Love your commentary Duck and hope those Alaskan EQs are a coincidence but if they happen to start moving to the SE along all them fault zones, we both know where that will end up. Some people over there are watching Nth Alaska very closely.

Yes Petros they changed the location to further north to Heyfield. It didn't rock my world either, but I woke up at the time of the tremor. We have been having little short rumbles [1 second or less] and I thought I felt one mini one this morning. grin wink

Mad Elf..... grin

cold@28, yes top and bottom of the planet have been sneaking in a few good rumbles.

Alaska has recently been feeling many small tremors. So much so that I was quietly suspecting that it was building to a larger tremor. The energy seemed to be drawing north, so imagining where a larger quake was going to occur was [in my mind] a 50/50 possibility being in the south or towards the north.

The west coast of North America had a similar concerted run of small tremors too recently - virtually coinciding with Alaska. I thought an M5 may have come up off the coast [west] of California, maybe near Eureka offshore or further down the coast towards San Francisco...?

A quake [M4+] may come up in relation to the Indian Ocean and/or far off the coast of South Africa [perhaps east or south]...? As I have been typing this post, an M5 has just come up on the map south of Africa.

For the moment, Duck. {Pizza is calling me} smile

Aguanga in California is pretty busy atm, scoring lots around 50 microquakes below 1.5 last few hours. Something moving about?

Hi all.

Yes Mad Elf. Energy has been bouncing around the minor faults around that general location. A couple/few have come up in a more 'major' fault as well. I personally feel that energy from the south has become snagged in that location and the energy may be also snagging again in the south towards the Gulf of California.
As I type this post, some tremors have come up in that southern location, near the top of the Gulf. I suspected that this may happen. I felt that rather than the energy continuing up past Aguanga to the north [which may still happen yet], I imagined it would get caught up again to the south.

Will see if this energy [I am thinking may be behaving as such mentioned above - if I am right] causes an M5 in the Gulf of California or somewhere on an associated coast line. A major fault line/plate edge runs through the Gulf Of California, and maybe a quake could come up even where the Tropic of Cancer intersects the Gulf...???

Italy has come up with the quake I mentioned it would. Ironically, I mentioned, earlier this week, to another person interested in earth movements that I felt there was going to be a quake in Italy, but also [and did happen sadly] something that may rock the ground like a quake - like an explosion or other large event. As we have seen on the news, there was that horrific bridge collapse and the freeway massive explosion. Just awful situations for the Italian folks.

Hope to catch up with some more EQ stuff later or soon.

For now, Duck.

Not sure if it was an earth tremor that woke me up in the wee small hours this morning - but the whole house groaned an cracked loudly. Either a tremor or this drought has dried the soil out so much that the house is settling.

Hi folks.

A biggun in Fiji surrounds, an M8.2 and very deep over 560kms. The energy was building there will movements showing up south of there. This large, and thankfully not damaging [according to preliminary reports], quake was not unexpected in my mind. There have been after- movements, a few more than m5.
A buoy south of that location is showing some movements National Data Buoy Centre , but a tsunami is not expected. Though, I feel that there may be some small water disturbances and possible altered current behaviours.

USGS Earthquake Maps

For the moment, Duck.

Yea, would have been a different outcome at 10km deep. More rattlers on Lombok, 6.9 & less. Planet definitely alive & kicking.

My daughter is currently in Fiji, landed the morning of the 8.2 and felt nothing then or any aftershocks.

Today’s Oregon 6.2 EQ is one that definitely got my ears pricked. That’s in the Cascadia area and anyone with EQ knowledge knows cascadia is serious business
Hopefully an isolated one and not the start of something bigger

Hi finally folks wink

Yep BIG T, shocking. It was relatively shallow. The nature of the quake can dictate the amount of damage incurred as well as the depth.
The very deep quake in the Pacific Islands recently, namely Fiji at around 600kms, did little in the way of damage [to my limited knowledge]. But I feel that this and the other larger quakes in the Pacific were the catalyst for all of the current activity in the Pacific.

The energy began running down from Fiji, through to NZ today. But I feel that we may see another large quake to the north/NW of these locations. Maybe somewhere in-between PNG and Kamchatka [Russia]. I hope it is not near Japan.

All of the recent larger activity in the Pacific may, I feel, set off Australia's quakes/tremors. Maybe more to come. QLD may be one state to feel a niggle, amongst potential movements in NSW, Vic, SA, WA an Red Centre.

Hawaii is still spitting up a few tremors. Apparently the lava pool within fissure 8 began rising again recently, but scientists don't feel it could erupt again. I am not so sure...it may be re-energized, but not in the disastrous level of activity we have seen ravaging Big Island recently.

When I see many locations in the Pacific coming up, in a relatively short space of time, with M6's and M7's, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that an M8 may crop up somewhere. I feel that this current time period may lend itself to such a movement.

Will catch up with more soon. Cheers, Duck.

Hi folks.

Well it looks like there is still some energy packed into the 'system' south of Fiji [M7 Kermadecs]. Some movements have also come up north of there - I mentioned between PNG and Kamchatka - but another larger quake came up lower than that in the Pacific.
An M6.6 in the Solomons region is also indicative of the persistent energy still contained in the large area around the vast region of the 'ear' in the Pacific. The 'base of the ear' includes the area of the Kermadecs and NZ.

WA has come up with a tremor not far from Perth tonight. M2 at 3kms deep [very shallow].
Will see if the other regions of Oz I mentioned in a previous post are yet to respond to all of the 'action' in the Pacific west.

For now, Duck.

Hi folks.

Well, Australia has had some interesting tremors/quakes till now.

NSW had a set of several tremors in the Hunter region today. M's 3.4, 2.8 and 2.7. It wouldn't surprise me if this region had another small tremor, even if it is very small and perhaps not broadly felt. Many folks reported feeling these tremors.

Two close in timing and same sized quakes came up offshore of both Tasmania and WA. M3.5 WA and M3.6 Tassie. If I am correct in my amateur observation, both quakes seemed to come up on the edge of ocean shelfs. Again, if my observation is correct, I reckon these lower quakes may be the result of pressures which came up from the south - firstly influencing all the quakes N, NE, E and ENE of our continent - without some of the energy from the south continuing into the seas below OZ - perhaps in the region of the 2 offshore quakes below Oz/Tassie.

To keep an eye on our quakes/tremors - Geoscience Australia

I had a strong feeling recently that many of our states may receive some tremor activity in a bit of a run. I forgot/didn't mention Tassie as a possibility, but it was on my mind's radar when thinking of Australia's southern regions.

Yep, quakes are going off elsewhere, but I have focused on Oz for now.

It may not be beyond the realm of possibility for Oz to feel an M4'ish or more soon. I could be wrong - will see.

For now, Duck.

Hi all.

Yep ColdFront, there is the larger quake for Oz I was quietly anticipating. The energy in that region was rather 'suspicious' with the previous smaller quakes indicating that something was going to give in that region.

Geoscience website crashed not long after the quake, I presume, because of the many reports they received.

The shelf offshore in that region was driving energy into the latest quake, if I am correct in my observation. Another quake came up well south of this region, south of that location, too - prior to the M5.6 in the lower SW of WA.

This may not be the end of some quakes/tremors coming up for the lower states, maybe including NSW - but not sure of course.

Hope it didn't cause any damage for WA folks. This larger quake seems to be of the same intensity of Melbourne's quakes, some years ago, which rattled the ground up into NSW and partially into SA.

Will be interesting to see what other WZ'ers post here as their experience of such an unnerving quake.

For now, Duck.
