Okey dokey.

Been watching several EQ recording websites today. Indonesia, Japan and Oaxaca [Mexico] came up with M4+ earthquakes after Peru's M6.7. The Global Incident Map/EQ's is not showing these quakes.

In my last post I answered 'yes' to Mad Elf's question as to whether there will be another larger [M6+] quake possibly coming up in another location. I still feel that this is a possibility. It doesn't need to come up in the same time-frame [e.g. 12-24 hours] as the large one in eastern Russia [east of Kamchatka]. Sometimes these quakes M6+ come up in three's and occasionally lots of 4's after a large quake. The energy coming off the large quakes may niggle other locations to move as well, or the energy causing the large quake may also be lurking in other locations. [my opinion only].

There was a small water disturbance with the Russian quake. Apparently there was a 6 inch increase in the water level [tide level].

Hawaii has started to come up with a bit of a run on tremors. I will relate this to the larger movement in the NW Pacific [Russia] and the activity on the western side of the U.S.A..

Now, the buoys all along the Aleutian Islands chain went off with the quake in Russia today. Sooo, I will go out on a limb here and say that I think that nearly the whole of the plate edge along this vast region may have had varying degrees of movement.

The Cascadia, as I have nattered about before, is responding to what I see as a moderately predictable pattern of feeling offshoots of energies from the western side of the U.S. and Alaska [to it's north]. There may be a possibility of an M4+ in the Cascadia region in the near term though.

Baja, California has come up with a tremor. The tremors are spotting in a southerly movement there towards the Gulf of California.

There are, of course, other tremors coming up around the globe [smaller ones]. A moderate tremor may come up somewhere to marry in with the action in the Pacific.

For now, Duck.

Have felt a couple of tremors over the last two days, here in northern Sydney. Neither was recorded on the GA website, or very obvious on the Daleh logs. I have a gut feeling there is a bit of movement all over the Sydney basin at the moment... standing by for more action in the next few weeks, Newcastle/offshore Forster or Picton? Just feeling edgy, and noticing some dogs 'going off' more than usual.

Hi perrywinkle and all.

It does not surprise me that you may be feeling some small movements perrywinkle. There have been a few recorded tremors south, SW and SE [offshore] of you in the last 7 days - see Geoscience here.

There have been/are tremor clusters in two particular locations in Oz. The current one is WA [Corrigin] and NSW [Boorowa]. Clustering is interesting, as it 'tells' me that there is ongoing fault activity [well that's pretty obvious] and a continual driver [for the period of the clusters] of energy coming in from somewhere. SA may end up coming up with several small tremors in the near future too, maybe not clustering in one location, but several spots/locations coming up with movements.

I know this will sound dippy, but I woke up suddenly very early this morning after seeing [in my dream/sleep's eye] an M5 come up in Bass Strait, or very close to or on the southern coast of Victoria. SW of Philip Island possibly. But it was a dream and hopefully that's all dippy Duck's thoughts/dream was here.

The M6 for the Pacific I was anticipating for after a 12-24 hours period from the other larger quakes in the pacific, came up east of Japan. I thought there may have been another one too in this time frame, but that hasn't happened so far [for the Pacific].

Anyway for the time being I'll leave it here, even though there is always more to natter on about.

Cheers, Duck.

Interesting activity last 48hrs or so, all over the place. Latest 2 x 6.7 near Turkey/Greece as mentioned by perrywinkle above.
Indication something big about to happen or stress relief?

Hi Mad Elf, perrywinkle and all.

The momentum for all of the current quakes appears to be 'global'. It all seemed to start [though with a minor lag to start with] with the larger quake in the NW of the Pacific [Russia] recently.

Watching the quakes currently coming up on the global maps, there appears to be a 'trend' of concerted activity in the Pacific, which then travels [seems to] west through Indonesia and across to the NE of the Indian Ocean. From there, quakes can pop up either along the Himalayas or into Pakistan [and/or surrounding countries] and through to the Mediterranean. But....sometimes, I feel, the energy causing a run of quakes like this can be from a 'push' from the southern part of the planet - up into the plates of the southern hemisphere - and in and under the southern parts of the Asian continents and the northern edges of the Mediterranean Seas. [I hope that made sense].

I actually 'knew' [felt it in my bones] that that region of Greece/Turkey was going to be the location of a larger quake. In my mind's eye I saw a triangle of sorts from the locations in the Pacific of the bigger quakes - lining up with Greece/Turkey. Sadly, the Greece/Turkey quake has taken the lives of two people and injured many more. They also got inundated on the coast by a tsunami, which has caused some flooding issues.

There may be a chance of another large quake in the mix of current movements. If this doesn't occur. it could be because the current energy creating the current quakes is being dissipated across the planet in a sort of bell-ringing effect - where the energy causing the initial larger movement/s has possibly irritated some close and distant regions -causing them to move too. If this is what is happening the energy may fizzle somewhat. Some people [and some scientists] don't believe that this can happen - but I feel that it is a possibility, though not a definite.
On the odd occasion - we can be caught by surprise by another large quake - just when we think things are settling down....

My mind's eye is tending towards Japan atm., for a possible M6 or slightly larger....but could be wrong.

For the moment, Duck.

Hi again. I meant to add to my last post just before, that the consistent activity in the Mediterranean, with all of the M4's etc., are movements associated with the large quake in Greece/Turkey today.
This may go on for some time. The location of the Russian large quake is still moving too.

Cheers, Duck.

Hi folks. I haven't fallen of the edge of the planet or left the company of your good selves. I have been really crook and a close family member passed. So my focus has been elsewhere for the last week or so.

Just having a squiz at the EQ maps of the last 24 hours till now, the energy driving the quakes is very general [across the planet] at the moment.

The U.S. offshore of Calfornia came up with the m% I thought it may finally. I was waiting for this region [SW of Eureka] to 'give' with all of the movements in the U.S., Mexico and Alaska. The next region which may come up with an M5'ish could be the Cascadia region west of Canada.

I don't know why. but I keep thinking of Haiti region. I am wondering if they may come up with an M5'ish at some point.

There was a tsunami in the Caribbean recently. The authorities don't think it was due to a quake or volcanic activity, but an underwater landslide. The behaviour of the water on the shore line was strange. Not your 'typical' tsunami as we normally see it. The pristine waters were very muddy.

Overall, the current quake activity [quake size] is rather uniform. This may be a general energy throwing itself around the planet and end up reverting back to M5's just coming up in a lesser number of regions, and/or end up with the energy setting off a decent shift somewhere with an M7'ish.

I reckon there may be a sea based quake which could be a problem waterwize [behaviour - current changing affecting the coastlines of several countries....but could be wrong.

Anyway, I am a bit out of touch at the moment due to not following and focusing on the energy movements on the planet. So I hope I can be more specific or interesting in the future.

Cheers for now, Duck.

Hi folks.

The tremor in Victoria [near Bairnsdale] 90 minutes ago was not a surprise to me. Australia has come into a slight run of tremors currently. A little earlier this arvo, we had a very slight rattle here and a picture on top of a cabinet fell and broke [glass]. Couldn't find any record of that movement on the Geoscience maps, but it definitely was a small movement. QLD came into tremor picture yesterday and Tassie is the only state in Australia at the moment which hasn't recorded a tremor.
In a recent post I said I had a crazy dream that Bass Strait may come up with a tremor....it may still happen [maybe not in the current time frame - but this year?]

Yet again, many of the larger tremors [of all the movements across the planet at the moment] occurring across the globe are averaging M4.5. To my knowledge, there has been nothing larger than that [general size] in the last 10 hours or so.

I am currently looking for land in the volcanic regions of Victoria [SE]. May not move till next year. I would like to pick a location where I can set up my own seismo. I do have a location in mind, but am waiting for land [& house] to become available. Should be fun - though might become obsessed with it smile

Anyway, still not very focused this week, but I hope all will be back on track from this weekend.

Cheers for now, Duck.

Hi Perrywinkle and all.

Been a while, but I'll do a mini catch-up.

Australia;

We Have come into a new period recently/currently where tremors are popping up in nearly every state and territory. I said a while back that I felt [well actually had a silly dream] that an M5 may come up in Bass Strait. Of course this hasn't happened, but an M5 came up in the Sturt Creek [WA] instead. A tremor came up near Bass Strait [M2] near Foster [Vic] - so this region may be hinting at another movement at some point....?

It was a matter of time before Australia was going to feel another M5. Given the ongoing activity around the plate edges of Australia, I was waiting for an M5 to come up. Some of our tremors have been in less than 'usual' locations, and yet some have come up in 'regular' [those usually prone to the odd tremor] locations.

In a previous post I mentioned the Bairnsdale 'tremor' [Vic] was one which didn't surprise me. But, apparently this 'tremor' was a quarry/other explosion. A bit disconcerting for the folks who felt it as an M2 and reported it though.

The Merino [Vic] tremor is reasonably close to Mount Gambier [SA]. It was also getting somewhat close to Bass Strait.

A curious initial recording of an M3'ish came up recently offshore near the Dampier Peninsula [WA NW]. Not long after its recording it went off the map.


We don't want any tremors in Vic/NSW Alps which may help set off more avalanches.


Other regions;

Yet to do a catch up, but am aware of the larger [M6'ish] quakes and other smaller ones which have occurred recently. The Kazakhstan larger quake was quite dangerous.

The Pacific may come up with a M6 - general feeling is for the western Pacific from Kermadecs [north of NZ] - including a potential spot anywhere including the countries and trenches on the western side of the Pacific up through to Kamchatka [Russia].

For now, Duck.

Hi folks.

Well an M6 did come up on the western side of the Pacific [Philippines] as I felt it would. I didn't specifically state that it would be the Philippines of course, but I knew that a larger quake was going to come up somewhere in the west.

There was a curious 'line' of M5's from the western side of the Pacific - all the way through to near the eastern Mediterranean in the last 24 hours. It looked like they may have been somewhat related in energy drive.

The western coastal region of Canada snuck in a few tremors and one M5 western Oregon as well. I feel that the Cascadia general region has responded with tremors, as I have talked about in the past, with the energy possibly being driven in by the west coast of the U.S. and Alaska - sort of like pressured between these two regions.

Australia is still coming up with tremors - with the latest one in NSW [Sydney region].
I have seen some folks in my region [on FB] mentioning they felt a small movement around here, and I would have to agree with them. Though I don't think it was obvious enough to be recorded formally.

The New Madrid general region in the U.S. is still niggling with tremors. The San Andreas and her sister faults are irritated currently. An M5 may possibly come up offshore of the western U.S. at some point. For some reason my mind's-eye is drawn to Nevada for an M4'ish...??

The Scottish Highlands had an M3 recently, which was the largest tremor they have had for a while.

For now, Duck.

Hi folks.

The EQ activity has been a bit all over the place at the moment. There seems to be a generalized affect across the globe at the moment too - meaning the regular locations for quakes are coming up - e.g. Japan, Alaska, Indonesia [including NE Indian Ocean locations],around the Pacific Islands, South America, western China, and so on.

The Atlantic Ridge has thrown up a few M5's lately. For some reason the Canary Islands region is sticking in my mind for an M4+...?

There was another meteotsunami [??], this time in Brazil and Uruguay a few days ago. The behaviour of the sea retreat was similar to the precursor of a tsunami. Even when the sea came back in again, it seemed to gently come back, but with a couple of curious little waves here and there. Some folks ran for their lives, thinking it was the beginning of a problem tsunami, but that wasn't the case - thank goodness. It had not been attributed [by authorities] as quake related, but can't come up with an explanation for it [to my knowledge]. If I remember correctly, there was a quake [not large] to the far SSE of that location/s recently. For some obscure reason, I am thinking there may be some volcanic activity or shelf activity possibly in that SSE region....???

The U.S. is still rocking along with many small tremors on the e=western side, with Yellowstone region still coming up with tremors. I was watching the Old Faithful geyser recently [around the times of the tremors] and it was puffing like a steam train - along with other geysers letting of steam in the region. It looked like there was quite an amount of energy lurking in the overall Yellowstone region.

The St. Lawrence waterway [border of eastern Canada and the U.S.], which I have talked about way in the past, started to niggle with tremors again recently. They may go on to feel another small tremor.

I think the western Pacific may come up with an M6+ soon. It may be around the Japanese Island regions or near Vanuatu/Fiji/eastern Indonesia. Another decent tremor may come up in the eastern Mediterranean. Gibraltar may come up with an M3.

Australia has not finished its latest run of tremors. There have been a few tremors close to shores in Queensland [specifically], which I see as a curiosity in that most of our tremors are on land. There has been , therefore, a minor increase in offshore/coast tremors in the last 30 days. I still have the corner of my eye on Bass Strait and/or the Great Australian Bight.

But if course, I could be wrong with what I've anticipated [above]. Will wait and see if my 'radar' is back on track at all. wink

For now, old Duck.
