SE of Friday Harbor, WA
MAP 1.5 2011/03/14 21:45:09 47.287 -123.949 15.3 6 km ( 4 mi) NNE of Humptulips, WA
MAP 1.9 2011/03/14 21:08:28 47.284 -123.901 11.4 8 km ( 5 mi) NE of Humptulips, WA
MAP 1.7 2011/03/13 06:47:12 46.596 -124.388 44.3 28 km ( 18 mi) WNW of Ocean Park, WA

These are above the suspected location of the subduction zone. I don't like the deep one. Yes, they are tiny but a bit unusuall. If we see these increase, it warrants more attention.


Here is a great interactive map that will show all the small ones:

Why do you think the ones around the Sound are more important?

posted on Mar, 16 2011 @ 05:28 PM
There was just another 2.8 in northern Cal

Washington gets quakes in the R2 - R3 range all the time.

As I posted in another thread:
5.3 Quake in Valparaiso, Chile...
View details
Seems the whole pacific plate is responding to the tension... Let's hope that tension is released in a low-populated area, but seeing that "triple-frontier" near the south of japan...
It makes me shiver... Let's see how things turn out...

I know this is about US west coast but Chile is the south corner of the "ring of fire" and if it gets freaky down here again, it has to influence the northern border of the plate...

More Earthquakes 7.0 Or Above Predicted For Japan Within Next 3 Days Per CNN/Scientists

I'm thinking antipodal in addition to another major Japan quake. I'm thinking near Argentina within three days. There. I went and made a prediction...

I feel the moons approach to perigee causes just as much if not more disturbance that when it actually reaches perigee. and the opposite effect puling as the moon leaves perigee.

perigee is expected on the 19th.

That would be somewhere off the East Coast of Argentina:

Crap, I live in Buenos Aires so I hope your calculations aren't correct or else i'll have to start taking swimming classes...

AND a 5.4 SE of Argentina:

Thursday March 17 2011, 01:00:08 UTC 2 hours ago South Sandwich Islands region 5.4 85.8

I certainly wouldn't say we get them all the time. If you were to go back and look at say a years worth of seismic activity here, you would find that most of the 2 or 3 mag quakes are on or near our volcanos. If we have a mag 3 quake anywhere else, it gets our attention, especially if it is in the sound.

This is all about what and where and how deep, which determines which fault it is on. We have several different options in our state, you see. We have volcanos, the seismic zone for helens, the shallow plate fault system near Seattle, the juan de fuca off our shore and the ever omnipresent subduction zone.

When I start seeing those deeper quakes out near the subduction zone, I start paying more attention. It is capable of producing a 9.5 quake....much bigger than what just happened in Japan. Are YOU prepared?

Are we safe?

Is the activity in the West Coast back to normal again?

I havent had any doom feelings today at all, not that that means anything, my doom feelings yesterday didnt end in disaster, but it did seem to be an active day. Anything in the ring of fire world we need to worry about at the moment?

With all these major earthquakes happening between NZ and Japan, it won't surprise me if mount vesuvias erupts again soon enough.

Interesting Activity going on indeed.

posted on Mar, 18 2011 @ 06:36 PM
I agree, tons of activity going on at the minute. This is the first time I've seen an earthquake in the Mid Atlantic in almost six months of checking out the RSOE site:


There also seems to have been loads more volcanic activity over the past couple of days. Things certainly seem to be moving and shaking all over the world at the minute.
