The fact that it is part of the largest cluster of quakes in recorded history.
Check out the last 24 hours and you will see we have never had so many large quakes in such a short amount of time.


i was being funny.

Convenient.
What you said happens to be exactly what is said on very single earthquake thread that comes a long like this tho.



I was being sarcastic to the guy who posted right before me. Look above my first post.

There's a clue. RELAX..

So can an 'expert' or someone with some data come on the thread to show that the last 24 hours is unprecedented?

I would really like to know if something is going on out of the norm and points to something happening in the very near future.

I am no expert and cant give you specific data,
but nothing is out of the norm.. Just doesn't happen very often
and it doesn't point to anything happening in the near future, unless they are fore shocks which is a potential problem from any large quake.

Actually what was stated in the OP was that this is proof of an epic change, and only paid shills disagree..
I disagree hense the discussion. The words shill and troll are way over used!

Oh well...

I guess this is the price one pays for living on a planet with active plate tectonics.

6.5 in Michoacan Mexico, my wife felt it in Jalisco
6.9 in the Gulf of California, which you mention
4.9 of Coast of Oregon.

If strange you can see the energy move around the plate in sequence.

After the big ones in Oaxaca on the central american plate, not these in Indonesia, I just have the feeling that more and more pressure is building along the friction points on the west coast.

Does anyone else have the feeling that this whole fault line is going to unzip very soon!???

Hi all,

First I am not a shill (check out my other posts) but thought a little hard data regarding an increase in quakes was required here to see if there really IS an unprecedented swarm of quakes . So using USGS I tracked back and catalogued how many "significant" quakes had happened between Jan 1st and April 12th for the past 10 years, here are the results:

2002: 9
2003: 12
2004: 7
2005: 11
2006: 11
2007: 8
2008: 16
2009: 19
2010: 25
2011:26
2012: 23

So this is NOT unprecedented, but it is following a definate pattern of increase over the 10 year period, arguably a worrying pattern of increase. Bear in mind that this is USGS's interpretation of significant quakes.

Hope this data helps, make of it what you will.

Well, naysayers can say nay all they may.


Personally? It has my attention and if we have another couple days like this in the next week or less...well..I'll literally buy some last minute fill in cases of water and misc I've 'borrowed' from my supplies over time and really start watching close. It may be academic to someone in Fargo, North Dakota or Miami Florida but it's pretty unnerving to someone living too close for comfort to a fault known to pop triple plays in the 8 neighborhood. These aren't times to make people feel good about nature and I fear it's going to continue getting wilder before things settle again.

@ CrazyCloud ....You ARE taking into consideration the fact that your numbers there have 2012 in the same range as previous years highs and we aren't even HALF WAY THROUGH the year yet...right??

Yeah, it goes without saying that best wishes and stuff to those of you over that way. You are right, to folks like me, here in the UK, it is all an interesting read whilst relaxing with a nice cup of tea. Hope it all stays calm for those of you in the vicinity and wish I could do more than send internet platitudes.

I'm pretty sure most folks on ATS wish you the same too.

It raises quite an ethical point really, we spend time here behind our pc screen shooting the breeze, but how often do we truly think about those poor peeps who are actually in those situations?

I think I am going to become an anti-troll and spread the peace!

Hey, yeah the numbers are for Jan - April in each year, comparing the same time period. Not looking at whole years.

check out the solar activity....
just saying.

Also is there a possibility that we may have entered the meteor field early? I am asking.

^
the worst is places may be where plates have not slipped in a long while,

they will take the steepest slip/subduction when they finally give in.

ie, lucky puerto vallartans n baja californias they got like 3 near 7M and 3 5Mish ones in the past few hours alone, while Norcal pressure is building up, there was even a 0.0 in SF lol what is that? the silence before the storm (or megaquake)

it feels good to have whats going on and might be coming next, at our fingertips on smartphones and ats (for me, the first month ever), and still who know, its all up to what mother nature throws at us next randomly, to some extent anyways

What about it?

Can you clarify what you are getting at?

Doubtful, but go outside tonight and see for yourself.

And what relationship does any of those things have with a 6.9 earthquake?

Okay. For those who do not think earthquakes are of any significance, then maybe you all can start a thread discussing how irrelevant they are?
I for one enjoy discussing them and how they effect me and others on a physical level, and the damage that occurs with them, and so many other elements of them.


I don't think anyone is disputing this. I just think people become a little bit bored with people starting a new thread every time a rat farts in their basement.

There's no evidence that clusters of quakes actually mean anything. We had this over the last couple of years with every remotely seismic area every time it had a bit of a grumble.

It is interesting to watch, and the discussions are fascinating when there's some data and real intelligence about it, but when people loose common sense and start talking about how they have a "feeling" and how it's totally out of the ordinary, how their cats are behaving and how they had a dream last Tuesday about spilling beer and they think it means... That's when it becomes a joke.


It's nothing special to know that a big quake is on the way in the region, this goes without saying and we don't need any training or education to know that. But if the people who have dedicated their entire lives to the study of it are not jumping around like raving lunatics, why does the layman on ATS think they know better and that something is about to happen?

It always could mean that the big one is about to happen, but we are in that perpetual state anyway.

BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Sorry Im still laughing at the Sumatra Quake........I made 50 bucks off that one as it fell within my time frame.

Honestly folks.....we are definatly ramping up to something big here. When you stare at the data till your crosseyed and still can't make heads or tails of it, then it hits you................

These quakes are on a shift, IIRC and I'll have to dig this up, That area off of Sumatra is an area of the earth that routinly experiences a heavier pull of gravity as well as a weaker layer of the earths magnetosphere. So gnarly quakes in that region might just as well be a given.......but wait theres more....

Expect to see a greater shift of pressure on the US side of the globe due to the 8.6 in Asia. You essentially have one plate pulling a couple of others along with it at this point since the Japan quake. What I would be paying attention to is the weak spot around the Cascadia plate off of Oregon. Where those 3 plates meet there is a real thin part of the crust.

Thats not to say that one will happen there, but if the distribution of the plates is off thats where it'll be noticed first. And the Earth is definatly on the move....continental drift anyone? I suspect the earths core is playing a hand in all of this wackyness.....the data I've been seeing from the magnetosphere has me a wee bit puzzled too.

Again when Im not feeling lazy I will put up some links, but Im not even gonna blame any of this on the sun. Still something is making the magma move and build to the surface more so than usual which is aggrevating this process of plate subduction.

I see what I can dig up thats recent....it's been a few days since I took a peek and will want to recompile.

NOTE: this crazy weather is in my belief connected.....don't ask me how yet cause Im not sure how to put it into words....

We felt it here in Phoenix/Chandler. The fourth floor of our office building swayed slightly, enough to make all the light fixtures rattle, and the monitors sway a bit. Also anyone that had a bobblehead type toy in their cubes, the bobbleheads were all bobbing. This was shortly after midnight.

Oh gosh.. My bad. I feel like an idiot now. I've been up all night working on class work for tonight's classes and this is now two quake swarms in different parts of the world in 2 days. Umm.. It's almost getting silly here....all we're missing is.., you know? I'm not even going to tempt fate. I'm going to bed.

Sorry again I didn't understand your msg better. fatigue will do that.

"I want a pay increase"?

A few earthquakes happen in the span of 72 hours.

The World is not ending.

The Seas are not draining.

The continents are not sinking.


Now where's my coffee....

Hey Mr. Peckish, no pay increase for you, go back to work.......

This is the "Ring of Fire" you know.

I'm not overly shocked or concerned about these things. Just like the sun, things tend to happen in cycles....well...almost everything....solar, atmospheric/climate and geologic. Even animal migrations and populations tend to go in cycles.

It is fascinating and I am really curious as to what might be happening down deep in the mantle...but I don't see DOOM everywhere I look.







I'll be waiting for the scientific explanation.

You might also note that there are FAR more recording stations now than at ay other time in history, and we have very limited records of quakes, so to say 'never had' is really not a provable statement.

Keep in mind we have more monitoring stations now, as well. So they record more quakes, which very possibly lets us KNOW about more quakes.
