NIED finally managed to catch up with Tottori
just got the data start of 22/10 to end of 26/10/2016JST
heaps more quakes than the Preliminary Data
Reviewed is showing 7457 aftershocks now
Preliminary Data had 2780

Some work for the weekend

Visso, Italy is now at 692 after 34:29:02 (hh:mm:ss)

I know its not a race, but Tottori at that point of elapsed time was at 2965
of course NIED are collecting below M1, which INGV ISISDe are not, so just counting M1+ Tottori was at 1880

5.4, 5.9 Visso, Macerata, Italy 26 Oct 2016 and aftershocks
Incl Google Earth Gadget, NZ Topo Map and Timeline

I might go through all the EQ Archive posts and put the GE Gadget on.

Just observing a bit up an uptick around Alaska. Also, South America is waking up after a long sleep. It's been relatively quiet. I expect something big coming up along the spine of the America's. This is just the opening act so I really don't know where the story will go yet. Remember, the biggest earthquake in the world was South America. Followed by Alaska. In the past few years, both have had some really big ones. Chile, Ecuador. Alaska. But it might be my feeble brain, But the last really big Alaskan was a year ago? And the Chile 8.8M? god I'm old, and forget dates. i'll check wait, they had an 8.3M last year in September. Since then, the biggest is Ecuador at 7.8M. Man that was big. So. South America is due. Central America shut off after a mild uptick not long ago. In general, kinda quiet .

So, off Chile we have a 5.9M. Muzzy, I am not saying that is not big, I'm saying, for South American standards, it ain't big. 7's and 7 and a halfs are big, 8's are really big, and 9's are "oh, my."

I just wanted to add in here that I am watching a storm system tango-ing off the coast of Central America, that appears to be U-turning back towards Central America-- this is exactly like the one I watched over month ago, right before the Salton Sea started head-banging.

We haven't had much rain in LA for, oh, a million days give or take, but it's coming down HARD this morning. This particular weather is supposed to last a few days. At which time I believe that Central American Dancer will be due to side-step it back towards northern Mexico/just south of the Salton Sea.

I've got my Bugout Bag ready- times 6, because my kids are big enough to grab their own. If the Big One hit before election you think we'd have time to get in a couple new candidates for our voting fingers?

Yes you are right about the M6's in South America being quite common.
As you may havenoticed I do like numbers and summaries .............
I have a pdf catalog on file for Peru called ECat_hipocPeru put out by the Centro Nacional de Datos Geofísicos - Sismología that I used to help complie the data for my Significant EQ blog (the 6.5+ World events on)
1471-1982 (511 years)
Mag8= 14 (one every 7 years)
Mag7=44 (one every 5.5 years)
Mag6=126 (one every 1.9 years)

as for Chile. using UTSU's catalog for
1471-2010 (539 years)
Mag9=1 (one every 539 years) (last one 56 years ago in 1960 a 9.5)
Mag8= 45 (one every 12 years)
Mag7=117 (one every 4.6 years)
Mag6=60 (one every 9 years)

but Utsu's data is a bit shy on the M6's, back in the day an M6 was like today's ~M4.5 on USGS global records (they didn't bother too much)
if you take the data for 2000-2010 Inclusive (11 years) from Centro Sismológico Nacional, Universidad de Chile
Mag8= 2 (one every 5.5 years)
Mag7=4 (one every 2.7 years)
Mag6=92 (one every month)

I don't have Ecuador separated out at this point.

Interesting. Considering, we had big in 2010, and 2015, Chile has had two over 8 in a 5 year period, yet long term, it's a one every 7 year average. In brief, I'd say a 6 about every month or so, is about right for Chile.

Maybe Chile is due right now. We had Ecuador. Maybe if it's South America, it's way down at the southern tip. Maybe. But, I was thinking of our moon. It's a apogee, and new. Then I wonder British Columbia, and it's slipping. Nah. anyway. Something big is coming real soon. I only thought about B.C., because of rain and pressures. They've had lots and lots of everything lately on the west coast.

If Alaska pops off a moderate, meaning, (6.4ish up to 6.9M maybe) (relative for Alaska), then I'd worry more about the west coast.

Oh, and, I think we're nearing the end of the world. I have evidence. I wouldn't just scare monger or make stuff up. But. The Chicago Cubs will most likely win. The curse will have been reversed, And the goats will reign on the earth. America citizens are having to choose between two evils. And, within a year, there will be a full eclipse over Yellowstone and the magma chamber.

Am I forgetting anything. Oh, yes, I'll be turning 50. Life's over...
ha ha

And since it's Halloween, watch some spooky movies.

Kubrick is best. But things in this order. Netflix has Room 237. Then go to the Library and get The Shining, Torn Curtain, (Hitchcock), and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Insanity is the greatest horror.

When Hal is being shut off. He sings a song. The song was not an accident, nor coincidence.

Mr Stanley saw the future.

He saw the horror.

Oh, I forgot sumthin. The last film, should be, "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb." After all, you'd need a laugh. And could be funnier, than Slim Whitman, riding a nuclear bomb to initiate the end of the world.

another 314 quakes at Visso, Italy overnight (my time zone) bringing the total to 1006,
3.7 the biggest in this last lot
additional 19.43TTNT energy released
starting to get ~M1.s in the data

map of the latest 314

map of them all so far

Visso page

BTW if you are using the Google Earth Gadget, when you double left click on an icon the map will zoom in to the location at about 3km above in 3D mode. I have no control over this, it must have been set by the guy who hacked the code to reproduce the Gadget.
I like it.

You would need a timeline graph to see if they were getting closer together lately, probably not, 539 years is a long time (6 lifetime's or more) so the average is probably bunched up at some points, like the lower ones (6's and low 7's) being aftershocks of the big ones (8+)
I'll have a look after a coffee.

BTW I watched 2001: A Space Odessey again a few weeks ago, I still don't get the end. And I read the book back when I was a teen.

Man, dang, Hillary is giving a live news conference. anyway, what is going on around the Europe? Another one near Italy. Something is up there for sure. Turkey, around Greece, Italy, and if I remember right, North Africa awhile back. hmmmm

5.8M and it's under the Mediterranean. Water....

Thanks I'll have a look at that later (no sound on my laptop)

I can't do the 539 year Chile graph, Excel doesn't recognise pre 1900 dates
pretty dumb eh.
I'll dig around and see how you do it.
Also hard to pin down that Chile "9.5"
It depends on who you accept as the correct magnitude
ISC International Seismological Centre says it was only 8.7
but on conversion to MW went tp 9.6
Its the oldl story I have been moaning about for years, how can you compare a 1471 earthquake in Ms to a 2010 one in Mw?

Bit of a shift near Italy, very deep
ML 5.7 South Tyrrhenian Sea (MARE) on

I watched the video. Its not really what I meant though, having read the Arthur C Clarke sequel 2010 : Contact I knew what the monoliths were about.
I watch a couple of other 2001 vids on utube as well, but still in the dark as to what the room with the bright floor was about and how Dave aged and was reborn.
Sometimes things are exactly what they appear to be.
Science fiction.

This is not good at all
right in Norcia township according to INGV

2016-10-30 06:40:17
13.1, 42.8
ML 6.1

EMSC have it just out of town
Magnitude mb 6.5
Date time 2016-10-30 06:40:19.3 UTC
Location 42.91 N ; 13.15 E
Depth 10 km

540 testimonies
Witness location : Petritoli (Italy) (48 km NE from epicenter)
Stronger than last Tuesday

Witness location : Colmurano (Italy) (36 km NE from epicenter)
Non ne posso piu (Eng. i can take no more!)

Witness location : Gualdo (Italy) (5 km SE from epicenter)
Very, very strong shakes, 30 seconds. Lot of plaster cracks. No structural damage as far as we know.

Gualdo is right in the middle of the aftershock area, at least they still have internet connection, or at least cell towers are not out

Yeah for sure!
We get plenty of quakes here but the strongest one I ever felt was when I was in Italy, everything is made of stone there and there is no flexibility in their structures.
EMSC is changed to 6.5Mw now
also INGV changed to 6.5Mwp

a selection of new comments on their site;

Witness location : Sala (Italy) (28 km S from epicenter)
Crollo di fabbrica ti è molte lesioni gravi (Eng: Collapse of buildings is many serious injuries)

Witness location : Monteleone di Fermo (Italy) (41 km NE from epicenter)
30 sec long and stronger than the other on 9/24 and 10/26. Stil vibrating after 15 min

Witness location : Porto Sant'Elpidio (Italy) (70 km NE from epicenter)
Worst I've felt ever... even my husband who was outside was knocked off his feet. We were seriously scared this time

Witness location : (Italy) (78 km SW from epicenter)
Worst I've experienced. living here for 10 years

Witness location : Spoltore (Italy) (95 km SE from epicenter)
Felt stronger than that of 2009 Aquila

Its not all Italy though
bit of a swarm in our North Island this morning SW of Rotorua, near Guthrie.
Its all volcanic through there between Rotorua and Taupo
I almost missed the Geonet graph for the nearest seismo at Tarawera, being late in the day before I got around to it.

there was another swarm close by at Waikite Valley a few km to the east back in February this year 65 events in a short time

USGS has it as a 6.6. now. Just woke up to this.

Again. Very shallow.

With the "Unzipping" of this fault, would you expect more 5+ Quakes?

I have to be off to work. But will try to check in during the day.

Was this recent quake in Italy an aftershock? I have had a busy week and not sure if there was one bigger than the 6.6 recently or not. I know they have been having them and had a 6.1 a few days ago but this one is bigger than the last.

It went like this
6.0, 24/08/2016 01:36:32, Accumoli, 17,647 aftershocks incl.
5.3, 24/08/2016 02:33:29, Norcia,
then a 2 month gap
5.4, 26/10/2016 17:10:36, Castel Sant'angelo Sul Nera, with 35 aftershocks before
5.9, 26/10/2016 19:18:06, Visso, with 1800 aftershocks before,
6.5, 30/10/2016 06:40:17, Norcia, with 223 so far

so the 6.5 is the Mainshock
technically speaking the first 18,000 quakes would be foreshocks to the 6.5 because that is the biggest one in the period
but I think this is more like triggering

And all these are subsequent to l'Aquila 6.3Mw in 2009
they all link up, like the fault is unzipping northwards
