The Tsunami watch has been cancelled. The Ocean has handled it.

Lol.

Also, I've read couple of pages ago that this throw the 188day cycle in the water, has anyone responded to this yet, because I would have to agree as this falls out of the cycle.

411, interesting - April 11, and I just noticed my favourite earthquake related song is 4:11 long (Def Leppard - Rock of Ages):

You can also call for information in the U.S by dialing 411. that's very significant.

As well as the reasonably well known "Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)" by The Offspring, here is another example of
GUNTER GLIEBEN GLAUCHEN GLOBEN.

I think if I ever become a rock and roll star, I'll start a song with that too.

Meanwhile back at the topic...

Interestingly, the prior quake (listed with USGS anyway) at this location was nearly a month ago:

Earthquakes in Sumatra, off Mexico, and off Oregon in such a short time span...
Wish they'd get the HAARP aiming system working properly and knock N. Korea's missile off its launch pad like they're trying to do.
Seems like they're rushing too much. They need to take a deep breath and get it done right.

Have you noticed severe neck pain with the headaches, too? Its been awful the last couple days for me.

It seems that the plates moved horizontally, hence decreasing the risk of Tsunami. With luck a vertical shift will not occur. It appears that there is a lot of activity along the ring of fire when reviewing USGS.

There was also another big earthquake in Michoacan, Mexico last night - Magnitude 7 according to IRIS Seismic Monitor.

Now two large quakes in the Gulf of California (Mexico)

I honestly can't ever remember there being this many 6+ mag quakes in a 24hr period before. Getting kinda spooky!

Ive got a question to all the seismologists. With somewhere around 50 aftershocks of mag 4-6 all very near the 8.6 and 8.2 epicenters, what kind of an effect will they have on the ocean floor? I am thinking about crevices opening or something to that effect. Also how many aftershocks would be considered normal for an earthquake(s) of that magnitude? They have been occurring every 15-45 minutes since the earthquakes hit....I consider the 8.2 an earthquake, although I guess some would consider it an aftershock....whats the official word on that?

How odd. Someone forgot to tell the Australians, and the Christmas Islanders, and the Cocos Islanders.

There is no Tsunami threat to Australia.

I'm not a seismologist...but my understanding is that the after-shocks we are seeing are very normal. Especially considering there were TWO 8+ mag quakes there. The aftershocks are still plenty up in Japan more than a year later. We should expect to see large mag aftershocks for several weeks....and smaller ones for up to a year or two!!

As to what is happening on the sea-floor. Well, that is a really good question. One that I think just about everyone is asking right now since up until yesterday no one believed a strike-slip fault could even produce a quake of that size, let alone two of them. I don't think anyone understands the mechanism at work there right now and THAT makes me nervous.

I thought the 8.2 earthquake was supposedly an aftershock of the 8.6 earlier earthquake?

Are they now being reported as two seperate events?

I've just checked out IRIS Seismic Site and there appears to have been
3 big earthquakes on the opposite side of the Pacific Ring of Fire subsequently.

Wonder what's going on, or if there is a connection?
