I'm going to look into a bit more but I wanted to read twitter feed about the Japan earthquake and the first link that I followed had this: Japan Earthquakes ‏@earthquakejapan 6.0 to 6.8 earthquake is likely in the next 12 hours within 200 kilometers of Tokyo, Japan. (risk dangerous level)- --that was posted about 4 hours prior to this earthquake.

Anybody ever heard of QuakePrediction.com?

Yes. It is coincidence. That site is always predicting large earthquakes in California and Japan so by the law of averages one day they had to get ti nearly right.

Ahh. Broken clock. So, I will disregard that site's warning about Italy. That first twitter find made my eyes widen.

I'd just turned it off about 10 minutes prior to the quake.


Such is always the way isn't it.

I am wondering if this quake will have had any effect on the stability of Pool 4 or have they sorted that out now?

Last new Years when they had the vertical quakes it cause their jack-post supports to punch new cracks in the #4 fuel pool, and I'm pretty sure it drained somewhat, started burning and was recovered with water. Puterman. I guess a BIG question is are these quakes side to side or up and down? Also I noticed the quakes all seem to be at the base of the big 30,000 ft cliff at approx the same small area, straight east of Daiichi / Daini. None are halfway or 3/4, of the way up the hill. Does this mean these are just the start of another big round of quakes?

Puterman, do you know or can you find out if there was any sinking in any of the area hit by the 7.3 EQ. It seems that a lot of land moved during this quake.

Any thoughts/indications as to if this might be a foreshock, similar to what happened last year?

My thoughts are this is a foreshock and did more damage than thought. I think some things will be discovered after this quake. The movement seems to indicate that large pieces of earth are moving southeast together. 12-6-12 slight movement of axis and then EQ.

woohoo, just had a doozy here in the North Island



Public ID 2012p923684
Universal Time December 7 2012 at 18:19:04
NZ Daylight Time Saturday, December 8 2012 at 7:19:04 am
Latitude, Longitude -38.38, 176.04
Intensity ? moderate
Focal Depth 197 km
Magnitude 6.0
Location 25 km south-east of Tokoroa (Lake Atiamuri)
Agency WEL(GNS_Primary)

www.geonet.org.nz...

reasonably deep, about 295km from me.
started as a vibration (P wave) which lasted about 20 seconds, then changed to a wobble like the big 7's do (S wave) which lasted another minute at least, the doors were moving back and forth during that time about an inch or so. There was no jolt.
Usually these ones aren't felt close to the epi-centre, will be interesting to see the felt reports, Geonet is down, bet it was felt all over the NI.

I can see why GNS SeisComP had it at 4.5 to start with at 53 seconds, that was still the P wave
edit on 7-12-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


USGS has 6.3Mw
but GNS has downgraded to 5.8 since I started the post
edit on 7-12-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


yep felt strongest in the Hawkes Bay Napier Hastings area and lot of reports down here Wellington, not that many in Taupo or Hamilton.

Been a while since we had a 5+ here ( 5.54 Rotokawa 2012-10-16)

no sign of our twin ginger cats, but they are usually out hunting around this time anyway.

I couldn't get on Geonet so posted my report on EMSC

I stand corrected, 294km away, but that is based on their location, which is different than Geonet's, to the West nearer to Mangakino 38.35 S, 175.84 E

been 4 mag 3 aftershocks, based on description location and depth (about 200km)

That quake was just 38 km (24 miles) from Mount Taupo.

the area around the location of todays quake is prone to big deep ones, closer to Maroa and Reparoa volcano's, but at the depth can be discounted as volcanic.
there was a 6.35 near there in Jan last year 5km to the SW
last 3 years 5+ NZ
5+ back to 1930

Noone posted it so figured I will, today seems like it may be significant to point out.

65 minutes ago Eastern New Guinea Region, PNG. 5.7 98.0

The ring of fire is popping all over, from what I can tell its the Japan Trench, the Bougainville Trench and the Kermadic Trench. They dont appear to be connected but I don't know the ring of fire faults that well or if these would have correlation with one another, kinda seems like they woould though?

Edit: 77 minutes ago

Ugh!....hope all these shakes in Japan don't lead to another super-biggy out there in a few days time like somebody noted somewhere else....there was a 7.2 a couple of days before the 9.1.
