this is kinda strange. USGS has a 3.3 (cali 3.3) listed in significant quakes

I was looking at the USGS site this morning and wondering why they had it listed as significant as well.

Does anyone have an answer for that?

Thanks!

I am wondering if it is because it was felt stronger than 3.3?

Earthquakes Today

There are 28 testimonies so far...
Most describe it as noisy with a hard jolt and felt like it was 2 not 1

That's probably why it was labeled significant, but if you or anyone else hears of another possibility, please let us know!

Thanks!

possibly due to location as well. when you bring it up to look at it its dead center LA valley area. population density maybe.

just a guess

EMSC has it at 2km depth, pretty shallow by their estimate?

now 10 kms can't anyone get this stuff right. I notice the poster below me said it felt more like a jolt, unlike past rolling quakes, just as the one this morning in LA was described as feeling like. Does this indicate something different is going on?

I was in the middle of changing my son's diaper when things started to shake. I just grabbed him and ran down the stairs of our apartment. This one started off more like a jolt , unlike other quakes that I have experienced here. Most of which start off with light shaking and then an increase in intensity.

It could have felt differently depending on a person's location from the epicenter and/or the style of faulting and direction of first movement--lots of factors.


GFZ have an automatic location also at 10 km deep, but lower magnitude of 6.6.

USGS has lowered to Mag 6.4mww [?], with thrust fault style faulting at approximately 24 kms deep.

Strong earthquake just hit Iceland. It was estimated to be 4.0 magnitude, but I heard it felt much stronger, maybe 4.5. It was really short, lasting only 3 seconds. Even though Iceland is located in Mid-Atlantic Ridge, this strong earthquakes are uncommon. This quake was located in Southern Iceland volcanic zone.

There wasn't any foreshocks before this one, which is weird, and quake activity has stayed low after this one. It was just single jolt. There is a change that this was actual foreshock, and that there is change for even stronger earthquake. This might be continuation of earthquake events in the area after June 2000, when 2 earthquakes (magnitudes 6.6 and 6.5) hit the Iceland.

M3.9
- 73km WNW of Skagway, Alaska

USGS

It was downgraded from a 4.2.

I hope that is going to be it for Southeast AK.
It makes me paranoid.

Reykjanes Ridge is active again! Swarm is currently ongoing and could last only hours, or days. Strongest quakes were 3.6 and 3.6. More quake activity is expected.



Looks interesting in "Time&Magnitude graph"

I know this is not an earthquake but it is related I would think

Volcano Eruption in Guatemala on Friday, 09 May, 2014 at 17:27 (05:27 PM) UTC.

I was reviewing the info on RSOE EDIS - Emergency and Disaster Information Service link and the eruption was listed under short term events below the map. Several other eruptions are losted under rolling events. Neat site as it gives info on various happening around the world but gives very little info other than it happened. Guess thats where we got to let our fingers do the walking and search search search.

Just had a 5.8 (it may change) in Anchorage Alaska

It wasn't bad just a shaker and only shook for maybe 2 seconds and maybe another 3 with aftershocks.

I hope that is all you all get up there for larger EQ's.

Downgraded to a 5.5

Haha
wow, your link says it happened at 6:16 and yep, sure enough that baby woke me and the wife up right at 6:16 this morning.

I'm all the way in Kenai, it must have shook pretty good in Anchorage?

oops, never mind I see it was closer to homer, no wonder it woke us up. I only got to feel the tail end of it
