There is Hill Air Force Base there hill Air Force Base They have in the past caused folks around their to jump out of there beds.
There is a interesting article regarding the booms and explosions that have come from this place. And according to another article I read they don't like to own up on stuff.

I am having trouble linking the two articles.

Hill Air Force Base
Here this is it

Bazinga!!! Maybe!

First a link to more than you ever needed or wanted to know about Utah's weather!
And definitely more than we ever learned eons ago in geography class!!!

utahweather.org...

I thought the Great Salt Lake Desert meant Utah was all hot.
Turns out I was very wrong! They have four different climate zones...and snow!!!
Who Knew? Not me! This is why I love ATS!!! Tangents...LOTS of tangents!!!

But then I found this:
Link to a 'massive' slide at Bingham Canyon Mine.

www.abc4.com...

If Muzzy's link to LDEO uses UTC, this might be it.

Their times listed: 3:31 & 5:05.
Utah's time is UTC -6 if I did it right!
Sooo...that would make it 9:31 & 11:05?
I think the article said it happened at 9:30.
LDEO coordinates: 40.75 & 111.75.
Ones from search of mine info: 40.52 & 112.15.

This one is a link to neat info on the mine, that says they would not be opening
the Visitors Center & overlook plaza on April 1 due to geotechnical movement,
(could they mean geotectonic?) over the winter. REALLY good thing they didn't!!!

www.utahoutdooractivities.com...

The mine is one of only two manmade objects on earth that can be seen from space!
The other one is the Great Wall of china.

Which could explain why we Americans weren't all over it!!!

Nothing to see here folks, move along!
WOQ

Not of any great significance this one but interesting as the name is not one you see in the lists very often, and it is about as far North as quakes occur normally.

Wow. Good sleuthing!!!!


Yup a slide would also produce this signal. I knew it was not an earthquake but it was difficult to find the right seismo to see what it was. After posting some of the others showed a clearer 'slide' (as I now know it to be) on the N and E channels rather than the Z channel. We tend to look at Z most of the time but for an event like this the other channels tell a tale.

I take it then that the great salt lake is not a lake?? Looks like one on Google Earth!

ETA: Just had a thought. This may turn up on the mines listing, but probably not until tomorrow. I will take a look and see.

yes the times on LDEO are UTC.
Bazinga indeed, looks like thats it, LDEO's locations are not usually very accurate, within 50km maybe
great work WOQ

Reached my girlfriend, she is reporting it was pretty strong in Osaka. They all get shocked since it is not normal to feel earthquakes there. But as far as she knows, there are not reports of injries and accidents so far

edit: and some of my friends are suprised that it was only one quake, they are saying it felt like 2 or more. Seemed very long for them. does somebody have reading of this quake already?

It has been dropped to 5.7/5.8 by the main providers now.

Just looking up a seismo for you.

Here you are: INU.G.00.BHZ.2013.102

Looks like only one quake.

And another one: JNU.JP..BHZ.2013.102

Still only looks like one.

There are several smaller aftershocks however

Thanks for the linking to the photos. The scale of the images is awe-inspiring. Seeing those dump trucks half-buried in the dirt was nearly incomprehensible for my brain which kept trying to compare them to Tonka toy trucks.

is that island some kind of holiday resort?
looks like it with all the lakes and roads running everywhere
are you still in Osaka? you have your address on your profile as there

here is a World map I created using P'mans QVS Data Pro program for all the quakes it can gather together at the moment.
as it says, 12/04/2013 UTC


[color=lime](click image for interactive map, opens in new tab/window)

of course these are just some of the networks, at the moment coverage is by
USGS
EMSC
GEONET
GEOAU
GFZ
NOA
CAN
JMA
BGS

I heard a whisper that
CHILE
IRAN
ICELAND
SPAIN
are soon to be added


when you play around with the interactive version you may see that some icons are darker than others, this is where there are a few versions of the same event, just click through using the "next"

ach its already better than that globalincidentmap and that other usgsinteractivemapthingy as it is

edit on 13-4-2013 by muzzy because: i had a summary of the number of quakes, but of course with multiple network estimates of the same events that is useless

At the moment I am in Germany, but my heart is still in Osaka and I will move back there as soon as possible.

I don't know about this island as a holiday resort I only know it as the way to Shikoku which in fact is a place of rest for many people from the Kansai region since it is really green and not like the Kansai area.
