I thought it was generally agreed that there are pools of magma under the entire Ring of Fire, across the whole planet. I have felt several earthquakes but the last one here in West Texas was so very slow I thought I was having a stroke.

Thank you for the appreciation! Of the two volcanoes I have to say that I like Adams best . . . even though Hood is a more perfect cone. I would guess the preference is do to spending more time up on Adams; my longest stretch being nearly a month at the 8,600 ft level . . . not to mention the fact that Adams is a bit safer and less likely to burn you.

I'm not as "familiar" with Mt. Adams, so that is very good to know. I should be, I mean I live fairly close, but I have always been drawn more to St. Helens, Hood, Rainier and the "Sisters" Mountains.

So, was checking into some things and found this out:
We all know about the China 9.9 of course, but apparently in the last few weeks EQ's have struck Italy, Loyalty Islands (Vanuatu), the West Coast of the United States and some mild activity in Texas...
Does anyone know if any of these events are tied together or related? Supposedly there is a Tsunami warning for Washington State coastline today due to a 7.1 off the Loyalty Islands ....
Wish I knew how to add a link or something...
Lemme know what you find out...I am eager and curious to know other thoughts on this...

WOW....235 deep tremors clustered in Southern Oregon yesterday (5/17/11). We have had a few days now of everything being south. I am expecting a moderate sized quake up here at the Northern end....probably sometime today. When I say moderate, I mean from 3.0 to 5.0.

Tremor map

Back on the 15th there were 123 in the same area....I almost posted that evening the same thing. (that I expected a quake to the North). I should have
...there was a 4.5 in Queen Charlotte the next day. A bit far Norht....but I believe that from Vancvouver Island to Alaska is more connected than is generally believed.


4.5 (Preliminary magnitude — update expected within 15 minutes)

Okay.....seeing as how I made what would equate to a prediction, but then went back and edited the heck out of the post
, I will write it again here, unedited.

I believe, based on the deep tremors and quake patterns for the past couple of days that there will be a moderate sized quake in either NW Washington Or the Vancouver Island region (slightly inland or just off-shore either area).

By moderate, I mean in the 3.0 - 5.0 range.

This isn't anything big enough for concern, but I am trying to determine if I am reading this pattern and trending correctly....hence the documentation.

Seeing abnormal activity again on a few of the NW webicorders. Here is one out of Portland, OR

USGS Webicorder

Wonder what this activity is? You can see the same activity throughout the area.

A lot of that looks like high winds, which indeed will show up on seismograms, high surf will show up as well.

Checked that already. Winds were calm to light for the period and area in question.

Also checked various other reporting stations in the area and many showed similar activity.

So we didn't have the quake yesterday so I was hoping to see a cluster of deep tremors up here today to relieve some of the pressure.

We what DID have was a very odd pattern. There is again a HUGE swarm of deep tremors back down south, and then this odd splattering of them all over the peninsula. You won't know what I am talking about (regarding the oddness) if you haven't been looking at these for awhile...but this is wierd.

Hmmmm......still thinking this has got to balance out soon. I will be keeping an eye on the sound tomorrow. (puget sound)

Howdy WestCoast and everyone else!

One of our local news stations here in Salt Lake City just did a news report on Yellowstone that blew my mind. I just posted about it in the Yellowstone thread and thought you might be interested. Especially because I believe it relates to WC's theory in the OP of this thread!

And yes, that whole bit about the plume being an 'upside down tornado' extending under Montana, Idaho and Oregon is just what I am talking about...or at least, it ties into it.

Thanks for that link!

Also, I am a little stressed to see that the deep tremors continue to be isolated. 235 of them down south yesterday, and no answering release to the North. The longer it goes on, the greater the chance of a larger quake up here, I feel.

Is this quake something we should be concerned about?

reply to post by westcoast

It is interesting that if you look at the quakes off SF and then the ones off the Oregon coast they are all within a couple hours of each other and fairly shallow depth . . . cause and effect?

posted on May, 22 2011 @ 03:14 PM
I wouldn't say these are anything to be concerned about, but rather expected. These fall into the pattern that I have been talking about. I would rather see several moderate sized quakes vs. one big one. Now if there is an increase in magnitude and number of quakes it would be more concerning. As of now though, it is what I would expect to see with the previous pattern:

MAP 3.1 2011/05/22 10:10:19 43.390 -127.038 10.0 215 km (133 mi) W of Bandon, OR
MAP 1.9 2011/05/22 08:16:23 47.593 -122.005 9.9 3 km ( 2 mi) ESE of Sammamish, WA
MAP 4.6 2011/05/22 07:21:37 43.494 -127.054 10.1 218 km (135 mi) WNW of Bandon, OR
MAP 2.0 2011/05/22 06:50:33 45.704 -122.483 14.6 4 km ( 3 mi) ENE of Orchards, WA
MAP 2.2 2011/05/21 23:30:30 46.228 -122.125 11.6 5 km ( 3 mi) NE of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA


As to the quakes off the North coast of California, although these are occuring on a diferent fault line, just to look at the map you can see they are all inter-connected. While they can certainly have movement independent of each other, I would again say that these are all falling into an expected pattern of release. Same goes for that on the look-out of increasing mag and well as inland on the Cali/Nevada border, the gulf of California and up here in the Puget Sound area. Might happen today, might happen in 20 yrs or 100!!

posted on May, 29 2011 @ 01:28 AM
Given the recent deep tremor clusters up in Vanouver the past few days (246 today) I expect to see something 'answering' it soon if it doesn't balance out with the tremors.

Given that California is already having off-shore quakes on the fault lines in Northern Cali....I will wager it'll be something bigger in the 5.0 range. Either Northern Cali or Southern Oregon...(probably just off shore or near shore)

Oops...forgot the link showing the tremors for today!

I know it's been a couple of weeks...but the same principle applies:

MAP 4.8 2011/06/18 10:49:11 41.826 -126.880 10.1 213 km (132 mi) WSW of Gold Beach, OR
MAP 4.2 2011/06/18 02:41:16 41.882 -126.782 10.0 204 km (126 mi) WSW of Gold Beach, OR

USGS source

Note the location and depth of the quakes (just off-shore Northern california on the edge of the plate and only 10km deep) Also, this past week the deep tremors are clustered just South of Portland, OR and the Southern tip of Vancouver Island.

I think we will see some could possilby be a build up. Not that it is that odd to see these in this location, but it doesn't happen all the time at this size and depth. Call it a hunch.

Okay, this is a bit more interesting now. I went ahead and pulled up some of the nearest seismos in Northern California and this is what I found:

Northern Cali seismo

So the time in question is at 10:49 UTC on 6/18 This site gives you the option to go back and move ahead in the days, so this link should stay valid for awhile.

When I first saw this, I thought that must have been some sort of interference on the seismo. However, it showed up on several others near it so I compared the times to the 4.8 quake and it matches up. This sig is NOT normal. It lasted for over 15 min and is just plain wierd. I am not versed enough to say anything fancy about it. Anyone care to take a jab?
