I'm not getting all excited about this one... but, since they may not list this one on the USGS, (don't want to start a Yellowstone panic on the weekend) I just want to note this one. Because it's over 2.5M but I'm not going to guess on it's exact magnitude but I'm sure it's won't be above 3.5M.

If I am excited, it's because there's been a small clustering worldwide. When I first mentioned a bit of a cluster, one those quakes seemed to be a precursor for the Russian earthquakes 7+.

I guess I should guess at the location of the Yellowstone quake. Hmm, I think it's near Hebgen Lake.

I found the listing. It's not at Yellowstone, it's north of there and the earthquake is a 4.1M.

I have to say that I do not watch these buoys with any frequency as to be perfectly honest they do not interest me that much - except, as you mentioned, where they can indicate a rise in the ocean floor.

Right now the buoy off Kamchatka is in event mode - not really surprising considering it got all shook up.

Expanding the data to cover 5 days (27/28/29/30/31) we can see that the buoy went into event mode around 2am on the 30th Jan

Click the image to enlarge

So there was a 'warning' of around 90 minutes - BUT, if you were looking at that instrument at the time would you have said an earthquake was imminent? I somehow doubt it as there was a ~20 metre height change in a couple of minutes.

I would have said "anomaly". Of course subsequent events said no, not an anomaly, and I think this possibly answers your question in that yes it would take time to determine that cause of a change to the pattern.

Remember of course that any pressure difference cause by the Magnetohydrodynamic drive on secret Gubbermint submarines would be known about but never divulged - it would be an anomaly.

The problem with this is that we - meaning us lower life forms - do not really have access to the sort of longer term data that would show displacement, however I am sure that the men in white coats have access. I tried to get the data from 2007 which is apparently available - but try and get it!

Ha.. Thats the message I have been getting all week. So I figured I would wait until this week to look more into past data.

That long term data is one of the things I am hoping to get a look at. I have not received a reply from Mr. Stevens.

Thank you PuterMan for posting this information. I alway's learn from you. Were you ever a teacher? If not, you should be.

USGS is showing it at a 6.2. But it looked bigger to me. Are you seeing it as a 6.6 ?

Now here it is a 5.8

I see this one that USGS didn't even list.

What is your opinion about these Cuba quakes?
Something much bigger brewing?

geonet are saying 6.6, that will be ML so could well be just 6.2 Mw on conversion

what do you mean "that shallow" ? it was 366 km deep!
plenty of felt reports, even down here where I am though I didn't feel it at work.

We have some deeper activity today at Mt. Rainier. Keeping an eye on it:


ETA: They just added a smaller one in there for earlier today.

Good news on the funding front for early earthquake warning systems and new seismic monitoring equipment.

University of Washington

    1)The UW; the University of California, Berkeley; California Institute of Technology; and the U.S. Geological Survey were awarded $3.6 million in funding today from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to help advance the earthquake early warning system.
    2)Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s office today announced its support with new commitments toward earthquake preparedness, including $4.6 million to identify and map geologic hazards in the state.
    3)Puget Sound Energy Foundation is donating $100,000 to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network over four years to buy eight strong-motion seismometers
    4)Amazon Catalyst, a partnership launched last year between Amazon Corp. and the UW, is funding a UW group that will develop MegaShake, a new system that will combine GPS and seismic data to accurately identify incoming earthquakes above a magnitude 7.

    Also, John Vidale, director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, spoke in D.C. this morning.

    Here is one more link outlining the new funding and private/public cooperation toward resiliencey in the face of disaster.

Looks great, but it's just a spit in the ocean compared to what they pay to build weapons of death.

So true, Muzzy.
I wish my elected officials would cut military spending by a whole lot, a little, heck, even a few percent would be terrific.
How many more horrifically efficient ways can they dream up to kill people?

I'm pretty sure we have it perfected.

Hi Olivine,

Thanks for posting this. I spent the evening reading and listening.

I think it is so cool that they now can actually see how the plates and mantle are moving. And that the plate isn't moving uniformly. Therefore "The Big One" might not be as big.

When I watched the video, I jumped around alot and some I didn't even listen to. (Long video) But I got the impression that they were having some resistance from the government to restructure government buildings. Thought about this more this morning, and I am going to go back and watch some more. What's that all about? If the government won't adhere to the building codes, how do you expect others too?
