The big ones keep on rolling in today. The Earth seems to be reacting to something .

A very interesting little line of quakes at the Mexi-Cali border...

It wouldn't be such a big deal if it were not for the biggie in Mexico a little earlier!!

Your regions are wrong, that quake is within F_E Region 193 here is a map of F_E193

Bougainville Island is ecologically and geographically part of the Solomon Islands, it has nothing to do with PNG, except a political line on a map

The Kenai peninsula.

And I know we get a lot of quakes all of the time, but still the recent activity on the ring of fire has me wondering if a big one is on the way for Alaska, specifically the Anchorage area.

It'd be crazy if it happened today that's for sure.



Well, I can see why you pay attention.
That area gets 7's every so often and the 1964 8.5.
That is as bad as living in California.

The earth is rocking and rolling!

Thank you for justifying my paranoia!

From what I have seen there have been six more small quakes in Noatak, and most recently a 4.1 in Detana AK which is a little south and closer to me. Also there were a couple of threes on the aleutians today as well.

That's the way I see it. We get a whole lot of little ones all the time. Yet lately, even those have slowed down a bit.

It kind of looks like they're just marching all around the ring of fuego and eventually we're going to get slammed. Along with someone else.

There has been a lot of moderate-large activity over the last few weeks. Something's got to give pretty soon.

You know that old coinkydink thang. Talking about spacing stuff out I had just done these graphs and had come on to add them when I saw your post.

The first is the daily amount of energy for 2013 compared to 2014 so far.

Obviously the mag 8 events swamp things so I converted each day to equivalent magnitudes and did one of my long bar graphs.

I told you all to watch Mexico. Just before the 7+M., I was watching the Momotombo seismos. At that point I was thinking to myself that the earthquakes in Nicaragua were ebbing away. Except in the couple hours just before the Mexico quake, it increased and there was a 4.4 ish along with many smaller ones. Then Mexico. Then it quieted back down a bit. Coincidence? I think not. Yes, we saw a large earthquake in Mexico, but the really action will become volcano. I want to keep noting activity but I think it's more appropriate for Volcano Watch so I guess I need to change gears. In brief, Ubinas is constant and they are raising the alert. Nicaragua is on full alert as the government warns about earthquakes. But, there is also worry about the volcano. It appears the lake is regressing. LInks on Volcano Watch.

Did I forget Oklahoma?
I almost thought it was quiet. Nope> 4M this morn'.

Had to add. We are still having largish earthquakes. After a long quiet. This is again more support for earthquakes coming in clusters and there must be a wider linking cause than just tectonics.

Message to Gaia



Dear Mother Earth,

Just because earlier in the year I said it was very quiet I really don't see why you feel the need to beat up the Solomon Islands, unless you think they have been particularly wicked.

Just to see if it calms you down a little by doing the opposite of what I am saying I note that now it is extremely very humugously earthquakey with mahousive amounts of energy being released.

Your faithful Servant
Puterman.

Looking at the Honiara station in GEE, the strong shaking lasted at least 90 seconds; maybe even a full two minutes.
The nerves of the locals must be shot.


Here is the same station from IRIS (vertical component) HNR.IU.00.BHZ

Now a magnitude 6.6
geofon.gfz-potsdam.de...

However that may be an error as EMSC only have 5.6 - ETA: Now 5.8 mb which is about 6.05Mw - still way out from GFZ.

Depending on its location in relation to the mainshock, I think it was probably closer to mag 5.9- 6.0. It was over 600 microns/sec in GEE, the mainshock was 10 millimeters/sec.


As usual, still waiting on USGS to deliver their verdict, which will no doubt be revised +/-.4 in magnitude.

I just added to my post as you were posting. EMSC now ~6.05Mw (5.8mb)

Summat screwy going on at CFZ. They just upped it to 6.9

FWIW I see that USGS have now downgraded their figure to 7.5 (I assume Mw).

Link to USGS data page.

But as we know, that could change again.

Ugh, USGS has an initial offering of Mag 5.6 Mb, on the south side of the fault line for that aftershock?

That's a far cry from GFZ's mag 6.9...something screwy indeed!

ETA: Now GFZ have upgraded the aftershock to mag 7.0, but it still shows as an automatic listing. Their software is having difficulties, me thinks.
