I guess unfortunately that's just the nature of the world we live in wink

Quite a lot of the earthquakes you're mentioning are located in or very near the Pacific Ring of Fire and also near major fault lines and tectonic boundaries. It's only natural that there's gonna be big quakes there from time to time.

Also my memory is sketchy, but pay some attention to the boundary between the Indian Plate and the Indo-Australian plate. Our lecturer was saying about how both were moving North (the Indian boundary into the Eurasian plate being the source of the Himalayas). Anyway, the Indian plate has pretty much stopped, or is coming to a stop (only just recently according to him), and it is now becoming apparent that the activity along the Indo-Aus plate is on the increase as ours plows into theirs. Basically, in my life time, that area is (one of) the next earthquake hotspots on this planet.
Interesting stuff when you think that both have been moving for millions of years and we are now witnessing the end of that.

Hi Xavo.

There has been some solid movement in the plates, and is not isolated to one particular region. Even inland faults are popping up with some strong activity in bursts or experiencing multiple/constant energy releases, like the California region; Italy/Greece through to Turkey/Iran/Iraq/Afhganistan general regions.
My feelings regarding PNG (last night) were unfortunately strong. I felt that the ROF west plate, at that region point, was going to 'give' quite substantially. This part of the connecting plates is on a 'fragile' bend/kink/edge.

A buoy near the Alaskan islands has sensed wave height variation/increase and is being monitored for possible tsunami (not large) affectation.

More in my diary, but will resist hammering this thread with it wink

Here is a link to the USGS Fiji M5.8 response page. So far one person in the north island (Savusavu) has noted a magnitude of approx 3.

response reports to Fiji M5.8

I am trying to find out if there is any possibility of tsunami.
I hope all are safe there.

I just back from Fiji on Monday. Nothing shaking out there then except the kooks looking at 10ft Cloudbreak from their long boat

They certainly were strong earthquakes Mat.
This region is one which has been a very strong 'sticking' point with me for the last 2 weeks or so.
These quakes were very deep, so hopefully they won't have had as bad an impact as they would have if they were shallow.

Hey guys..for those who may be following my blog..I am rearranging it slightly, into a 72 hour block instead of 48 hours. I'm finding I've had less time to cater for the 48 hour blocks I've been doing lately.
I should have the next post up around 'lunchtime' today.
Cheers, Duck.

Just a short note - my strong feelings for the California region experiencing multiple tremors and larger quakes has materialized. They are centring near a populated area and an airport.
This must be very unnerving for the communities there. I feel that there will be many more smaller releases and some more M4+'s unfortunately.
I will continue to make any comments on this region on my blog - Sentir La Terre

This is a serious warning, no doubt about it.

210 in california alone in 24 hours, some nig ones in central America too.

The San Andreas fault has been 'quiet' for a while now, definitely due for a big one given the delay.

TS cool

Thought I'd post this link for you, if you are interested in seismometer/seismographs.
This one is ABC7 news (US) livecam for Los Angeles, California.
Let's hope that all stay safe in this region.

Hello smile

Some of you might find this interesting;



California may just be in for a larger quake depending on whether the swarm of quakes continue, i.e. more smaller quakes releasing built up pressure is better than none and one big one.

Oh boy..the Philippines quakes will not let up at the moment.
This is some serious plate movement. My gut feeling has been that this region was going to see some substantial movements. Let's hope this behaviour settles down very soon.

Hope you don't mind me jotting a note here re: my blog.
If you are following my blog (Sentir La Terre), there is a temporary glitch with it (and many others) at the moment - so cannot post anything. Cheers.

The tremors I have been feeling may occur are materializing around the south central, south east and west of OZ.
Off shore NSW has just experienced and M3.5.
The off shore tremors popping up around the south and south east of Oz are occuring along the edges of the sea bed, where it drops to deeper waters.
We may see more of these movements (apart from all the inland tremors) in weeks to come.

Scientists say last year's earthquake in Japan has greatly increased the pressure of the magma chamber underneath Mount Fuji.

Based on the tectonic movements caused by the two earthquakes in March 2011, the researchers estimated about 1.6 megapascals of pressure, equivalent to atmospheric pressure of 15.8 kilograms per square centimetre, has been placed on the magma chamber.

Hi all wink
While I was 'sifting' through some info on the impact of Alaska's large EQ today, I came across some personal accounts of community members who endured the Prince William Sound, Alaska, earthquake of March 27, 1964. (M9.2)
vibrationdata.com
These incredible accounts are fascinating, but really unnerving at the same time. The quake must have been frightening to live through.

That was the one that had the massive Tsunami wasn't it?
