Catastrophic Earthquakes: The 11th and 26-27th of Nearly Every Month Most Dangerous?

I was reading an Asia TImes report on the lack of preparedness still that many countries endure, even after the 2004 Sumatra 9.1/tsunami disaster- when I spotted these paragraphs:


The United States Geological Survey's "history of earthquakes" database reveals a recurrence of major earthquakes around the world on the 11th and 26th of almost every month.

Earthquakes have occurred on February 11, March 11, April 11 and August 11 in the Malacca Straits, and December 11 in Taiwan. The Andaman earthquake struck on June 26, 1941, the Great Alaska earthquake on March 27, 1964, the Assisi earthquake on September 26, 1997, the Gujarat earthquake on January 26, 2001, the Bam earthquake on December 26, 2003 and the Asian tsunami on December 26, 2004. Large tsunamis have recurred in the same fault zone once in every 50 to 60-year cycle.


www.atimes.com...

But the article seems to draw no line as to how big the earthquake has to be before it qualifies. For example, there was a 7.1 in Vanuatu on Feb 2.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

And there was a 6.8 in the Izu Islands on Jan. 1:
earthquake.usgs.gov...

Both of those fall way outside the 11/26/27 monthly date range. Nonetheless, as the article states, there HAVE been pretty darn big quakes on those dates, and it does make me want to put a little more expectation on those dates for the future. What I need now is a reason to RESIST that temptation. I need to show that there is no reason whatsoever to believe this- that a massive quake can happen anytime.

Well, here's one- the biggest quake ever recorded (9.5 Mw) happened in Chile, May 22, 1960.

And looking down this USGS list of historical quakes sorted by date, I see no reason to put more emphasis on the 11/26/27 dates.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

But darnit, every time the 11/26/27 dates roll around each month, this report will no doubt be in my mind.

Resist. RESIST!

RESIST!!
You must... Otherwise your brain will eventually turn into the same mush that so many others apparently have -- like the ones who actually believe that zombie apocalypses are real...

But seriously, as we'll run into all sorts of queries about choices if we choose events based only on the casualties they caused, let's do it another way and just look at a database of mag 8.0 or bigger quakes.

Of the 32 Mag 8.0 or bigger quakes in the NEIC database (from 1973 to the most recent ones back in April), the only ones on the 11th, 26th or 27th of any month are:

PDE 1975 05 26 091151.50 36.00 -17.65 33 8.1 UKPAS 6D. .T.....
PDE 2004 12 26 005853.45 3.30 95.98 30 9.1 Mw01100 9CM STS...M
PDE 2010 02 27 063411.53 -36.12 -72.90 22 8.8 MwUCMT 9CM UTS....
PDE-W 2011 03 11 054624.12 38.30 142.37 29 9.0 MwWCMT XCM STS...M
PDE-Q 2012 04 11 083836.72 2.35 93.07 20 8.6 MwWCMT .CM .T.....
PDE-Q 2012 04 11 104310.85 0.80 92.46 25 8.2 MwUCMT 5FM .T.....


So... Two on the 26th, one on the 27th, and three on the 11th.

Yeah, I know that the four most recent quakes occurred on the 27, then the 11th, the 11th and ummm...the 11th...and okay, the last two both occurred on the same day and it was the 11th...

But...

Errrrm...

I'll need to investigate this further...

Ha, I needed a good laugh today. Thanks for supplying it. Wassa matta? Having trouble resisting?

I think we know who will be along shortly to blow this theory out of the water...

11/26/27 dates not an issue with these.

Right?

Shhhhh.... We're not supposed to mentioned that the Cascadia one was on the 26th...


What will happen if the MSM are snooping again on ATS?


As for that other list of events you posted: yep, no problems there.
It's all random, really. Completely random.

The problem is that some folks will think it isn't.

Oh, by the way, with that list of mag 8.0 -plus quakes I linked to... the most "popular" day is Wednesday, with 8 of the 32 events, followed by Thursday, with 7. So, almost 50% of the big ones happened on just two days!
But Fridays? Only 2 out of the 32.

You know, when I see "these dates are the most significant" arguments, I often wonder what they'd say if someone just rearranged the calendar again, like was done back in the 18th century? Guess they'd have to play around with the dates all over again.

In July, the 11th is on a Wednesday, and the 26th on a Thursday.
Perfect time for another 8+.
