The pressure seems to me to be coming off in Alaska, bit early to call though. This could signal an end to the counter clockwise rotational moment and this could be the start of the rebound. I hope not!

There was just a fairly big quake somewhere...any idea on location? Mexico? It seems to show up in Georgia and Alabama first, then southern California.


Ah, I see it was a Mag 5.7 only 32 km SSE of Santiago, Peru.
I think we felt 2 quick jolts here in VA at about 23.40 utc--that's why I hopped on the compy and started looking around.
edit on 7/2/2012 by Olivine because: Peru, not Chile

Anybody watching the seismos over on El hierro?
I just posted this on volcano thread

This just posted within the last half hour by Jon Friman over on Erik Klemmetis website

"Jón Frímann Jónsson 1 comment collapsed Collapse Expand
It is just matter of hours to days at the longest before a fissure type of eruption starts in El Hierro volcano. Magma is now clearly forming a path to the surface. How long that is going to take depends on the crust. Something that is hard to impossible to predict. "

The earth quakes at El Hierro have certainly begun again in ernest over the past few hours. But the listed depth s are still 19-20 kms down.

I wonder what makes Mr. Frimann Jonsson believe an eruption in imminent (hours to days)?

I used to have Jon's website/blogg in my fav's...but lost it due to 'blue screen of death', and had to do a complete recovery on my laptop. I'll go google and see if I can find it again...if I don't fall asleep first!

Interesting how apart from one lonely quake out at Lon: -18.34340 all the quakes are east of the western tip of the island, I wonder if that is the western wall of the lava chamber.
Need to look back on the maps from 2011 to check......
volcanictremor.wordpress.com...

Its about time they got a new satellite image from 2km+, those clouds spoil the whole experience of viewing Google Maps when it comes to El Hierro

Nice Map BTW, you can click on and off each day o see where they are headed.
The 9 x July 2 icons not showing for me though

6.5 South Taranaki Bight New Zealand

whoo hoo what a ride


had been asleep probably for an hour, woke up hot as, heard a rumbling then a slight shaking, bit of a 4. something I thought, then it eased for a few seconds then the shaking got quite strong house was making a heck of a racket, creaking and stuff started falling off shelves, then eased off real quick.Cats went leaping off the bed
No damage, just small things fallen over.

Just thinking of the intensity if it had been shallower, 230km is pretty deep.
Felt as strong as the 2005 6.3 quake at 143km and the 2006 6.0 (5.989) at 172km quake similar area

Here is the data from the National Geographic Institute up to 10:00 UTC today. 1437 events on El Hierro



Blog has been updated - see if that works for you today if not let me know. I am finding that turning a set off turns them all off even though they show as on. You need to turn off and on to get them showing again.

Not sure if this is a KML problem. The file is GE compatible as well so you could load it into GE. It works just fine there. Maybe I will do 2 versions.

Richter 7.0 = ~6.65 Mw so larger than USGS

5.9 mb (EMSC) = ~6.13 Mw so much lower than NZ but about the same as USGS.

Whoo Hoo!

Felt it down here in Christchurch too!

Hope it's not the start of something bigger to come.

Must have stirred things up as we got a 3.8 just a few minutes ago.

I was chatting on FB to my friend who lives in New Zealand when it happened (which was a weird earthquake by proxy experience) ... but I said the exact same thing to her when I checked to see how deep it was.

7.0 might be a bit high even if ML

The Geonet Rapid estimate after 3minutes is pretty close to USGS's 6.6ML

Big tick for GRapid, it was up on the web as fast as the time it took me to gather my thoughts check for damage and open Firefox on my laptop.

Around half nine I did hear an unusual boom that lasted for just over a minute. Kinda made my eardrums vibrate. Went out side because I thought someone had their sounds/bass up. It wasn't music. Not sure what I heard - not heard that sound before. Wonder if it was related to this earthquake - geo-tension?

breaking news here is that they have raised the alert level on a volcano there to level 1
