The Earths crust is moving.

Its been moving for the last several billion years, and will probably continue to do so for the next several billion years, until the cores temperature drops below some threshold level.

This should not be a revelation to anyone. Its basic modern knowledge that is accessible to anyone with a computer or a library.

Becoming flabbergasted is not necessary.

This is a pretty significant quake, but it is deep.
600km. So no tsunami is expected, and because of its location, I doubt there will be any significant damage.

I had no idea that quakes could be that deep, 600+ kms ??

Wow.

8.2 at any depth should be a signifigant shake.
Theres bound to be reverberations in other places....
didnt an 8.2 rock the earths axis a while back?Took a second out of the day or something?

gotta be connected to the solar storm we had yesterday? even some people said '' increased earthquake activity ''

But to be fair, people say that EVERY time there is a solar flare.

EVERY
SINGLE
TIME



And besides, we're not in a particularly strong event right now, nor even yesterday.
Solar radiation storm level is curerently S1, the lowest level.
The NOAA geomagnetic storm level is currently nothing at all (none).
The Xray flux is low.
etc...

Do you really want to put this earthquake in a data point of proof of that idea?

Depends what you mean by "reverbarations in other places".
The answer is yes, the "reverbarations" will be all over the planet. Every seismometer on earth will pick up an event of this size, because the whole planet gets shaken.
As an example, here in Australia it is large enough to cause a complete 100 percent full scale deflection (overload, if you will) on my seismometer. So its strange to think, but yes, the earth beneath my feet is "shaking" right now because of this earthquake, and even an hour after the event it continues to do so.

The big Japanese earthquake a few years back was *calculated* to theoretically have changed the length of the day by 1.8 microseconds.
As far as I'm aware that tiny amount was never observed, just theoretically calculated by one guy.

It is more likely there is a correlation between coronal holes and earthquakes. Suspicious observers made this connection and i think he's bang on the money. He started a quake watch on the 21st and there has been an up tick in earthquakes during his watch period.

From earthquake-report.com

Massive earthquake in Russia’s far east – Felt in Moscow and parts of China, India and Japan


- A large crack also appeared in a bridge in Jakutsk in eastern Siberia, only 1500 km west of the epicenter.
- Some damage reports arrive from Moskow and Samara, where a few buildings cracked.
An other country, feeling this quake, is Kazakhstan. 20 people in Uralsk in western part of the country reported authorities they felt it.



- Seems that this quake was felt over the whole Eurasian plate. Russian media report that also some people in Romania felt it. We received reports from Finland and Denmark and a perso from Italy gave their report to ESMC.
In St. Peterburg one more building was evacuated. Both towns, Moscow and St. Petersburg, usually do not have any earthquakes. So people are frightened if it happenes.
There are still no news about damage from Kamtchatka. But usually those buildings widestand larger intensities than V, so no heavy damage is expected.


- Many parts of China were also affected by the quake. People from different provinces said they felt the quake, among them Heilongjiang, Gansu, Hubei, Chongqing, Jiangsu and Sichuan. No damage was reported from China.


- We also received reports of people in Alaska and Canada who might have felt this quake.


India and Japan also experienced only a weak shaking.



– There exists a very very low tsunami threat from this M8.2 off Kamchatka if the 600km depth is correct.
BASED ON ALL AVAILABLE DATA A DESTRUCTIVE PACIFIC-WIDE TSUNAMI IS NOT EXPECTED AND THERE IS NO TSUNAMI THREAT TO HAWAII.

It's good to keep an eye on the volcano activity in that area.

That is a huge area to feel the effects of a Quake so far down.

Do you think there will be a bigger one?

What is the timeline until the next big one?

We have one more X-class solar flare, so that's 4 for now ..

Will be very interesting to see is this complex group produce more very strong flares, but I think yes 1748 will be earth direction in some 3-4 days ..

Areas of "West Coast" and SoCal will probably have stronger seizmic activity in next days to days 1748 leave our view, also i try to find free time to monitoring but little possibility for that so precisely EQ prediction not possible

Also dangerous areas: Japan to China to Turkey to Italy, Indonesia to Tonga and west coast of S-C America ..

Think west Peru (maybe Chile also) will probably have very stronger EQ, guess in next 45 days EQ of M 7.5 + ..



I'd say this guy was at least pretty close...

Russia was hit by it too.

May 24, 2013 (MOSCOW) -- A powerful earthquake on Friday hit Russia's Far East with tremors felt as far away as Moscow, about 7,000 kilometers (4,400 miles) west of the epicenter.


Marina Kolomiyets, spokeswoman for Obninsk's seismic station of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told The Associated Press the epicenter was in the Sea of Okhotsk, east of the Russian coast and north of Japan. She said the quake registered 8.0 on the Richter scale.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported a magnitude of 8.2. The epicenter was in the Kuril-Kamchatka arc, one of the most seismically active regions in the world.

Apart from the minor inconvenience that :
- the posting you quote from was made 9 days ago.
- predicting an earthquake in 3-4 days.
- and because of a flare that didnt hit earth
- and has now long gone.
- and that the earthquake was not even in the huge areas covered in the prediction

Japan to China to Turkey to Italy, Indonesia to Tonga and west coast of S-C America .. Think west Peru (maybe Chile also)

Looks like this sort of thing is normal for that area.
Very active seismically.


Seismotectonics of the Kuril-Kamchatka Arc

The Kuril-Kamchatka arc extends approximately 2,100 km from Hokkaido, Japan, along the Kuril Islands and the Pacific coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula to its intersection with the Aleutian arc near the Commander Islands, Russia. It marks the region where the Pacific plate subducts into the mantle beneath the Okhotsk microplate, part of the larger North America plate. This subduction is responsible for the generation of the Kuril Islands chain, active volcanoes located along the entire arc, and the deep offshore Kuril-Kamchatka trench. Relative to a fixed North America plate, the Pacific plate is moving towards the northwest at a rate that increases from 75 mm/year near the northern end of the arc to 83 mm/year in the south.

Plate motion is predominantly convergent along the Kuril-Kamchatka arc with obliquity increasing towards the southern section of the arc. The subducting Pacific plate is relatively old, particularly adjacent to Kamchatka where its age is greater than 100 Ma. Consequently, the Wadati-Benioff zone is well defined to depths of approximately 650 km. The central section of the arc is comprised of an oceanic island arc system, which differs from the continental arc systems of the northern and southern sections. Oblique convergence in the southern Kuril arc results in the partitioning of stresses into both trench-normal thrust earthquakes and trench-parallel strike-slip earthquakes, and the westward translation of the Kuril forearc. This westward migration of the Kuril forearc currently results in collision between the Kuril arc in the north and the Japan arc in the south, resulting in the deformation and uplift of the Hidaka Mountains in central Hokkaido.

The Kuril-Kamchatka arc is considered one of the most seismically active regions in the world. Deformation of the overriding North America plate generates shallow crustal earthquakes, whereas slip at the subduction zone interface between the Pacific and North America plates generates interplate earthquakes that extend from near the base of the trench to depths of 40 to 60 km. At greater depths, Kuril-Kamchatka arc earthquakes occur within the subducting Pacific plate and can reach depths of approximately 650 km.

This region has frequently experienced large (M>7) earthquakes over the past century. Since 1900, seven great earthquakes (M8.3 or larger) have also occurred along the arc, with mechanisms that include interplate thrust faulting, and intraplate faulting. Damaging tsunamis followed several of the large interplate megathrust earthquakes. These events include the February 3, 1923 M8.4 Kamchatka, the November 6,1958 M8.4 Etorofu, and the September 25, 2003 M8.3 Hokkaido earthquakes. A large M8.5 megathrust earthquake occurred on October 13, 1963 off the coast of Urup, an island along the southern Kuril arc, which generated a large tsunami in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk, and caused run-up wave heights of up to 4-5 m along the Kuril arc. The largest megathrust earthquake to occur along the entire Kurile-Kamchatka arc in the 20th century was the November 4, 1952 M9.0 event. This earthquake was followed by a devastating tsunami with run-up wave heights as high as 12 m along the coast of Paramushir, a small island immediately south of Kamchatka, causing significant damage to the city of Severo-Kurilsk.

On October 4,1994, a large (M8.3) intraplate event occurred within the subducted oceanic lithosphere off the coast of Shikotan Island causing intense ground shaking, landslides, and a tsunami with run-up heights of up to 10 m on the island.

The most recent megathrust earthquake in the region was the November 15, 2006 M8.3 Kuril Island event, located in the central section of the arc. Prior to this rupture, this part of the subduction zone had been recognized as a seismic gap spanning from the northeastern end of the 1963 rupture zone to the southwestern end of the 1952 rupture. Two months after the 2006 event, a great (M8.1) normal faulting earthquake occurred on January 13, 2007 in the adjacent outer rise region of the Pacific plate. It has been suggested that the 2007 event may have been caused by the stresses generated from the 2006 earthquake.

Full moon tomorrow. Wasn't there some kind of alignment this month also?



Bottom line: 8.3-magnitude earthquake in Russia’s Far East with tremors felt as far away as Moscow. Tsunami warning issues then rescinded.
