Australia and Indonesia

How about a look at that Near Australia edge of the Ring of Fire? “What’s happened lately” where those pesky Indonesian volcanos sporadically cause a little ice age?

Alaska and California getting some action. Lots of small ones.

Action Closer to Me

As I live in California, it makes it easier for me if I keep them in the list where I can see what’s shaking near me.

Looks like a little more fresh action in Baja and the rest of the place is still shaky.

Because I want to know if it starts to blow it’s top…

    Hey

    Your graphics seem to be missing all of the many after-quakes that Christchurch New Zealand has been experiencing since its big one of 7.1 on $th September.

    In the last three days it has had 26 quakes most over 3, and there were 1 over 4.4 on Thursday, 2 on Friday (including a 4.6) and 1 of 4.3 so far today (and it is only 2 pm) so there could be more

    The graphs come straight from the USGS, so I don’t know what they might have broken. Perhaps N.Z. isn’t focused on forwarding the data to the USGS right now?

  3. Margaret says:

    thanks — I have left a comment on their website as well.

    I can’t think why we wouldn’t be doing business as usual. After all we have our own website up and running — and we have had the systems and processes to not only survive a 7.1 earthquake with no loss of life, but to have over 96% of businesses in Christchurch back up and running as normal. There is ongoing repairs etc, but things are so under control that it is not even making our nightly news.
