6.6 Ms = 7.33 Mw


I wonder if they have that right?

Not sure, the Russians haven't posted it yet, they should do a Ms for something that size for comparison

Whooops, nevermind, I got beat to the punch.

I hope everyone is alright it seems pretty shallow and there are some densely populated areas in that region.

Dushanzi 62 miles from the center is a district within the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China and is under the administrative jurisdiction of the Karamay City. It contains an area of 400 km2. According to the 2002 census, it has a population of 60,000.

Where are the 7s?

I posted a while back that this year would be a very calm year of 16 or less 7 plus EQs....seems to be going that way...

Hey fellow quake watchers!!!! Im still using this stupid iphone until my laptop is fixed!

Getting better with the typing but frankly I still suck. Im almost 40 too so ya know my eyes are not seeing this itty bitty screen that good either! Ugh! I wanna be young forever... But... Oh well. Lol life goes on!

Life in Southern Cali today was odd!! Anyone hear about all the people who reported on Earthquakereport.com regarding the "2.6" eq? They reported a loud boom ( confirmed was not a sonic boom) and strong jolt/ shaking that only lasted seconds? earthquake-report.com...

Haven't heard or felt anything in my part of So.Cal. Well, I live next to an Air Force base so I've grown accustomed to the booming after 21 years.

Edit: In my personal experiences I have NEVER heard any sort of boom accompanying an earthquake. I can't figure out why people make that connection. The only thing I've heard is the windows and doors rattling and rolling. During Northridge it sounded like my house had suddenly turned into a train!

why is it important?
its already been downgraded to a 4.0

now these are important!

4.9 2012/06/30 00:14:47 -33.530 -176.531 33.6 SOUTH OF THE KERMADEC ISLANDS
4.8 2012/06/29 22:37:05 -33.358 -178.238 17.7 SOUTH OF THE KERMADEC ISLANDS
4.7 2012/06/29 22:02:17 -33.682 178.772 49.8 SOUTH OF THE KERMADEC ISLANDS

why?
because they are near me

edit on 29-6-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

just pulling your leg, of course yours is as important, all individual earthquakes are important, to release stress energy, lets hope you have a few more that size that far out, rather than nothing happening at all (a bad sign)

It's definitely strange that there were so many reports coming in, especially considering all I can find on USGS at that specific time is this little 1.7 near the Cajon Pass.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

The incident got a blurb from a local news website posted about 3 hours later.
www.kesq.com...

The reports were coming from places that shouldn't have been able to feel that 1.7 given the location and size. It's a good 100 miles from San Diego. There's been some larger quakes before and after this particular incident that nobody made a fuss about. I don't know what it was, but whether it was a 1.7 or a 2.6, it shouldn't have caused any booming or "strong jolts" in the reported areas. This is Southern California, the earth's crust is so fractured and squishy here that most of us don't notice anything below a 4 pointer. I know people accuse USGS of deleting legit quakes for no reason, but I think this was something else.

On a semi-related note, I did hear several booms earlier tonight. The kids have pulled out their 4th of July firecrackers early.

The last update as to what the sound may have been kinda makes me go hmmmmmm....



Update : A scientist has good reasons that it was a “skyquake” a military generated Atmospheric tremor. It is normally exercised 50 miles in the Pacific and it is normally not felt or heard on the coast. Favorable winds can take the sound and coupled shaking however to the coast.[/ex


emphasis mine
What would be the purpose of such a military generated tremor?

El Hierro continues, but at a slightly slower pace.

El Hierro group KMZ file for Google Earth

or view in Google Maps

That is split by day so you can turn days on and off to see what is happening.

As usual full details and updates at my El Hierro blog post

Rift zones when they pull apart often cause "booms", distinctive from the noises that slips, subductive or compressive quakes make. Heard one myself last November when there was a little one at the western end of Lake Ontario that made I distinctive boom that I thought at first had been a large nearby car accident but turned out to be the small quake.

This looks like it may be the culprit!

andstillipersist.com...




The DoD has begun to discuss high level elements of a project to build a hypersonic UAV system, currently working under the name Falcon Blackswift.



One of the most recognizable traits of this platform would be a “skyquake”, an unusual tremor that had many of the same effects as the earthquakes we have all over California.



Windows would shake, lights would sway and there would be a distinct low frequency sound that would spook animals.


That all sounds a lot like what happened yesterday, within the same area. This article may be a few years old and I have no idea how accurate this guy's information is. My dad actually works for NASA and does some QA over there at Skunk Works. I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to ask him about what he does however, so I don't. They don't like to talk.

Your Dad works at NASA and you haven't started any thought provoking threads? Do you have any interesting suppositions? Maybe you could ply him with alcohol one night...........

Haha, he's not much of a talker, or a drinker! He leaves work at work and I don't know much about what he does. I just know he was moved out to Plant 42 from Edwards in the last few years on some kind of contract with Northrop Grumann I believe. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears for him to get that job while we were barely making it and I guess I'm scared to get him in trouble by asking too many questions!

Yeah, I've been watching that all afternoon. Actually felt the SC one even over here near Charlotte, NC. I was the only one home sitting at my desk and my chair did a nice little dance on its own
. Immediately checked ye ol' trusty helicorders and kowabunga batman it wasn't just the Bird and Kings Mt. stations jiggling this time.

I kept watching to see if and/or when USGS would notice. I much prefer CERI's map here.

BTW, when TS Debby blew thru I noticed the helis all over the South-eastern seaboard were just a wiggling and jiggling to beat the band so I thought it has to be storm related, but just didn't understand how something that far off shore from us could affect helis way up in the piedmont. Got to snooping and found this wonderful doc from CERI with pics of helis as Hurricane Katrina buzzed thru. 'splained it all Lucy, all neat and tidy, puzzle solved. Amazing, just amazing.


as the storm moved onto the shallow continental shelf the shoreward winds east of the eye piled additional water onto the coast. All of these processes generated microseisms that traveled as sound vibrations through Earth's solid crust to the shore, and were recorded at seismograph stations.


Now I'm wondering if all these micro-quakes here in the SE are a direct result of the continental shelf's recent beating from 'lil Debby or something else altogether. Hmm?
