No, not specifically but I can't see any reason why it should not have smelly geysers being a volcanic area.

I would say that it has a small problem in that not only is it volcanic but it straddles a major fault line and plate boundary. Does not sound like too good a combination to me!

Strong earthquake hits parts of western Indonesia



Another EQ hit Indonesia today. It is not a mega or super quake but it is moderate enough to damage buildings and lives.


A strong undersea earthquake has hit parts of western Indonesia, but no tsunami warning was issued and there have been no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The U.S. Geological Survey says Friday’s 6.2-magnitude quake struck at a depth of 20 kilometers (12 miles). Indonesia’s Meteorology and Geophysics Agency says it was centered about 160 kilometers (100 miles) southeast of Mentawai island, off western Sumatra.

I do reset it to show all small ones through large ones. I thought it very weird that nothing whatsoever had shown up for the Japan area for 24 hours, not even weak ones under 2.5 had shown.

Four more earthquakes in the same location, SW of Rio Dell, CA to add to the two posted above:
Mag 4.0 24.3 km depth
Mag 3.3 25.8 km depth
Mag 2.5 26.0 km depth

I probably should of come here with my observations and questions. So, here is what I said in a different forum about the smell in California.


Last night I was looking at the Ca/Nv earthquake map that covers the last 7 days. I noticed a few things. First Monday, September 10, 2012 at 08:44:42 AM there was a 3.3 at a depth of 2.1 miles. Could this quake along with low water levels and the strong storm that hit this area be why the smell was so much worse than in the past? There were a series of smaller quakes in the same area of the Salton Sea that followed the quake on Monday.

I then began going down the list at this site. I noticed a pattern where one quake or two would be down south then one or two upnorth of San Francisco. Occasionally one would be in the Yosemite area or up near Eureka. I checked the site again this morning and noticed several 3+ quakes near Eureka.

It seems to me that the plates along the west coast are getting more active. I know they are always having small quakes. I feel as though the volcanos in Central America are connected to the volcanic sulfer smell continuing to come from the Salton area. I would not be suprised if there becomes more volcanic activity from the volcanos up through California.

I was searching for images showing both N. America and Central America plate boundries and faults. I found this (hope I link it correctly)

Nope. But it is the first image listed on the site.

Looks like San Andreas is slipping south. Is that pushing on the Cocos plate causing magma to find a way up and out? Is the slipping in 3 areas along Ca. Causing pressure on the magma below the Salton area?

I don't think I copied and pasted that right. Please forgive me

I think Indonesia gets more than it's fair share of the pie, in fact recently it seems a bit busier, but I am curious as to your reasoning.


Sorry, but no 'scientific' basis my friend


Only basing my comment on the activity of the recent high numbers of 5's & 6's in that region, which appear to be occurring more regularly over the last 2 months, that previous months. You can almost count on a 6+ hitting that region every week lately.

After the 2 x 8's back in early April, things went pretty quiet for the next 3-4 months, but certainly most of the major spots have fired up again, so it does seem a bit more 'predictable' to anticipate 6+'s IMHO.

BTW, my gut still tells me that we're due to have a dramatic event (could just as easily be volcanic), between now and the end of November, which will get a lot Dec 21st doomsters stirred up.

I'm reminded of that dream I had a few weeks ago, about a big quake in the Idaho / Utah region, but thank God I can't predict earthquakes!

I also can't help but think something big is happening and not just locally here in CA but in General. I've never seen the USGS map lit up constantly like a switchboard. You would have to be dead not to notice what has been going on in the last month. We are seeing earthquakes in places that don't normally have them or very little and those places that are active are becoming more so.

Tell me I'm not going crazy but it's just so hard NOT to notice that something is on the move. I'm seeing more frequent quakes along the Pacific rise and Mid Atlantic ridges. One plate move and other must accomodate but wow, things seem like they are in hyper drive right now.

I live in LA so I know all about the sulfer smell this week and I live just 20 miles south of the San Andreas (Palmdale) Segment. I've just had my family in Costa Rica ride out that big EQ last week and now more family in Guatemala figuring out what to do about the Volcano. They are Costa Rican so they can always go back to CR but then things there seem very unsettled.

I'm not a believer in the whole Mayan 2012 deal and I'm even part Mayan! I do however think that something is happening on a larger scale to the planet right now and it's hard not to notice.

pretty busy day, 49 quakes UTC 14th Sept.
Not a lot happening down Fiordland area lately,
poor coverage by the new system?, or overdue for a 5+?

Is there any way to find out on which Canary Island this EQ was centered?

This is important, because remember that on the island of La Palma, there is a crack in a mountain where, if destabilized, a huge island-sized piece of rock could break off and tumble into the ocean, causing a major tsunami reaching all shores of the Atlantic Ocean: North and South America, Africa and Europe.

According to my Earthquake App on my iPad it was on the island of I think it's called Valverde, or maybe it is Ferro/Hierro

Thanks for that info. Actually, the islands of Hierro (and Gomera) are in the Western zone of the archipelago.....right alongside........ La Palma
