Could the 6.4 quake (9/9/11) in Vancouver be a foreshock to a mega quake?

alright I tried contacting Natural Resources Canada through their web site. im not sure if it will be successful or not.

i basically asked them why the 6.4 van island aftershocks are not on the recent earthquakes map and list.

i supplied the news article where John Cassidy (Natural Resources Canada) reports the 4.9 aftershock and dozens more that are occurred

we'll have to wait and see, im sure their office is quite busy and its the weekend....

Thank you for your reply. I understand some geology, having taken numerous courses in high school and in college, but I don't fully comprehend the data or grasp the intensity of each quake.

In regards to the mega quake in Japan, does anyone know if that quake woke up any of Japan's volcanoes? I remember reading about Mt. Fuji, but I didn't hear of any serious eruption.

I do know that we are not living on a lahar. (We're more near Parkland). However I know it will be chaotic should an earthquake rock the sound. It would be a nightmare if the volcanoes blew.

We've only lived in western Washington for a few years, do you or anyone else know if there ever was a drill to simulate a mass evacuation of this region? We have our own escape plans should a disaster hit, but until now I've never consider everyone in the region trying to leave at the same time.

Have mercy....are all these just today?!
Is that normal for the west coast?

Okay you guys....I have huge P waves coming in on a seismo in NW Washington and at the same time lost my feed for vancouver.....USGS is 20 minutes behind on its reporting.

Anyone know where it's coming from???

ETA: looks like all the stations out on the island stopped broadcasting about 10-15 minutes ago. Same time the P waves showed up on other, further-away ones. Probably a coincidence...I didn't feel anything here.

Well as I see it as a former BC girl myself, we always had a saying "Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, are beyond Hope!"

Seriously, take care guys! This is not a year where you could pay me enough to be in any coastal/ fault zone. I have maintained for a few years now that the Earth will one day shake off the parasite that is mankind and it will be ugly... anyone seeing a trend here?

hi there, can you point me to where you view your live seismos? The ones on the Canadian webpage don't seem to work very well.

Well there is definite something going on but I dont know how to tell how intense these are:

I am not seeing anything on USGS today, but have felt slight shaking at different intervals in Southeastern Washington since last night. I am also feeling extremely anxious without any apparent reason. Good luck to all on the coast!!!!

By the way, I have lived here for over 30 years and can't ever recall having felt any sort of tremor before last week when the recorded 3.7 hit.

Shows you what I know! Thanks for the reply.

Looking at some of the earthquake predictions sites (based on MOON), there are some interesting possible LARGE quakes due around the 18th to 22nd:

GREECE: M5.0-M7.0
expected about Sept 19+/-3 days
(posted 2400 hours 3rd Sept)

JAPAN: (Honshu - Northern Region) M6.0-M8.0
expected about Sept 18+/-3 days
(posted 2400 hours 3rd Sept)

Lots of others ranging into the high 6's but those are two that we should watch for.

If the number of microns per second goes up that bad? I'm watching a very weird's all over the place and the microns per second shot way up. 'm just trying to learn this.

A member just started a thread
showing the LA seismo as there is
a lot of movement going on there now.
What are you looking at Kat, can
you see anything in the
LA area?

They said that temperature is rising in the Madrid area, akin to the temperatures rising in Japan prior to the big quake.

Here in the lower mainland, its overhwelmingly hot suddenly. All our fans are on. We were having a lovely late summer, not like last years rains, nice warm days, but only one fan on, and not all of the time.

This is a heat swell and humid heat too, the kind I don't like at all. Not lovely dry Okanagan heat were 100 is fine with me.

I wonder if there will be two regions in danger here?

Not to mention their other 9/11 things. I wrote a thread up on what I think is a distraction in NYC, for the black out in the South West into Mexico, and 14 000 rounds of ammo missing too. Los Alamos and all that depleted uranium sitting in tents comes to mind as well.

So it could be more than two areas in danger.

I'm looking at GEE and Califronia had 2 small quakes, one in Santa Barbera, and the other I think was around Mammoth Lake.....the seismos in Washington look crazy, (diving into deep Vs etc) but I'm only just learning so it may be nothing.

I live in Seattle as well. When my Co-workers and I heard about it on the radio that day, I offered them a prediction (all for fun). $10.00 per-person for each one I got right. I had this gut feeling we were going to get a EQ in our region, it will be in the Cascadia Subduction zone, it will be 8.0 or higher, in 2011, in the month of September. I don't know why I thought that, but I told them I wanted to be on record if it miraculously happened.

I think you could put more money on the odds of those bastards not paying me if it did happen

Seems we are definitely getting
some swarms.

I live in Vancouver B.C. Though I did not feel the quake. I have been diligently going to the Natural Resources Canada earthquake site since about 1999. Since the Japan quake, I personally noted what I saw as an "upswing" in the amount of tremors and quakes on the West Coast here. Does it mean anything, I can't answer it, I don't believe it makes too much difference in leaning toward the "Big One" being unleashed, but I'm not a professional on the subject, just an amateur observer.
The main point about any size of Earthquake here is that it may "wake up" a few more people.
Unlike California, who have regular enough tremors to keep the citizens on their toes. This part of the Coast rarely has a quake that makes the news, maybe 3-4 times a year, a tremor here or perhaps a major disaster quake, will prompt the local news to run a redundant story of everyone here not being prepared, and even though this occurs, I don't think people here are any more aware of the "danger" we face living on the West Coast here.
