PuterMan firstly I'd like to thank you for your passion and awarness when it concerns this fragile egg we live on.
I have been along time lurker of ATS but don't post much.
I have a bit of a query. I have been looking on www.iris.edu/seismon/ site on an almost daily basis for over two years now and have noticed over the last say three weeks the lack of earthquake reports.


Has there been a lack of reportable activity over recent weeks and or have you noticed a drop off over this time period?



Hey there Puterman ... even though I very rarely post on the earthquake / yellowstone / volcano threads I always follow what's going on and the information that you and a handful of other members provide is an outstanding contribution to ATS in general and the members who like to know what mother nature is up to in particular ... I am a big fan.

I also check the site that etrex66 mentioned including the world map graphic, several times a day (also for the last couple of years) and I don't recall ever seeing as many quiet days as there have been in the last couple of weeks ... usually there are a minimum of 4-6 minor quakes marked up on the map at any given time ... it's a little unnerving to be honest ... what's the reason do you think ... or is it just one of those things that has no explanation ?

Edit Now it's a 6M.

earthquake.usgs.gov...


And a little earlier there was a 4.2M in the same area which must be considered a foreshock. It was there.

Had to edit. There's been a 5.1M aftershock as well.

lol and its sunday over there
must be all the tension from not having a quake earlier this month..

J/K but with all the quake watching and volcano I hope we dont use our global consciousness to create a big disaster, so many people talking or waiting for one it makes me uneasy.

I came here to post about the 6.o & 5.1 in northern Italy, but I see it's already covered
My question is, would those quakes be considered big for that area? I was so surprised to see quakes of that size there, especially 2, back-to-back, even though they have a rich seismic history. I'm just not used to seeing something of that size (orig. 6.3), so I had to wonder.

Milano - Another shaking. 4th floor.just moved to Italy, never experienced this before.
South Lake Garda - Felt bed shaking intensely, the wardrobe and ceiling lamps were moving.

Trento, Italy - 3rd floor of apt. building
Florence, Italy - Woke my husand and I out of a sound sleep at 0400.
ITALY - Woke everyone up. Closet doors rattling and car alarms going off.
Parma - The shaking last more than 15 seconds and wake up everybody from the beginning. No fallen objects. (2nd floor)
Venice - On holiday in Venice, from the UK. Just got woken up by bed shaking and very scary noises. Hoping that was it....us Brits are not used to it!!

milan, 6th floor - woke me up from sleep
Forlì - I'm sleeping
Bologna - Strong enough to wake me and my wife and to cause some little light objects to fall.
Zermatt Switzerland - 4am Shook me out of bed and dresser handles rattled pretty good.
Milano - Woke up for shaking
S.Maria di Sala, Venice,Italy - 4.03am The noise and vibration woke me & my husband from a deep sleep. (2nd floor) Not as violent as I've felt on previous occasions but very pronounced and prolongued swaying sensation - maybe 10 or 15 seconds. Furniture creaking, crockery rattling, dogs barking. Scary.
Reggio Emilia - Down from bed!!!
Lugano - 10-15 sec of shake. Wake off on 5th floor.
ITALY - Woke up to building shaking. No sounds outside, many slept through it. A series of tremors afterwards, one about 29 minutes ago. I am in Venice, Italy.
Milan - Awakened by swaying. Heard hangers knocking in the closet.
BOLOGNA - wake up
Arzignano (VI) - 4.05am woke to moderate shaking followed by at least 2 smaller after-shocks
Udine - Woke at 4am to the 4th floor hotel bed swaying like someone trying to wake me...it worked!

Pretty well guaranteed there will be structural damage, what with the stone houses and MM7 Intensity in two places according to USGS, Cento and Stienta

Big quake just hit Christchurch seconds ago!

Was 4.63 mag
In the water 8.1 KM from Scarborough
Distance The distance from Cathedral Square is 19.5 km

Details

So that's 3 quakes around 4 mag today, with each one getting BIGGER than the last!

Emilia-Romagna, Italy Quake
I notice USGS say ± 10.7 km for their location, that would be about right, 10.37km SW of where INGV have it.

Bet that made a few people jump, officially a 4.821ML

usual confusion on USGS (but at least they posted it)
mb = 4.1 ( 1) ML = 4.6 ( 40) mblg = 4.2 ( 18) md = 4.5 ( 6)
4.8ML on the details page, but 4.6 on the phase data

I just saw that it had been upgraded to 4.82 so thanks for updating.

Gotta admit that I ended up running to the door-frame for that one! lol

Also first quake for a longtime that things started falling over around the house.

Haven't liked seeing the uptick today and steady increase in mag size.

GEEZ, just had another strong tremor a couple of minutes after posting the above

Wonder what the next 12 hours will bring?

Powerful quake kills 5 in Italy




Rome (CNN) -- A strong earthquake struck early Sunday in northern Italy, leaving at least five people dead, authorities said.

Two people were killed in a ceramic factory in Sant'Agostino di Ferrara, and one person died when a work shed collapsed in Ponte Rodoni di Bondeno...
In addition, a woman in Bologna died of a heart attack during an evacuation, Maffani said.
At least 50 people were injured. Workers were searching through rubble for survivors in Sant'Agostino. Source

Damage to the town hall of Sant' Agostino


ROME (AP) – One of the strongest earthquakes to shake northern Italy rattled the region around Bologna early Sunday, a magnitude-6.0 temblor that killed at least three people, toppled some buildings and sent residents running into the streets, emergency services and news reports said.

The quake struck at 4:04 a.m. Sunday between Modena and Mantova, about 35 kilometers (22 miles) north-northwest of Bologna Source



At least three people have died in a strong earthquake that rocked northern Italy on Sunday morning.

The quake struck at 4am local time (2am GMT) and had a magnitude of 5.9. It was centred in the plains near Modena and felt throughout nearby regions.

One person working a night shift died in the collapse of a factory and two others were killed in another building. Rescue officials were checking reports that other people were buried under rubble.

Thousands of people rushed into the streets after the quake, felt in the major towns of Bologna, Modena, Ferrara, Rovigo, Verona and Mantua.

There has been serious damage to historic buildings and rural structures. Parts of a historic fortress in one town collapsed and rural factories fell down. Source

If you go back a page, I mentioned that area off Japan after the 5.9 struck in the spot that has been steadily pushing out 4s as of the past 48hrs. The 6.0 atop the same area just further goes to show that this area could, not saying it will, but could push out a 7-8 soon.

I'll bite my tongue and hope this is not the case.

The eclipse should be interesting. Not that I expect a solar eclipse to trigger mayhem over Gaia.

Seems half of these days of "anticipation" never work out, or work out a little too well.


A 5.3 aftershock of the 6 (I assume) just occurred in the spot of the 4.7 on the 18th.

Yes indeed, that was big for that area, in fact the biggest since 1974 according to the USGS circular search based on a 100 km radius.
