Wow. Just breaking news at the moment. I hope there is no casualties. Seems there is a huge uptick in earthquakes.

USGS has it downgraded to 6.6. Only 6.9km/4.3 miles deep.

My thoughts are with the people and families effected by this earthquake.
I hope that no, or few casualties have occured.

This is a rather good size earthquake, so I'm sure we'll soon hear about the extent of the damage.

Why does the Russian geogical service have it at 45km deep, while the USGS reports it as being 6.9km deep? Funny... the USGS depth is the same as the original 6.9 mag report from Reuters.

Was it 28 miles (45 km) deep or 6.9 km (4.3 miles)?

There are 2 different depths there!!

No known faults in that area...but in the middle of a mountain range.

Hope all are safe....

ETA: the USGS report of 4.6 miles depth. USGS has a 4.2 plus or minus.....could actually have it at the surface.

I just said that about two posts ago. Interesting, the disparity in the two depths reported.

Yeah that is strange. If the quake was shallow then I'd be shouting HAARP!!

Does anyone have any idea how populated the area is? Hopefully, not very!

Any chance it could be a nuke test was there a P wave before
One said 4.2 US
one said 28 USSR

I wondered that too. I trust the USGS report. Seeing that it could have been at ground level, and in a remote area, and I can't seem to find much new info....I do wonder.

“Everything is all right. Our dispatchers work round the clock and they did not receive any calls on any destruction,” the spokesman said.

One of the local citizens residing on the 9th floor of a multi-storey residential building said everything was shaking so intense that the wardrobes in his apartment were about to fall down.

(...)

The ministry’s spokesman also said that local residents were warned about the possibility of aftershocks and were advised to leave their homes.

A spokesman for MRSK Siberia power grid company said that power supplies in the region were not damaged by the quake.

The Russian emergencies ministry confirmed that a strong earthquake hit Tyva.

"According to preliminary information, there are no casualties or destruction," a spokesman for the Siberian branch of the emergencies ministry, told AFP. He declined further details.

The ITAR-TASS news agencies said residents of the larger Siberian cities of Krasnoyarsk and Abakan, hundreds of kilometers from Kyzyl, had reported feeling tremors but there were no reports of damage there.

When a fault ruptures, energy is released in the form of seismic waves. The first waves to reach the earth’s surface are primary or “P” waves (Figure 2). P waves are compressional waves that travel at a speed of about four miles per second near the surface – faster as depth increases. The next waves to reach the earth’s surface are secondary or “S” waves. S waves are shear waves that move at a speed of about 1.5 miles per second. P and S waves are body waves that travel through the earth much like sonar waves travel through water. Surface waves, which are slower than S waves, travel along the surface of the earth much like waves at the surface of the ocean. S waves and surface waves cause the most destruction at the earth’s surface.

A nuke
What is missing from the seismograph are earthquake are the primary or “P” waves.

I wondered that too. I trust the USGS report. Seeing that it could have been at ground level, and in a remote area, and I can't seam to find much new info....I do wonder.


Remember somebody saying that the two wave should look different.
ok google here i come

OK a nuke graph is in green


And a Quake is in black with P and S wave



Does anybody have a picture of the quake thank

One in washington Dc and now one in Russia, Gog and Magog will both fall. God is giving the warning signs in the form of plate tectonics.
