Bet this one shook things up a bit. 2 x 6.6 EQ's only 4 minutes apart?

quakes.globalincidentmap.com...

62 minutes ago
Magnitude: 6.6
DateTime: Thursday June 16 2011, 00:03:36 UTC
Region: New Britain region, Papua New Guinea
Depth: 21.5 km

61 minutes ago
Magnitude: 6.6
DateTime: Thursday June 16 2011, 00:03:40 UTC
Region: New Britain region, Papua New Guinea
Depth: 47.4 km

USGS is reporting only one so far. I tend to use both sites as sometimes a quake gets posted twice on www.globalincidentmap.com.... But to see that there is a 4 minute difference AND a depth difference, it looks odd Especially when quakes.globalincidentmap.com... uses a Feed from USGS. Strange.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Did you mean 2 6.6's @ 4 minutes apart?

Something is definitely brewing up on the Pacific Ring of Fire!

I wonder when will good ole Amerika get its share of earthquakes?

Didn't look like it was over PNG. But then again, just becuase I can't see the land on that map doesn't mean much.

Only one minute apart?
Could they possibly have been a single event just registered as two some how?
I hope everyone is OK.

I thought that at first but there are 2 different depths as well as the time. It's a wait and see at this point.

That is likely, however, the time is 4 minutes apart and the depth is off, so it -might- be two, but the longer time goes on the more we'll know for sure.

Also, I wonder if this has anything to do with the Lunar Eclipse.

I was thinking there would be an Earthquake either in off the East coast of Southern Africa, as shown here where the Lunar Eclipse was centered at:





Or somewhere on the OPPOSITE side of the Earth - the center would be just south of the West Coast of US, which you can see for yourself on any Antipodes map.

www.antipodemap.com...

Though, it's all just personal theory and I make no claim or prediction off my research.

I was slow to catch a 3 minute change on the site so yeah, it was 4 minutes, 2 different depths. This would seem to be 2 quakes.

Thanks

A strong earthquake struck early Thursday off an island in the Pacific nation of Papua New Guinea. No tsunami warning was issued, but the shaking was felt hundreds of miles (kilometers) away.The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude-6.6 quake struck just off the island of New Britain. It was at a depth of 13 miles (22 kilometers).
McKee said strong shaking was felt in Rabaul, a New Britain town about 250 miles (400 kilometers) away.The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a widespread tsunami. McKee said there had been no reports of any destructive waves.

Nowhere they say there were 2 quakes.
USGS reports only 1
But your link shows 2 with different depths
strange

Yeah, 2 quakes, different times and depths...and the info on quakes.globalincidentmap.com... is a USGS Feed from USGS!

I don't get it.

Still no news on the two 6.6 quakes. Guess its a mistake of some kind, media only reports 1 quake

Reports of a new just came in, this time 4.8mag

edit: you got me on that one

Yeah, still watching but no news on 2.

Wonder how that happened when the feed is from USGS? The 2 times I can understand and have seen it a few times...but the 2 depths is something I have never seen before.

Yes this happens frequently on the 'global incident map' like this one
Wednesday June 15 2011, 12:29:14 UTC 13 hours ago Baja California, Mexico 4.2 8.6
Wednesday June 15 2011, 12:29:14 UTC 13 hours ago Baja California, Mexico 4.2 8.6
but diff times and depths, never seen that


Found something interesting on deep sea mining in Papua New Guinea.
I recently read a paper that many quakes are the result from mining bussiness.
I dont think they already started there.
www.abc.net.au...
Its not on-topic, sorry for that, anyway i just wanted to share this

Perfectly on topic...and thanks for the info.

I guess we have to wait a bit to see just what happened.

Star!

I know that there a lot of people who view many of us earthquake watchers as doom and gloomers, but I think its just that America is often spared of major catastrophies. It has made us callous anytime something happens that is not here on our soil....

Eeirly, but true, some of us do feel a sense of 'Come on already..."

Anybody know what I'm saying??
