  • Vanity-Any East coasters feel the Sunday quake?

    11/09/2020 6:11:09 PM PST · by ValleyofHope · 28 replies
    I was just wondering if anyone else experienced it. I felt it here, shook the whole house for about 15-20 seconds. Had many people on social media posting about it. One stupid post from a lefty "does anyone know what caused it?" I thought my washing machine was off balance; my husband was in the basement, said he felt nothing, (but that's the story of his life! LOL)

    A 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Aegean Sea off Greece and Turkey on Friday, according to the United States Geological Survey. At least 4 people were killed in the quake, according to Turkey’s health minister. The city of Izmir in Turkey has been particularly badly hit with reports of at least 20 building destroyed, cars being crushed and people in the streets following the quake. The earthquake has also caused damage on the Greek island of Samos in the Aegean sea.

    A powerful earthquake has struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos, officials said. The 7.0 magnitude tremor, about 17km (11 miles) off the coast of western Izmir province, was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. There was no word on casualties but images from the Turkish city of Izmir showed buildings that had collapsed. An earthquake that struck Izmir in 1999 killed about 17,000 people. Reports said Friday's quake was also felt on the Greek island of Crete. Video on social media showed people searching through the...
  • 5.0 Magnitude Earthquake 46 km SW of Abhar, Iran, 10/24/2020 11.:34 UTC, depth 10 km: Israel striking another Iranian target?

    Noticed this morning that there was a 5.0 magnitude earthquake at at depth of 10 km (6.21 miles, pretty shallow), 46 km or 28.58 miles SW of Abhar, Iran. I have noticed, likely as well as many of you, my dear FReeper friends, who keep a close eye on earthquakes, that oftentimes such temblors are actually not temblors, but powerful military strikes against an enemy. These are picked up by seismographs and via satellite monitors and deemed tectonic movements, but they can also indicate that a military target has been selected and neutralized with all due prejudice. It is my...

    Video at URL. Lots more hotspots occurred yesterday along the New Madrid fault zone, stretching down into Louisiana. I believe he first noticed hot spots occurring on the New Madrid on 10/4. Also hot spots occurring at the Washibngton Idaho border. Dutchsinse believes that hot spots appearing on the Short Infra Red spectrum is an indication of seismic stress could be an early indicator of earthquakes.

    Video at URL.. Swarm of Hotspots popping up on New Madrid seismic zone. Also hot spots on Wabash seismic zone. DEW (directed energy weapon) pointed at the New Madrid zone. Also examines some hot spots in NY and IL. Issued a watch for the New Madrid for the next 7 days. Says the DEW signature can either be a HOAX in the official government data, or a mistake or the real thing. Says a mistake is kind of ruled out by the presense of the hot spots in the same location. Leaving hoax or the real thing.
  • USGS says there is a 1-in-300 chance that the current Salton Sea earthquake swarm will be followed by a magnitude 7 or higher

    The desert near the Salton Sea continue to tremble as a swarm of small earthquakes that started Wednesday continued into Thursday. The swarm slowed down Thursday, but at least four earthquakes of magnitude 3 or larger were recorded in the first seven hours of the day, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The swarm is taking place in the Brawley seismic zone, a predominantly extensional tectonic zone that connects the southern terminus of the San Andreas Fault with the Imperial Fault in Southern California. The area has seen swarms in the past in which they remain active for as many...
  • Strange Precariously Balanced Rocks Provide Earthquake Forecasting Clues

    Precariously balanced rocks (PBRs) are formations found throughout the world where a slender boulder is balanced precariously on a pedestal boulder. They form as blocks preserved on cliffs, or when softer rocks erode and leave the harder rocks behind. They can also form when landslides or retreating glaciers deposit them in strange positions. Despite their delicate balancing act, many PBRs — like the Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire, or Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona — have survived earthquake shaking over thousands of years. They can therefore tell us the upper limit of earthquake shaking that has occurred since they were first...

    A small earthquake rattled the Florida Panhandle this morning, according to data from the United States Geological Survey. USGS data shows the magnitude 4.0 quake happened just after 11 a.m. Eastern time and was centered about two miles northwest of Mount Carmel, Florida, a town just north of Pensacola along the Florida-Alabama border. A 4.0-magnitude quake on the Richter scale is considered a “light” earthquake with noticeable shaking of indoor objects and rattling noises, but zero to minimal damage.

    Early readings of the Tuesday phenomenon from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) recorded a magnitude 6.5 earthquake off the shore of Atacama, Chile. The center's Twitter account revealed that the earthquake struck some 129 kilometers southwest of the Chilean city of Copiapó. Initial seismograph readings were revised from magnitude 6.3 to magnitude 6.5 within the first hour after the event. Spanish-language testimonials spanning more than 600 kilometers from the quake's epicenter have claimed the quake was noticeable and on the stronger side.

    (WWJ) After people all over metro Detroit reported feeling the ground shake, it's been confirmed that there was an earthquake Friday in metro Detroit. (Note from Maddie: Monroe is NOT Metro Detroit, but whatever) According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 3.4 magnitude was recorded at 6:55 p.m., just off shore in Lake Erie. The precise location of the epicenter was 41.904°N 83.315°W, according to USGS. That's a little less than 2 miles south-southeast of Detroit Beach, an unincorporated community in Monroe County.

    SAN DIEGO -- With counts of COVID-19 patients now rising rapidly just north of California's border with Mexico, hospital executives here are asking federal officials to move "immediately" to screen the tens of thousands of people crossing every day from densely populated Tijuana, a city of 2 million people, and other parts of the Baja peninsula.Chief executives of two major California healthcare systems sent a sent a letter late Tuesday to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. They worry their systems will be overrun, not only from local San Diego cases, but from people who traverse the border unknowingly...

    USGS ^ | August 10, 2020
    A swarm of earthquakes beneath the Salton Sea began on August 10, 2020. The largest earthquake that has occurred, as of this release, is a magnitude 4.6 at 8:56 AM PDT on August 10. This earthquake and the associated swarm are located approximately 8 miles from the southern end of the San Andreas Fault. This area has also seen swarms in the past – most recently, in 2001, 2009, and 2016. Past swarms have remained active for 1 to 20 days, with an average duration of about a week. During this earthquake swarm, the probability of larger earthquakes in this...
  • Rare 'boomerang' earthquake observed along Atlantic Ocean fault line

    During large earthquakes, the breaking of rock can spread down the fault line. Now, an international team of researchers have recorded a 'boomerang' earthquake, where the rupture initially spreads away from initial break but then turns and runs back the other way at higher speeds. The team, led by scientists from the University of Southampton and Imperial College London, report their results today in Nature Geoscience. While large (magnitude 7 or higher) earthquakes occur on land and have been measured by nearby networks of monitors (seismometers), these earthquakes often trigger movement along complex networks of faults, like a series of...
