Scientists puzzled by recent flurry of quakes in central Idaho

The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded a sequence of quakes rumbling the area, the largest of them being a 4.1-magnitude quake on Thursday, a 4.9 quake on Sunday and a 4.4 on Monday. Smaller quakes have also been recorded, including five on Monday ranging from 2.5 to 3.3 in magnitude. Three of the quakes took place within a 40-minute span starting about 9:12 p.m. Monday. The quakes have ranged from about 6 to 15 miles northwest of Challis in lightly populated Custer County. “People are asking: ‘Is this going to lead to a bigger earthquake?’” said Benz, based in Golden, Colo. “And the answer is we simply don’t know.” He noted the earthquakes are in the same region as Idaho’s largest recorded quake, a 6.9-magnitude in 1983 near Borah Peak, Idaho’s tallest peak at 12,667 feet. Linda Lumpkin, a dispatcher for the Custer County Sheriff’s Office in Challis, said she personally is expecting another big one, but residents in general have become accustomed to the recent temblors.

6.9 magnitude earthquake strikes remote Bouvet Island in South Atlantic

A 6.9 earthquake shook the remote Bouvet Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean Tuesday Morning. Bouvet Island (Norwegian: Bouvetøya, is an uninhabited subantarctic volcanic island and dependency of Norway located in the South Atlantic Ocean at 54°25.8′S 3°22.8′ECoordinates: 54°25.8′S 3°22.8′E. It lies at the southern end of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and is the most remote island in the world, approximately 2,200 kilometers (1,400 mi) south-southwest of the coast of South Africa and approximately 1,700 kilometers (1,100 mi) north of the Princess Astrid Coast of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica.

Third earthquake strikes Nicaragua in less than a week: fears rampant of ‘big one’

A third earthquake in less than a week struck Nicaragua early on Monday morning, shaking buildings in the capital, Managua, though there were no immediate reports of damage. An official at Nicaragua’s seismological authority said the quake magnitude was 5.6, but its shallow depth had imparted a greater impact. The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck some 6 km (4 miles) northwest of Managua at a depth of 14 km. The USGS initially registered the quake at magnitude 5.1. Emergency services in Managua were checking for signs of impact, but did not immediately report any damage. Earthquakes also struck Nicaragua on Thursday and Friday last week. The latter, of magnitude 6.6, was felt as far away as El Salvador and Costa Rica.

Note: There are many earthquakes around our planet every day. I just saw these as unusual.

Freaky UK earthquake.

3.2-magnitude quake hit Rutland at 7am and could be felt 27 miles away
It is the most powerful earthquake to hit the region in 13 years
No damage or injuries have been reported

The Midlands were wracked by an earthquake today - the biggest the region has felt in 13 years.

The quake, rated 3.2 out of 10 on the Richter scale, hit at 7.07am and was felt up to 28 miles from the epicentre in the Melton Mowbray area of Rutland.

However, it was not powerful enough to cause any damage.

Yet Another.

April 18, 2014 – MEXICO – A powerful magnitude-7.2 earthquake shook central and southern Mexico on Friday, sending panicked people into the streets, where broken windows and debris fell, but there were no early reports of major damage or casualties. The U.S. Geological Survey said it was centered northwest of the Pacific resort of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for the Easter holiday. It was felt across at least a half-dozen states and Mexico’s capital, where it shook for at least 30 seconds. Around the region, there were reports of isolated and minor damage, such as fallen fences, trees and broken windows. Chilpancingo, capital of the southern state of Guerrero, where the quake was centered, reported a power outage, but service was restored after 15 minutes. In Acapulco, 59-year-old Enedina Ramirez Perez was having breakfast, enjoying the holiday with about 20 family members, when her hotel started to shake. “People were turning over chairs in their desperation to get out, grabbing children, trampling people,” the Mexico City woman said. “The hotel security was excellent and starting calming people down. They got everyone to leave quietly.”

The quake struck 170 miles (273 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City, where people fled high rises and took to the streets, many in still in their bathrobes and pajamas on their day off. “I started to hear the walls creak and I said, ‘Let’s go,’” said Rodolfo Duarte, 32, who fled his third-floor apartment. “This is really strong,” said Gabriel Alejandro Hernandez Chavez, 45, an apartment building guard in central Mexico City. “And I’m accustomed to earthquakes.” The USGS initially calculated the quake’s magnitude at 7.5, but later downgraded it to 7.2. It said the quake was centered 22 miles (36 kilometers) northwest of the town of Tecpan de Galeana, and was 15 miles (24 kilometers) deep. In many cases of earthquakes in Mexico, it can take time to receive word from remote areas near the epicenter, where damage could be more extensive. No one answered the phone at the city hall for Tecpan de Galeana. Mexico City itself is vulnerable even to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit.

6.7 magnitude earthquake strikes S of Port Hardy, Canada


A few Witness reactions:

Witness location : Kyuquot (Canada) (29 km N from epicenter) good 20 seconds of vigorous shaking. The whole village evacuated to higher ground. No Tsunami.

Witness location : (Canada) (30 km E from epicenter)My persona favorite![
Was having a second glass of wine - thought, at first, that I better not have any more - then realized that it was an earthquack - (better stop the wine) - lasted about ten to fifteen seconds. Noticed almost immediately that many, many folks on Facebook around northern Vancouver Island, reported feeling the quake.

Witness location : Tahsis (Canada) (62 km E from epicenter)
I was wondering why my animals were acting so strange all day Tuesday and Wednesday, running around the house and then clinging to me and scared to go out side. The one we had two years ago there was no signs from the animals at all. I did not feel the after shocks at all.
Please have your quake supplies ready!!
