Hate to use the foreshock warning, but damn! Those magnitudes are increasing, and that is a pretty dangerous subduction zone that can and has produced much bigger quakes before.

And look at the swarm of quakes just south of there. Hope something is not getting ready to bust bigtime on that zone.


Delayed reaction further north to the 9+ in Japan? Or a zone that is doing its usual massive subduction rate? It has one of the highest rates of subduction per year in the world I believe, along that stretch from northern Japan up to Kamchatka.

I'm sitting here watching them come in on live real time, and seeing a lot of red.

Geez! I hope it doesn't break lose over there either. Duck and cover just doesn't seem like ample advice judging from the figures you posted.

Search for the map on google....it's kinda funny, because you can't even see the Islands they are so small, and you can't see anything but water all around it. It looks like nothing is there. Zooming in about 50%...still nothing. At around 40%, you can finally see them...

maps.google.com...

from wiki:


There is frequent seismic activity, including a magnitude 8.5 earthquake in 1963 and one of magnitude 8.3 recorded on November 15, 2006, which resulted in tsunami waves up to 5 feet (1.5 m) reaching the California coast.[4]

Whoa, that entire zone is showing quakes, and in a pattern that looks like a pretty large area is being affected. Nope, that don't look good. At all.

But of course nothing bigger will happen and all will go quiet..... ..... ...... right?

Fingers definitely crossed on this one...

Maybe it will be the 27th of July after all.

To update this thread, looks like the USGS has made more revisions, and there was no 6.3. But believe it or not, I checked when I posted this story, and every single one of the events as listed in the OP were "reviewed by a seismologist."

REALLY?

A seismologist? From where? Kindergarten?


If they can't tell the difference between a 6.3 and 5.8, then get them out of there.
I had questions about it myself, when it showed in my program as having less power than the 6.0.

But anyways... *sigh*

Kuril is extremely busy with quakes. The list as it stands now after updates looks like this since 7/13:

That's interesting, we had another one down here earlier tonight.

VICTORIA has been shaken by a 4.3 magnitude earthquake tonight, less than one month after a massive quake rattled Gippsland.

It's probably nothing major, except we never get quakes this size, this regularly.

I was in QLD when he first one occured and it could be felt for 100's of kilometres into Northern Victoria. I remember saying to my brother, sheesh, expect another one over in Gippsland. The difference this time is that we didn't feel a thing here..

Your right about the sizes of the Quakes here in Victoria. Usually Melbourne may get a 2 or something but this is very strange. Not long ago I remember South Australia getting a 6.2 or something which I believe was in the desert somewhere. Even that was strange.

Hey TrueAmerican, I've followed some of your threads but haven't participated. I know you are a person of your word when it comes to this. What should we be looking for if something really big goes down there? Is it CA that will get hit tsunami wise? Sorry for the ignorance but your post is scaring me a little...

Nah, don't be skeered.
With a big 7+ it could happen, and if it did Cali wouldn't see that big a tsunami. I think the last one was only 5 feet or so in Cali, with an 8+, and there would be tons of warning time.

And another quake just happened now in Kuril, waiting on USGS report. est 4.8 or so.

Yep, 4.7:

Well in this case, it appears that the pattern of quakes I am referring to, which pretty much marked a large section of that whole area on the subducted side (where the big ones usually happen in a subduction zone), did indeed produce a large quake, 7.7.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Fortunately it was very deep, and not likely to have caused much damage. What we need to hope for is that this 7.7 isn't early indication that another piece of the slab could be ready to break off and disappear under Kamchatka. Cause if that happens, there is no telling what the catastrophic results could be.

And beware that a recent pattern of quakes directly northeast of New Zealand I believe may be showing similar signs of a pending big quake.
