Just as I 'felt' (Honduras) Nicaragua/Guatemala has come up with an M4.5,
- western Iran's M4.7 has come close to the region I suspected it may.
- the Japanese islands earlier
- the Solomons (forgot to mention PNG as well)

But there's a bit of a surprise in the Gulf of Aden, south of Yemen - M4.8. This is one of those surprise quakes I mentioned earlier. I didn't pick the potential occurence of that one.

Turkey is no surprise. I have often mentioned this region as one for possible moderate quakes - M4+'s

Those persistant 'sticking' feelings I had about Tibet were cemented overnight. Quakes ranging from M4.5 to M4.9 popped up.
My 'feelings' just kept tracking to this exact region.

Near Guatemala (near coast of Nicaragua) popped up with an M4.6 and an M5.0 as I aslo felt it would (a few hours ago).

I had been feeling that eastish of the North Island of New Zealand, at sea, there would be more reasonable quakes and just north of there (Kermadec Islands) have experienced an M4.5 and an M5. So not really in the exact region I suspected.

Just noticed PNG has experienced an M5.2. This quite a reasonably sized quake and fairly shallow at about 10kms deep. But the GeoScience Australia has pinned it as being only 1km deep - now that is shallow and could have casued PNG to really feel that one.

Maybe Indonesia, Banda Sea region, Solomon islands regions....may follow on with some moderate quakes too..

Meant to add that Kamchatka (north of the Kurils), the Kurils and Japanese islands may also experience M4+'s today.

Just as I also 'felt' last night/arvo, the western end of the Aleutian Islands was going to pop up with an M4+

The Aleution Islands (west) has certainly begun rumbling. I had a strong feeling it would.

At this stage, no tsunami is reported to have been generated by The Aleutian Islands quakes.

Back again, after a wee absence from here smile
Seeing that Afghanistan has popped up again with an M4+ is one of those regions, which if my fellow WZers have been following my gabbling on in this thread, would have seen it has been the spot that has had a 'sticking' 'feeling' for me....one of those regions I seem to be constantly drawn to as points of 'concern' for potential M4+'s.

The Aleutions have been a bit of a worry today, an yet another region I've been banging on about as far as my 'feelings' are concerned. This has been super active today.

Southern Greece has popped up with an M3+...yep...another spot I have been having persistant 'sticking feelings' about too.

So far I have been pleasingly 'wrong' about Samoa and Banda Sea today so far.

There have been some aftershocks last night near Moe and Melbourne. Assuming that people can't be bothered for reporting it because it just kept shaking for weeks and weeks. It tend to lead some major event? Like Christchurch or Indonesia?

Hi Mat...yeh I was aware of those..was monitoring the subtle tremors. If you were getting on with your day, busy, driving etc., you may not have noticed them in the suburbs away from Moe. I feel there will be another more noticable tremor soon.

Just a bit about the Sandwich Islands which have thrown up a couple of M4+'s recently - this is a small region dotted in an arc, with volcanos that have been active in the last million years. The reverse fault it is associated with, and which curves with the arc of the islands seems to be associated with its current activity. There may be some more rumbles there.

The Carlsberg Ridge, east of Ethiopia, which has popped up with an M4.7, may be where the Indian Plate and the Somalian Plate are spreading, apparently at a rate of 2.7cms per year.
I am guessing that this may see some rumbles pop up near Saudi Arabia south. Maybe even down toward Madagascar.

I've been flitting in and out and not paying much attention to what has popped up overnight or had much time to concentrate on the feeds. I said a couple of days ago that Canberra may see a tremor of sorts...well, though they felt Melbourne's recent M4.6, they have had an M1.5, south of Clive. Curious...see what happens there.....

Just got in again and was going to gabble on how I felt that the Philippines were possibly going to rumble again with a poss. M5 - they just had an M4.7.

Soooo....I'm feeling that Banda Sea region, or Taiwan, Mariana/Guam, PNG, or perhaps Kemadec, Samoa/Tonga regions...new Hebrides???? may experience some M3+'s.

New Zealand, I feel, may pop up with some M4+'s, maybe north east of the North Island and not sure about the South Island.

As always I hope I am wrong.

Alaska is till rumbling (not unusual atm), but feel that the Aleutions will experience another sizable quake/s.

Utah, for e.g., and some other potential inland US states may pop up with the odd M2+ (Tennessee??? Washington border with Canada???)

Hawaii will continue to rumble with M2+'s, as will the California regions.

I'll have to finish this off later...I am about to get a little annoyed with my keyboard!!!...it's goin'. I'm off to replace it..the keys are playing up frown

Back soon smile

As with the volcano thread, I have found an interesting newspaper article, dated 5th September, 1932, regarding a Melbourne earthquake, involving Bass Strait and the bayside suburbs (generally)...interesting read.
The heading is quite dramatic - though not unusual 'emotion' in those times surrounding such type events.

"Earth Tremors - Melbourne Shaken - Widespread Alarm"

Right here's the rest - last bit of the 'run-down' from 2 posts earlier- before I was unkind (well...replaced) to my failing keyboard...

Mexico may experience and M4+, perhaps Guatemala region as well,
Chile may pop up with an M4+,
Poland may see an M3+
Turkey may see an M3+
The sea ridges (one or two) may pop up with an M4+

Some of the above have happened as you now in the last half hour or so....so, I've still put them up anyway as to what my feelings were earlier.... crazy

Dear WZ'ers.
It has been brought to my attention, in a kind way, that I may be posting too many posts, according to WZ rules - which I was a little (naively) unaware of.
I apologise for this. I suppose I was a little in my passionate zone regarding this threads theme.
I am thinking of creating a blog to accommodate my rambling on regarding this and another related theme.
Anyway, I will slam the brakes on on my posting in this thread wink and hand over to others, who can continue to post on this topic.
So as to not advertise other sites, you can PM me to get the site address of the blog I will endeavour to set up in the next week, if you would like to continue seeing what I may gabble on with.

I was getting a bit exhuberant with my posts here, wasn't I? blush

Cheers all...

Cheers Bulos.
I will still be hovvering around WZ. I enjoy learning from other members about many topics discussed and joining in too wink
I feel I just have to apply my passionate interests to another avenue so I am not hogging a thread.

Hi guys. Felt the need to pop in a wee post here to say I hope the peoples of these latest quakes are safe and well.
If I may mention, before my last posts here, my 'feelings' were very strong on this occuring today, but chose not to post such. Lets hope things settle down for peace for these islands.

Said I was going to cut down my posts here.. smile
But, I have been keeping a diary, noting my 'feelings', instead of flooding this thread.
Without wanting to seem like annoying itch to you, all the M3+ quakes which have occured and their magnitudes are unfortunately noted in my diary before they happened...those old 'feelings' again. I had hoped I was wrong.
