There was a 6.6 a bit up and to the left that was not showing in the original close up. I’ve added a second:
A live view of Eurasia so you can see if anything happens ‘more westward’:
Some Image Captures of The Close Ups
Early in the process. The 8.9 is the big blue square closer to the island.
Later on, as the aftershocks, some up to 7.2 and dozens smaller (over 40 over a 5.x last I heard), start racking up. I find this one interesting as you can see the linear layout of this set:
Then, later on, they start “popping” all over the place. Just amazing as it’s a few hours into it and things are STILL popping…
AND we get another “Line Structure” as this set pops:
What it looked like when I commented that they looked to be getting a bit smaller:
Then, just a few minutes later, we get a 6.2 on the OTHER side of the Island along with a 6.x aftershock in the swarm … This puppy is not settling down just yet…
One shifted a bit more north where you can see the 6.6 that happened there:
Australia / New Zealand
This is a map of the Australia / Indonesia / New Zealand area:
Here is a “live view” of South America so you can watch anything “new” that develops there:
Take a look again at the Iceland Volcano Watch Metric posting. The total seismic energy line continues to go ever more vertical.
Some Volcano Stuff
http://pangea.stanford.edu/~dsinnett/Pages/Links.html has a nice collection of links to volcano monitor pages. Just click the pictures for the different volcano observatories.
The Smithsonian page:
is listing new activity in Guatemala and Kyushu, but is only updated on Wednesdays… while
claims to have an exhaustive list of observatories that does include a Filippino one. That link tells you the original site no longer exists… but assuming the rest of the links are valid, it’s still a nice list to have.
I put that link into a google search and got what I think is the new, valid, address:
FWIW, it has some nice maps and general information, but does not look to be oriented toward “breaking news”…
At any rate, there’s some volcano links, but looks like the general news is a better source for “It JUST Blew UP!”…
In comments on the Christchurch quake posting I’d noted that the Cascadia had a 4.x down at the bottom end and suggested closer watching. It’s now got a 4th quake in about as many days. Watch closely for a while… The 4.9 is almost on top of an earlier 4.8, then the two “bookends” at each end of the zone.
And remember, I have a dedicated CSZ page with closeups
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.
