Muzzy, we now have seen what a small piece of rock can do when it explodes over a populated area. Kind of reminded me of the Movie "Meteor". I'm sure that the people who saw and experienced that thing thought the world was coming to an end.

No let us take and multiply that by a few hundred feet and imagine where we are at.

M3.3 - 85km N of Road Town, British Virgin Islands

What is significant about this quake?

Nothing in particular other than that is the latest, a few minutes ago, in a small stream of Virgins that have been sneaking in under the radar, yet it is dated the 9th.

ETA: just noted the date at the bottom of the page


Page Last Modified: February 09, 2013 13:57:22 UTC




It has gone again,and now I find this particular quake has been added and deleted over 50 times today 231 times in total - that is what I have been seeing. I was just noting the location and not the times.

from that updated web page I linked to on the last page re 2012 DA14 (the asteroid)

“No Earth impact is possible,” said Donald Yeomans, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “No one has raised a red flag, nor will they,” Yeomans told reporters. “I certainly don’t anticipate any problems whatsoever.”
"Although they wouldn't (cause) a global catastrophe if they impact the Earth, they still do a lot of regional destruction," said Lindley Johnson, who oversees the Near-Earth Object Observations Program at NASA headquarters in Washington DC.

and the Meteor in the Urals

NASA scientists said that the incident is not connected to the approach of 2012 DA14, which measures 45 to 95 meters in diameter and will be passing by Earth tonight at around 19:25 GMT, at the record close distance of 27,000 kilometers.


not really earthquake related, but kind of USGS to list it anyway.


geez time flies , there was a meteor flew over Canterbury NZ in 2006 www.nzherald.co.nz..., perhaps a forewarning of the devastating earthquakes to come in 2010/2011?

I don't believe that kind stuff, people need to get on with their lives

Long time since my last post here.
Just a thought.

Would we "soon" be in for a magnitude 8 to 9 earthquake in the Main Himalayan Thrust?
I'm asking because there have been detection of magma and water around the MHT and data has showed a thrust dipping in two to four degrees northward, and also revealed a segment of thrust that dips 15 degrees downward.

I guess a ramp such as that one could be a nucleation point for a massive earthquake?

Russian Meteor Shook Ground Like An Earthquake
Becky Oskin, OurAmazingPlanet Staff Writer
Date: 15 February 2013 Time: 01:02 PM ET

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.



A meteor explosion in the skies above Russia this morning also walloped the Earth, triggering shaking as strong as an earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reports.

Today's early morning blast, centered on the Chelyabinsk region, sent massive tremors through the ground, which were recorded on seismic monitoring instruments around the world.

Initial reports pegged the explosion as similar to a magnitude [color=lime]2.7 shaker, according a seismograph released by the USGS. For comparison, the 1908 Tunguska meteor blast's shock waves, which flattened 80 million trees in Siberia, produced the equivalent of an estimated 5.0 temblor.

Magnitude upgraded to 6.3 by Geonet, that will be ML.
yeah I would agree it was a big quake .......... "far field" as the Japanese say

roughly about 648km away from me.
No damage, but the house was wobbling good and open doors "tapping" against the walls.

Its just coming on LISS SNZO now, quite a small trace, that would be becasue of the depth.

I'm amazed at the Travel Time though.
I felt it about 6:19 (the time I looked at the clock), must have been the S wave I felt as I didn't hear or feel any separate sounds or movement like you do with closer quakes

Sashimi dinner? I got the impression that schools of fishes attracted the attention of schools of dolphins and, from there, it turned into a giant picnic



Marine mammal expert Sarah Wilkin said the reason the large pod might be there is because there’s plenty of food in the area, including sardines, herring and squid. “They’re attracted to kind of the same thing, they might wind up in the same place,” she said.

I really am at a loss for words. That's...wow, I have no words. 100k dolphins. Food or omen, that's beyond stunning.

I am not sure, why the Dolphins should have anything to do with earthquakes...
