wow, another big quake in same area- sort of... I think further west!

hmm

maybe 6.5, closer to station PMG... aftershock? dunno
edit on Sun Jul 7th 2013 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


wow, looks like I nailed that one at 6.8, although might come down to 6.6 or so.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

a 7.2 and 6.8, not good. Not good at all. Violates at least one mag separation rule. Seriously, lookout in PNG, big massive one could be coming.

lol, yep, it came down to 6.6, exactly as I stated above:
earthquake.usgs.gov...



So a 7.2 and 6.6 after first reviews, still not good. That's .6 difference, which is still not hitting the 1 mag rule usual difference between main shock and closest aftershock. And that's being conservative. It's usually 1.2 to 1.5 mag difference.

And it appears there have been no aftershocks at all, not even a peep, cause I been watching live seismo feeds. That also suggests something else is up- as if neither was a main shock, but rather, foreshocks. I dunno, we'll see. Give it two to three days, and the warning's off if nothing else happens there.

Maybe I haven't been paying sufficient attention to the quake threads to know the answer.

However, is there ANY USGS page that's remotely as attractive and useful as the old maps were?

It's really close to infuriating to try and make sense out of the USGS site any more GRRRR.

Sigh.

Pretty big size quake just hit near Guam.

Estimate, hard to say, only one station, but looking like 6.2 to 6.6, not sure...

...waiting...

Hmm, guess it was smaller. That's good. EMSC has it at 5.2. But darnit that pushed that station in Guam into clip, at over 3e7.
edit on Fri Jul 26th 2013 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


Aha! EMSC just upped it to 5.4. No usgs yet.
edit on Fri Jul 26th 2013 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


USGS: 5.4

Darnit, looks like I'm getting rusty. Don't do this enough anymore.

Have been watching this. Bad history in this area. Hope it's nothing.
