Lots of activity last night and early this morning. Wow.
This article fed me some great info I hadn’t thought of - but should of!
(googletranslation) After the 3.5 magnitude earthquake yesterday afternoon, Etna seems started a veritable swarm: last night there was a new
shock at 21:37 with a magnitude of 2.0 at a depth of 5.6km, then in a night new quake of magnitude 2.1 to 1.2km depth to 0:34, and then again
magnitude 2.2 to 9.1km depth to 04:40 followed within a few minutes, at 4:47, a shock stronger, magnitude 2.9 to 3.5km deep, felt by the
This earthquake swarm could be linked to the "stress" due to the new volcanic bulge in place, after the deflation that had occurred in recent weeks.
The last paroxysm, in fact, it was almost a month ago, on April 27. But perhaps these shocks are signs of a new business coming in the next days
When Etna ‘swells’ - I guess like a pimple (forgive me Etna for the gross reference) - and then ‘pops’ (ok this is getting grosser) I hadn’t
thought about what happens to the fissure after.
After it’s empty and the collapse takes place. I guess I just figured it would refill and then ‘pop’ again.
From the article I gleamed there is a lot more that takes place and I’ll be studying that up ASAP.
We'll see, while we continue to monitor the situation!
Something else that should have been obvious to me. The numbers given to the EQ’s might be low? Like the 3.5 that tipped my
chair yesterday and the 2.0's that rocked my world this morning? Those are tiny! Right?
Not when they happen only a kilometer deep just below me! THAT'S why I'm getting such a bang for her bucks!
