Thanks Muzzy. I always enjoy your maps. I'm glad that series seems to have died out.


Here is a seismogram from southern Florida showing the Cuba quake. TA.061Z.BHZ

Ok, all you awesome earthquake people. I have a question for you. What are your beliefs in earthquake clouds? We had some here in southern missouri a couple days ago. They were very impressive. My husband was amazed at the clouds and I was stunned as well. I know we are also having a solar storm and Ive noticed some of the large quakes over the past decade or so came with solar storms. What are your opinions? I noticed California is more active than usual today also...


Could you be so kind as to link a picture of what you saw?

Just google earthquake clouds, and see if you can find the type you witnessed.

I am just south of of you,and over the last day or two, I have seen some of what they call earth transient clouds....I think there are three different kinds of that particular cloud formation.

All of the bigger quakes in that area are generally south of the island.

There are several fault systems in the area capable of 7+.

This one seems like it is in the middle of nowhere!

I think there was a decent sized quake somewhere east of Florida just now...Puerto Rico maybe. Big movement shown here (Transportable array stations in the SE United States.)

Turns out to be south of florida: Mag 5.0 Cuba -- USGS

Jesus Tapdancing Christ, I yelled at the kids for this, lol. I'd been doing a dry run of our taxes on our bed earlier this afternoon, and the kids have been watching the boob tube in here with me. I got after them several times to sit still & stop wiggling. One of the times was noticeably more "wiggly", but I assumed one of them was fixing to be a little butthead to the other (read: kid-pounce) and reamed 'em about wiggling again. EQ never crossed my mind.

Oops. Looks like the kids took the blame for Mother Nature's wiggling. My bad.

Some interesting activity in New Zealand right now...3 mag 4s within ten minutes of each other...spread around the country, including a 4.2 just south of Christchurch....first decent shudder I've felt for ages...sort of expecting more, unscientifically and just a gut feeling.

Another one heard out of the east-Caribbean peanut gallery:


M4.5 - 27km WSW of Pointe-Noire, Guadeloupe 2014-01-10 03:14:03 UTC

Location
16.132°N 62.026°W depth=167.9km (104.3mi)

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Just for perspective, in the last month, in the vicinity, there's been this 4.7 near Anguilla and this 4.3 near Guadelupe. It's typically a quiet area, isn't it? I mean, these are pretty normal in their frequency & mag, correct? I admit, I don't typically pay much attention to that end of the Caribbean, I notice the Atlantic Ridge quakes more.

Thats a hit for the muzzy "below 10TTNT in 24hrs=a M5 in 1-6days" formula
need to think of a name for that ..... "muzzy's rule"??? ha ha

Obviously from your statement after the question you are a believer. The problem as I see it is that there are so many different types of cloud that are claimed to be earthquake clouds. I have a great interest in clouds being a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society. One of the common types of cloud claimed to be an earthquake cloud is stratocumulus undulatus.

In fact if you take all the clouds here and look them up here you will find examples of all of them pretty much with details of what they are.

The next problem is that many clouds claimed to be earthquake clouds have no associated earthquake and the opposite is also true.

So whilst I accept that some believe, I do not and classify earthquake clouds in the same niche as fairies, Santa Claus, any omnipotent God being or that I will one day win the lottery.


Quakes associated with solar storms is a different matter and may have some connection. That is one of the projects I am working on at present. This may also have connections to earthquake lights which are not the same classification as earthquake clouds as the scientific community accepts the existence of earthquake lights.

Question for the experts:
Not familiar with Earthscope ANF and have not seen these quakes elsewhere.

Could someone with knowledge please have a look and tell me what you think ?

Did post on quake watch 2013 to Muzzy first, got to get that 2014 thing down.

Hello. The earthquakes shown on your image above are 99% mining blasts/or drilling related.

As for the ANF earthquake map in general, I recommend that you do not use it.
It regularly lists phantom quakes (they didn't really happen) that can, and have, scared the poop sauce out many people.

The only pages I use from that site are the "Orbmanrtd"--screenshots of entire regions/networks, such as Cascadia or Chile.

For general earthquake lists, stick with: USGS, EMSC, REV, IRIS Earthquake Browser, IRIS - Wilber , or see Puterman's signature for QVS...

Earthscope ANF is unreliable, many many false events are posted.
Its easy to see the false ones above M5 if you zoom out to the global size map, here is one for example.

Latitude 60.9117
Longitude -110.0900
Magnitude 5.1 mb
Depth 15 km
UTC Time 02:35:36 January 10th, 2014 UTC
Location Nw Territories - Nunavut, Canada, Northeastern Asia, Northern Alaska To Greenland
Author teleMb

The odds are that anything over M5 is going to be picked up by the main networks, USGS, EMSC or GFZ, so it is easy to check.
See those ones off the west coast of Southern California, those are false too
So those small ones in the Kentucky/W Virginia area are just as likely to be false readings too.

clouds

It looked a bit like this, but more defined and uniformed. They filled the sky. It was quite striking. It came a couple days after these big BANGs that were heard throughout SW Missouri.

The jury is still out on the validity of 'earthquake clouds'.

Ever since the biggie in Japan, I have been paying attention to the sky(a lot) in Memphis Tn.

I have witnessed every type of EQ cloud in Memphis many, many, times....no quakes!

I asked a fellow who is in the know about such things(screen name...
'Russian scientists'), and he said there is only one type of cloud caused by tectonic plate pressure....but he never sent me a picture


So...I am not so sure that these EQ cloud formations are for real!

If I posted a quote that asserted that your most cherished mother, partner, child

was a lobotomized demonized frothing at the mouth blooming syphlitic idiot that abused cats, dogs and children . . . you might well be understandably annoyed or even angry.

That's akin to how many of us feel seeing you use "Jesus" and "Christ" in the manner in which you used them in that post.

We think of it as beyond outrageous, insulting, cheeky, infuriating.

Is that really the response you'd like from us on reading your post?

I think the earthquake thread does much better without such curses. It's more pleasant and agreeable for ALL the readers without such junk.

imho.

A day of 4's globally, save for the 5.8 near L'Esperance Rock that is slated to drop off the list here soon. Magnitude-wise, it almost seems too quiet, a foreboding kind of quiet, if you will.

That's nice dear, but grow thicker skin. It's an expression of exasperation, like Jesus Christ on a Pogo Stick is, and that's as far as I'll go in a seismology thread. Save the soapboxing for the Religion forum

I found nothing insulting from your above post, just so you know

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network has set up 3 strong-motion seismos to observe the motion generated by the fans during the Seahawks-Saints game (going on now).


Here is the link to the blog post explaining what they are doing.

These are the links to the Hawk-O-Grams (seismograms). Hawk 2
You can switch between the 3 instruments and each has 3 sensors (vertical, east-west, & north-south).

I tried the real-time monitoring link they mentioned (1st link above), but the server is overwhelmed.
