Post #3 for today blush
The regions between (and around) Scone and Tamworth (NSW) may be showing some fault jitter signs again. If any movement does occur there, it may be an M2 or M3....just a feeling folks.

Just as I suspected for NSW, an M3.3 has just occurred.
It happened about 50-100 kms SE of where I said it would, in the Maitland, Hunter region.
Here's the Geoscience record of it.

Here's a seimo reading - here

Taiwan has also experienced an M4, like I felt it would too.

For the moment, Duck.

Just a wonderin'...did anyone else just feel a sudden jolt? I was standing in the bathroom with the door shut (no one else in the house and no wind/breeze outside) when the the door rattled for a split second (as did the house). I also felt a tiny jolt last night - late.
Just had a look on the Gippsland seismo and one north of Melbourne, they seemed to correspond with a mild spike each.

For the moment, Duck.

Just to add to the above, there were no bird sounds and an erie stillness before this and currently there are no bird sounds. Can't see any birds here as I type for the moment anyway...

Well folks, I was right when I said we have just had a tremor.
See Geoscience report;
here.

Them birdies don't lie and my intuition was eating at me.

Cheers Petros.
It was a strange'ish feeling. It was as if an elephant had hit it's head underneath the house. Ok, that sounded a bit silly smile. But it wasn't like a quake/tremor with build up and a tapering rumble. It reminded me of the suddenness of Lilydale's EQ recently.....without explosive sound.
Cheers, Duck.

I am currently filming the tremor running through eastern Melbourne atm. This is a follow on movement, which I have been expecting to occur and may settle or may be a precursor to another tremor.
I'll show you after I have edited it.

I am having huge issues with my internet atm. So, I will upload my vid of the movements, I mentioned above, tomorrow.
I'm probably lucky to be able to load this post tonight mad
Frustrated Duck.

Updating info on the China earthquakes here - Earthquake Report site

For now, Duck.

Ok...here's some of the video I took yesterday regarding the ongoing mild earth vibrations and some movements we were still experiencing out this way after the short, sharp M2 in Berwick on the 10th August.
It's not 'gripping' viewing :), but it shows what I gabble on about sometimes.
Cheers, Duck.

A couple of links re:

" Mislocated earthquake north of New Zealand"

"Very Strong earthquake North Pacific Ocean on August 12, 2013"

No buoys are currently in event mode.
The Pacific Ocean north quake is an undersea quake, seeming to be located near 'trenches' and a semi-circular (of sorts) undersea mass - old volcano??? Maybe not, but looks a little like an old half rim of a volcano??

For the moment, Duck.

At the time I posted that info on the north Pacific Ocean M6+, I was a little suspicious that it may have been a glitch, because the USGS, Geoscience and some other agencies didn't immediately register any movements there. So, this quake can be disregarded.

The Atlantic, west of Spain/Portugal is a region I have quietly been watching for the potential of M5's/M5+'s. One has come up in the middle of the Atlantic (Mid-Atlantic Ridge) today, as have a few other smaller EQ's west of Spain/Portugal (and very close to this region) in the near past, as I felt it may.

Another region which is moving like I felt it may, is the central, lower group of the U.S. states - Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas etc..
There is a feeling that not only fault lines may be unsettled there, but that there is a possibility that the Gulf of Mexico waters are infiltrating an undermining the lands in Louisiana (sinkhole related issues). A combination of these two things (faults and water), I am guessing, may not be a good thing....?

Here's an obscure thought (nothing new for this daffy Duck...), could some of the sinkholes/land drops be because of old and new fault line activity???? I am getting a feeling that some of these occurrences may be the land giving way in splinter (off the parent fault) faults activity - some maybe previously unknown/mapped minor fault lines.....??

Anyway, the Solomon's have experienced an M5 today and I feel that some of the other islands in the region may follow suit with some movements too.
I also get a wee feeling that Japan (and region) may experience another run of moderate tremors in the short term. There may even be a considerable movement there (hope not).

Hawaii experienced the M3+ (actual M4+) yesterday. Felt that one was brewing.

For now, Duck.

Also meant to mention too, on the local front, that I have observed some ribbed clouds forming and disappearing in the NE and eastern regions of Vic this morning.

6.3 up in the Banda Sea yesterday was clearly felt in Darwin. A little bit more prolonged than most of the recent shakes up here too.

Hi Orebound.
With all the activity (EQ) in the regions above the NT (and Oz in general) that occurs on a fairly regular basis, I reckon that where you are, is one of those regions where the effects of EQ activity is the most felt in all of Oz. Though the movements are usually not on Australian land there, except for the odd one, it must still be a strange feeling to feel the earth move as a result of another country's tremors.
The region where this quake emanated from, predominantly experiences quakes at a reasonable depth from about 70kms down to the deepest depths (many hundreds of kms). A lesser percentage of their quakes are nearer the land surface - from my memory of their EQ history.
I am only guessing that if the larger quakes there were any shallower than the one recorded recently (M6 at 92kms deep), the impact of such a movement may have been more serious.
Most of the quakes in this region occur on and/or north and NE and east of the land of East Timor (including the Banda Sea). The tectonic plates there are, I believe, a more complex group, than the general Australian Plate near this region. I may be wrong here, but that's how my memory serves me for the moment smile
(I've gabbled on again blush )

Anyways, the more prolonged movement you felt may have been because of 'gradual' behaviors or a movement of an extended time vs a sudden jolt. To be recorded as a '6' though, it must have been a good old movement - better 'down stairs' than on the 'first floor' (near surface) I suppose.

For now, Duck...

I wouldn't worry about "gabbling" on, I find your postings very interesting reading. Intrigued at how your "gut feeling" seems to be able to predict quakes fairly well.

Last tremor I felt was back in September 2011, in SE Germany. Thought it was thunder at first (thunderstorms had been forecast) until the bed began to move, then I realised what it was. The lady at the front desk confirmed it next morning.

Hi Werner.
Thanks for your kind words. I was a 'nature child' as a kid and was quite attuned to changes in nature - probably more so than these days due to having a pretty busy life (family, work etc.).
I wish I could focus on this particular interest of mine 'full time', making my posts more thorough and probably more accurate too. I do miss some things, but that is because of my daily distractions and that I am certainly not always right with some of my observations.
Cheers to you smile

Also, If you have a look at this link - "Strong deep earthquake hits Maluku Islands in Indonesia, tremor even felt in Darwin" you can read some 'felt it' reports from folks in the Northern Territory.

Here's a link to a site I usually go to find some responses from locals in regards to quakes worldwide - Colombia/Pacific Ocean quake today

Lots of interruptions atm., so I 'll get back to y'all soon smile

I think near Mt. Rat in South Australia has just had a tremor - M3 or m2...

Oh hang on, I just checked this too and this may be associated with this movement (visible for the next 45 mins from now) this set of seismo readings

and...there was an M5 in the Philippines 45 minutes ago, but at 80'ish kms deep I wouldn't have thought that it may 'upset' our southern Oz seimo's as much as the link to seismo's above...

Ok...I was right. South Australia, Cleve, Eyre Peninsula has just had an M3 - see Geoscience record here
The Mt Rat seismo picked it up.
