Got a link to a news report.

nz earthquake




LATEST: Christchurch is still being hit by earthquakes this afternoon, the most recent a magnitude 3.9 just after midday. Power was restored this morning for about 10,000 Christchurch homes that lost electricity in an ealrier 5.5 quake - one of 14 to hit the city today. The largest quake - 5.5 - struck 5.45am and was centred 20km north east of Lyttelton at a depth of 15km and followed just five minutes later by a 4.2 and then two 4.1s at 5.54am and 6.06am, a 3.9 at 6.49am, a 3.8 at 7.33am, a 4.1 at 9.01am, a 3.7 at 10.04am and another 3.7 at 10.18am. The most recent, the magnitude 3.9, was 15 km deep and centred 20 km east of the city.


The earthquake in japan a few hours ago was about a 7 magnitude.

I think the reporter may have been exagerating a bit
unless this is prior to what I heard.

There is still a lot land moving and changing in NZ at the moment, some sububrs are being hit hard by liquidifacation.

Not sure the after-shock earthquakes are that large to be out of the ordinary.. here :
www.iris.edu...

I see 2 earthquakes of magnitude 5, quite normal after a 7- one. However I am not going to say that everything looks normal and "nothiong to see here" as the number of signifficant earthquakes did increase in the last 2-3 years quite a bit..

Yes i agree.

I was in my car when they had a "breaking news" on the radio.
the reporter sounded shaken and said "he thought his house was going to collapse" as well as "cracks are opening every where! this is unprecidented in the history of the world"

I Immediately thought "holly cow this sounds bad". I'm glad im wrong. Those crazy New Zealand reporters

I think that saying 'This is unprecedented in the history of the world' is a little overdramatic don't you think?
Nevertheless, this is a bad start to the new year for the people of Christchurch. Move far away from there if you ask me.

yes way over dramatic, unless he's refering to cracks opening up

I just hope these are just after-shocks and not pre-shocks.

The quakes were offshore I can't see how anyone could see the cracks opening up unless they were in scuba gear


busy day across the whole of NZ there were 29 quakes before the 5.5 and 39 since, 69 total

marker magnitudes are;
aqua=1
lime=2
white=3
yellow=4
orange=5
edit on 1-1-2012 by muzzy because: left out a y

by the way 5's are "Moderate" or "Medium", there is no such thing as "Large" in geoquaketechspeak, the next size up is "Strong" which are magnitude 6's

I'd tend to agree with you on that one.It could be a prelude to a big one.

Yes it is over dramatic, or have you forgotten about the;
Indian Earthquake in 2001- 20,000 dead
Bam Earthquake in 2003- 27,000 dead
Indian Ocean Earthquake in 2004- 230,000 dead
Kashmir Earthquake in 2005- 80,000 dead
Java Earthquake in 2006- 6000 dead
Sichuan Earthquake in 2008- 70,000 dead
Haiti Earthquake in 2010- 223,000 dead
Tohoku Japan Earthquake in 2011- 15,000 dead
All of which have happened in the 21st century.
There is still a lot more earthquakes that happened before the 21st century and a lot more deadly ones too.
So no "This is not the most unprecedented event in world history".
Good luck to Christchurch btw

Please take care all of you who are out there, And make sure you are prepared in case,

Hopefully this is just some pressure release left over from the last one, What goes forward much come back so it could be that its just jolting a little to ease up.

But take care guys! And as you all know preparation is a must x

How long after the initial event are subsequent quakes considered aftershocks, and not separate events?
Just wondering.

Until the level of quake activity returns to pre-mainshock levels
it could take years and years.

The 5.5 this morning woke us up and we're west of Chch rural... the aftershock swarms are slowly moving east. However, many of us have commented that last night's quakes felt more like the quakes from the original mainshock fault (Greendale mag 7.1) than the recent city quakes.

We've had 9285 recorded aftershocks since the 7.1 in Sept 2010 which I was 10km from

This psychologist would appreciate as much elaboration as you may be up to.

Could you please tease out the "feeling" more . . .

Do you feel it at all physically? If so, in what part of your body? How would you describe the physiological sensations?

Do you feel it more . . . emotionally, existentially, spiritually, intuitively??? What? How? What are the parameters, descriptors you could put to it?

Do you have images that accompany the feeling?

Do you have memories that accompany the feeling?

Are there dreams that you've had that seem to ring a bell of association?

Thx in advance.

thanks for your input.
Do you know what the reporter could have been talking about in referance to "cracks every where"?
and how bad is the liquefaction? is it still occurring?

All the best to you guys and happy new year.
