Japan scientists detect rare, deep-Earth tremor

August 24, 2016

"Miami (AFP) - Scientists who study earthquakes in Japan said Thursday they have detected a rare deep-Earth tremor for the first time and traced its location to a distant and powerful storm.

 
The findings, published in the US journal Science, could help experts learn more about the Earth's inner structure and improve detection of earthquakes and oceanic storms.
 
The storm in the North Atlantic was known as a "weather bomb," a small but potent storm that gains punch as pressure quickly mounts.
 
Groups of waves sloshed and pounded the ocean floor during the storm, which struck between Greenland and Iceland.
 
Using seismic equipment on land and on the seafloor that usually detects the Earth's crust crumbling during earthquakes, researchers found something they had not detected before -- a tremor known as an S wave microseism.
 
Microseisms are very faint tremors.
 
Another kind of tremor, known as P waves, or primary wave microseisms, can be detected during major hurricanes.
 
P waves are fast-moving, and animals can often sense them just before an earthquake hits.
 
The elusive S waves, or secondary waves, are slower, and move only through rock, not liquid. Humans feel them during earthquakes."

"GREAT FALLS -

A mild earthquake shook an area in western Wyoming on Saturday afternoon.
 
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 4.8 magnitude earthquake was centered about 5.2 miles east-northeast from Bondurant, Wyoming, and about 85 miles east-southeast of Rexburg, Idaho.
 
The earthquake was recorded at a depth of about 6.2 miles.
 
Hundreds of people reported feeling the quake across Wyoming and into Idaho, according to the USGS website.
 
There have been no reports of injuries or damage.
 
Dr. Bob Smith of the University of Utah told Planet Jackson Hole: “It shook for almost 10 minutes. This is an area [near Bondurant] of relatively low seismicity … it is unusual.”
 
The Federal Emergency Management Agency and US Geological Survey classify Wyoming as having a very high seismic hazard.

The 7.1 quake struck at a depth of 55km, about 130km northeast of Te Araroa. Photo / File

 

"Civil Defence officials have issued a tsunami warning following a 7.1 quake that shook North Island this morning.

 
The quake hit at 4.37am, around 100km northeast of the East Cape settlement of Te Araroa, at a depth of 55km.
 
Shortly after 6am a potential tsunami threat was upgraded to a warning by Civil Defence.
 
Those living in coastal areas should be aware tsunami currents and surges were possible.
 
They asked people to listen to radio and TV for further updates and follow the instructions of their local Civil Defence authorities.
 
The warning covers the East coast of the North Island, including Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty and the upper South Island.
 
Civil Defence has had it confirmed a tsunami was generated at East Cape, with a wave measuring 30cm around 6am.
 
"Tsunami activity will continue for several hours and the threat must be regarded as real until this warning is cancelled," Civil Defence said in a statement.
 
People living along Gisborne district's coastline are being told by local Civil Defence authorities to go to higher ground or as far inland as possible.
 
Tairawhiti Civil Defence said people should take their radios with them and listen to further instructions and advice from Civil Defence."
snip
The Fire Service central communications centre says it's had no emergency calls.
 
WeatherWatch described the series of quakes, which began with the 7.1 magnitude shortly after 4.30am and followed with a series of moderate and weak quakes over a span of about 20 minutes as a "rolling earthquake."
 
"The quake was so strong it was felt in Wellington too - and some reports were trickly in from the South Island as we wrote this," said head analyst Philip Duncan."
 
Plenty of Aucklanders felt the quake, something Duncan said was unusual.
 
East coast residents in the Coromandel and the Hawke's Bay also reported being waken by the shaking.
 
People in the above/ coastal areas should:
1. Stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries, including boating activities) 
2. Stay off beaches and shore areas
3. Do not go sightseeing
4. Share this information with family, neighbours and friends
5. Listen to the radio and/or TV for updates
6. Follow instructions of local civil defence authorities"

Uncensored commentary from a local over a couple of days:

"What a surprise..... Civil Defence holds a nationwide Tsunami Drill Exercise yesterday to cope with a big quake in the Kermadec region.
There's just been a 5.8 NE of Gisborne.Fuck me.
Total surprise.
This is all bullshit of the highest quality.
The day after a major offshore quake drill, there's a major quake offshore in the region they selected.
It's all fucking BULLSHIT.
ANOTHER quake in the tsunami exercise area, this one much bigger, a little while ago. Tsunami emergency team "activated". This is so blatantly a manufactured event. There can be no coincidence, just like the Canterbury sequence.

Pretty convenient KMRIA.  So then do you blame us for being a tad concerned when they held that one in our area called "Cascade Rising" a couple months ago?

Okay I'm going to play devil's advocate (perhaps angels advocate in this case) and suggest that if there are relatively small quakes happening that seem to be artificially induced, then perhaps this is being done to let a little steam out of the pressure cooker in order to avoid one massive fault slip that causes total destruction.

In my mind, if these quakes were induced to cause harm and death, they wouldn't bother with the drills.

But it's not like the government is going to come out and tell us they are expecting the big one any day now, and that they are triggering these quakes to let off the steam. So they pre-position resources and run drills under the guise of training exercises in the hopes to reduce the fallout of these smaller quakes they produce.

Just a thought.

Record-tying Oklahoma earthquake felt as far away as Arizona

Sept 3, 2016

Ken Miller

 

"OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A record-tying earthquake in the edge of Oklahoma's key energy-producing areas rattled the Midwest from Nebraska to North Texas on Saturday, and likely will bring fresh attention to the practice of disposing oil and gas field wastewater deep underground.

 
The United States Geological Survey said a 5.6 magnitude earthquake happened at 7:02 a.m. Saturday in north-central Oklahoma, on the fringe of an area where regulators had stepped in to limit wastewater disposal. That temblor matches a November 2011 quake in the same region.
 
An increase in magnitude 3.0 or greater earthquakes in Oklahoma has been linked to underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas production.  <<iow fracking
 
The Oklahoma Corporation Commission, which since 2013 has asked wastewater-well owners to reduce disposal volumes in parts of the state, directed about 35 wells within an approximately 500-square-mile area around the epicenter to shut down within seven to 10 days because of previous connections between the injection of wastewater and earthquakes.  
 
"All of our actions have been based on the link that researchers have drawn between the Arbuckle disposal well operations and earthquakes in Oklahoma," spokesman Matt Skinner said Saturday. "We're trying to do this as quickly as possible, but we have to follow the recommendations of the seismologists, who tell us everything going off at once can cause an (earthquake)."
 
People in Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri; Chicago; Gilbert, Arizona; Fayetteville and Little Rock, Arkansas; Des Moines, Iowa; Memphis, Tennessee; and Big Lake in southwest Texas, all reported feeling the earthquake. Dallas TV station WFAA tweeted that the quake shook their studios, too.
 
Pawnee County Emergency Management Director Mark Randell said no buildings collapsed in the town of 2,200 about nine miles southeast of the epicenter. "We've got buildings cracked," Randell said. "Most of it's brick and mortar, old buildings from the early 1900s."

Magnitudes for Oklahoma Earthquakes Shift Upward

Sept 7, 2016

 

 

"Revisions follow standard USGS re-analysis

 

The U.S. Geological Survey is updating the official magnitude of the September 3, 2016 Pawnee, Oklahoma earthquake to Mw 5.8 (from 5.6), making it Oklahoma’s largest recorded earthquake to date.
 
 
 
The magnitude revision is based on further in-depth analysis of seismic recordings. Changes in estimated magnitude for an earthquake are common in the hours-to-days following the event, as more data are analyzed in greater detail than is possible in the first minutes after the earthquake occurs.
 
 
 
Concurrently, the USGS is also updating the official magnitude of the November 6, 2011 Prague, Oklahoma earthquake to Mw 5.7 (from 5.6). Questions regarding their relative size prompted a re-analysis of both earthquakes. Both updates are the result of comprehensive studies of the long-period, globally-recorded seismic data for these earthquakes, using consistent approaches and datasets for each event.
 
 
 
“USGS analyses indicate that the two earthquakes are very similar in size - to within typically-cited uncertainties of 0.1 magnitude units,” said Gavin Hayes, USGS research geophysicist. “However, the 2016 Pawnee event is slightly larger than the Prague earthquake in 2011,” noted Hayes."

Italy’s devastating earthquake has caused the Apennine Mountains to grow by up to 4cm in parts, research has found.

The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) said data from satellites and GPS stations show the range was permanently changed by the magnitude 6.2 quake because of movement along fault lines lying beneath.

Two Major Quakes strike the South Pacific last night within 250km's of Each Other and only 20 Mins Apart - 6.9 & 6.4

Posted By: RumorMail [send E-Mail]

Date: Monday, 26-Sep-2016 11:20:53

No tsunami warnings have been issued for these two quakes.

An incredible double strike hit a 250km area of the South Pacific last night.

A magnitude 6.9 - 99km NNE of Ndoi Island, Fiji and a magnitude 6.4 - 125km WNW of Neiafu, Tonga struck along the Tonga Trench last night just twenty minutes apart.

Luckily there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.

Last night’s double strike was the 11th and 12th major quake of September and brings the total for the year to 104

September has recorded 8 major quakes in the last 8 day's.

We can expect more major quakes in the coming week as a large coronal hole on the sun turns to face the earth, coronal holes are thought by many experts to influence seismic activity here on earth, see below.

Nearly 200 earthquakes hit Salton Sea amid quake swarm

Sept. 27, 2016

Shelby Grad

 

post-5-0-79481700-1475006816_thumb.jpg

 

"Nearly 200 small earthquakes — including three of a magnitude greater than 4 — struck the Salton Sea area over the last day or so.

 
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the swarm of quakes started early Monday morning and continued into the evening. Quakes measuring 4.3 and 4.2 magnitude occurred Monday night.  Nine of the quakes measure greater than 3.0.
 
Many of the quakes were centered near Bombay Beach. They were felt in a relatively small area around the Salton Sea, according to the USGS.
 
Swarms of small to moderate earthquakes are fairly common in the area. In 2009, the Salton Sea saw a swarm of more than 200 small quakes."

Risk of big earthquake on San Andreas fault rises after quake swarm at Salton Sea

 

The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes — three measuring above magnitude 4.0 — began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded.

 

The temblors were not felt over a very large area, but they have garnered intense interest — and concern — among seismologists. It marked only the third time since earthquake sensors were installed there in 1932 that the area had seen such a swarm, and this one had more earthquakes than the events of 2001 and 2009.

 

The quakes occurred in one of California’s most seismically complex areas. They hit in a seismic zone just south of where the mighty San Andreas fault ends. It is composed of a web of faults that scientists fear could one day wake up the nearby San Andreas from its long slumber.

Keep an eye on Greece. As of this time there have been a minimum of three M5+ earthquakes today in Rodotopion.

Here's the most recent. 5.0 earthquake, 9km WNW of Rodotopion, Greece. 2016-10-16 05:21:02 at epicenter (23m ago, depth 10km). http://j.mp/2e4s3fI

S0 tweeted this tonight:

Way too many quakes in Greece near the western edge of the fault system on alert. We are looking at Rodotopion, Greece - foreshock potential

Woooow, Ben's group has been the fore-runner for the Quake Predictions and its ability to zoom in has gone up notches...thanks for chipping in the Tweet info, kandy!

So glad that I chipped in for the founding of their Prediction App....

There's a very shameful reality existing in the Quake Prediction field in Japan......

I relayed the info about Ben and the group and app etc to legit scientists there.

Would I hear a boo?

No.

We know who sits on top of the Nationally funded Quake research group...just to get paid for doing nothing.

The friggin guy said just the other day that the Quakes could not be predicted. Just leave the friggin seat you've been warming for doing NOTHING, you idiot!!!ಠ_ಠ And shame on the government not getting rid of such idiot who just pretends to do the job in fact he has not done so what so ever for years, as far as I consider. 

Anyway for the Disaster Prediction App, I would love to see all countries buying the system when it's all ready.

It can save human lives in mass....

Unity, the unfortunate reality, there is no money in stopping disasters (and wars).

 

And if you stopped a few disasters, who would keep funding you?  You only get the $$$$ after the event, when people are more willing to cough up.

Surely so, DAR!(´∀`)∩

To start with, the Apps won't change the disaster themselves. They still happen. 

 

But from living the real life of feeling the continuous threats from quakes ALL THE TIME, it gives some break from the fear, and it's a bit of help for calming down the tension of those who are living next to volcanoes and fault lines etc, I feel.

But the info relaying infrastructures would be in question when the power and towers are down, hey...! (What's the point of it all, we may say, in the end...ROFL (≧▽≦) )

It's only a "band-aid" thing.

 

....In fact, the real natural disasters are I guess Earth conditioning itself by her breathing in and out, and we should not be stopping it if it's due in order for better health for Earth. If that's the case, we the Humans should learn to relocate more freely. (Which makes our social requirements to be changed revolutionary! )

 

But I believe that we can buy time to adjust a bit better than without any warnings.  

If that helps reduce death rates for humans and animals relocating in time, I think it'd be a good addition for the Humanity.

Better than not doing anything towards it, methinks...(・ω<)☆

You have hit the nail on the head Unity.  The secret is to live with these threats and not feel fear.  Apps don't help people feel safer, people need to change their thinking to eradicate fear itself, then it doesn't matter where they are or what happens.  Eyes open, no fear.

Tottori, Japan, 21 Oct 1407

 

M6.6

8 people injured. No death. 2000+ evacuating.

 

Apparently side sliding plates caused this quake, and people reported it was just mooooooving and moooooooving in big sways.

Tottori is an area not affected by the quakes so often within Japan but in the past cases, there was an occasion of consecutively hit by big quakes over 2 days. So they are monitoring the situation closely...
