Only seconds apparently. Must have felt it coming. One friend's dog ran from loung to under bed then it started.

It looks like somewhere in SW Oregon just got a decent earthquake

This PB.B031.

Here is a better look-- PB.B033.EHZ

Maybe I'm losing it. I still don't see a listing at PNSN or USGS, but this snapshot of the entire PNW shows something...

ahh, here it is Mag 5.1 offshore Bandon, Oregon

Next event south of Oregon?

posted on Jun, 19 2012 @ 03:13 PM
GeoNetRapid- Probably of little interest to most, but some hits on the page over the last few days

I've gone back over the 18thUTC and noted those quakes that were later confirmed on the main database
The ones that were confirmed have a new "tick" icon
I've used the timing to match them, the Ref No.s are different format anyway.
Will have to reset my main NZ Earthquakes KML popup tags to read seconds by one decimal point, because on the Geonet Rapid there are often 2 entries that are that close (point of a sec)

12/43 confirmed within 24 hrs

I see USGS has re-reviewed todays earthquake offshore Oregon and decided it was a Mag 5.2 (mb scale).

Professor Ekstrom at LDEO has it at Mag 5.4

2012 6 19 13 41 4.0 43.50 -127.50 33.0 5.4 OFF COAST OF OREGON

It looks to be located on the Blanco Fracture Zone and was probably a strike-slip type event. No worries about the megathrust just yet...

Activity worldwide seems to have picked up a bit.

NO quakes being reported anywhere around Italy, Turkey, Iraq, Greece region? (on

Seems rather unusual, as have never noticed there never being dozens of quakes showing daily for that region.

Maybe a glitch in recordings?

Most likely the glitch is in the global incident map website somewhere, as they are still being reported on EMSC.

I find it's better to get the info direct from the primary agencies. That global incident map site is not as reliable.


edit on 20/6/12 by JustMike because: added list of some quakes from EMSC

posted on Jun, 20 2012 @ 01:28 AM
Yeah could be something wrong with the EMSC feed.
A couple of hours ago I went to the EMSC page I have saved on Speed Dial which is set to 5+ magnitude, but it was showing 4+ on the first page. I flicked the "page 2" tab to find some stuff for the 18th and it went straight to 6th June. Couldn't get it to load anything in between so I gave up and used Geofon instead.
A lot of the EMSC feeds come from Geofon anyway.

One reason I don't use EMSC much, is when you are looking at NOA (Greece) and KOERI (Turkey) on a regular basis and then compare what they have to what EMSC have, hardly anything matches time or magnitude wise.
Try comparing the NOA to KOERI data for the Eastern Aegean Sea side is even worse

reply to post by muzzy

Hi Muzzy,

I wonder if this is a regional problem with the feed? For example, I've had no problems accessing the EMSC pages, but I'm in Europe so I suppose the routing is a bit more direct. (I could be supposing wrongly, of course.
Do people geographically closer usually get a more "direct" line of feed?)

Regarding what you said about your EMSC page display, my 5+ magnitude (worldwide) display shows 50 events per page and so page 1 currently goes back as far as some of the quakes from June 7th. As yours is so different -- or was at that time you mentioned -- it strongly suggests feed problems.

In any case I take your point about discrepancies between the various reporting sites. I suppose it ultimately comes down to whom we individually consider the most accurate for a given region.

Best regards,

Seems to be working OK this morning (NZST)
What you described re the first page.
Not sure what happened there, seems they substituted Mag4+ page for Mag 5+ page, so there were more entries of course, taking it into more than the first page.

Big traces on SNZO

getting hammered from each end

edit on 21-6-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

LDEO have a different opinion on the S of Kermy ones

2012 6 22 2 20 8.0 -33.25 -178.25 33.0 5.6 SOUTH OF KERMADEC ISLANDS
2012 6 22 0 3 4.0 -32.75 -178.25 33.0 5.3 SOUTH OF KERMADEC ISLANDS
2012 6 21 23 52 56.0 -32.75 -178.25 33.0 5.4 SOUTH OF KERMADEC ISLANDS

kind of hard to tell where on the 00 line that 2nd one starts, because the 1st one is still doing its thing, according to the TTCalculator the Sn wave hit SNZO at 00:07:22, not sure what the "n" stands for, quakes from this area never have clean P or S wave results, often I use the PcP wave if it is a smaller one.
Judging by the size of the signals after 00:07:22, I'd say LDEO are right, thats way too big for a lousy 4.8

I get your point but why not Midgard since Iceland is more of less where the name came from?

Midgard (an anglicised form of Old Norse Miðgarðr; Old English Middangeard, Old High German Mittilagart, literally "middle enclosure") is the name for the world (in the sense of oikoumene) inhabited by and known to humans in early Germanic cosmology, and specifically one of the Nine Worlds and in Norse mythology.


I am more interested in your source however as I don't recognise the layout and terminology.

Magnitude ML 3.3

so its real,, 3.9 orig,, now 3.3 i see,, and gone into history

I don't agree with the magnitudes (too low) but for once USGS may have it right regarding the order

4.8 2012/06/22 12:30:19 -30.363 -175.593 9.6 KERMADEC ISLANDS REGION
4.9 2012/06/22 12:12:50 -33.060 -178.246 14.6 SOUTH OF THE KERMADEC ISLANDS

compared with Geofon

5.2 2012-06-22 12:30:19 30.63°S 175.47°W 10 M Kermadec Islands Region
5.0 2012-06-22 12:12:56 33.16°S 178.64°W 31 M South of Kermadec Islands

if you look on the SNZO graph on the 12:00 line the 2nd one (timewise) is quite obviously smaller than the 1st, even given the 2nd on is out on the Pacific Plate and further away than in the Kerm subduction zone where all the other quakes were.
Busy 12 hours, I crashed my image editing programme 5 times marking up the graph, too many colours

2 still unidentified, Southern Ocean judging by the shape of the wiggles

I used Sn wave arrival times for all the Kermadec ones, to be consistant, that wave corresponds with each trace quite well. No P waves shown on LISS SNZO, too close maybe?

There was a similar swarm back on 13/02/2102, lower magnitudes there, but you can still compare what a 5.0, or 4.8 looks like, thats why I say USGS's mags are too low yesterday

Macquarie at 5.9 looks about right compared with MacIs 5.8 on 09/02/2012
