    Should Northwest residents be worried about this week's back-to-back earthquakes?
    By Joseph Rose | The Oregonian/OregonLive 
    on April 19, 2016 at 10:50 AM, updated April 19, 2016 at 4:47 PM

    Talk about interesting (and spooky) timing.


    In a matter of a few days, a series of deadly earthquakes hit Japan and Ecuador, and New Yorker writer Kathryn Schulz won a Pulitzer for "The Really Big One," her brilliant disaster-movie-like narrative of what awaits those of us living along the Cascadia subduction zone.


    Which begs the question: Should people living in the Northwest be worried that the weekend's catastrophic Ecuador and Japan quakes – hitting magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.3, respectively – are a harbinger for the inevitable death, destruction and tsunamis that awaits us someday?

    The countries are, after all, located on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Are the ocean's tectonic plates shifting? Are the recent earthquakes connected? Good lord! Could we be next?
    Take a deep breath, says Jeroen Ritsema, a professor of geophysics at the University of Michigan.
    "There's no reason to believe they're related," Ritsema told Slate. "Sometimes earthquakes are closely clustered. Sometimes they're not."


    Even when they occur back to back, he told the online news site, they aren't necessarily caused by each other. In fact, he said, the latest quakes involved completely different tectonic plates and aren't related.


    Back-to-back earthquakes aren't all that rare, Slate Reports:


    Ritsema says magnitude 7 earthquakes similar to what struck Japan happen around the world about 15 times a year (a fraction of the more than 1.4 million smaller earthquakes that occur every year). Despite this near-monthly frequency, we tend not to hear about these larger quakes—because they don't affect people all that often.


    Similarly, 7.8-magnitude earthquakes like the one that struck Ecuador (killing at least 350 people and causing billions of dollars' worth of property damage) occur less often, but even they are not that rare, statistically speaking. Ritsema says they take place on average about once every one or two years. Again, many occur in areas where they cause little noticeable damage.


    "Sometimes these events are in the middle of the ocean, far from population centers," he says. "We detect them. We see them. We record them very well. But they don't hurt anybody so they go unnoticed by the general public."


    Ritsema says that one specific factor influences an earthquake's destructive qualities even more than its magnitude: "Location, location, location." What was unusual this week was that both quakes happened in fairly densely populated areas. As a result, they affected a large number of people and drew the attention of the world.


    "There's nothing in the past week that indicates a change in terms of large-plate tectonics," Ritsema said. "The Earth hasn't changed. This is normal Earth behavior. If you look at the long-term catalogs for earthquakes over spans of years, there's nothing really telling us that this is a cluster of events. It's just statistics."


    OK. Fine. But that magnitude-9 monster is still waiting to attack the Northwest, so some of use are going to keep hoarding cans of peaches and cream corn in our basements.

    BREAKING: More HUGE earthquakes hit the Pacific region prompting tsunami alert

    The National Tsunami Warning Center said: ”Hazardous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within 300 km of the epicentre along the coast of Vanuatu.


    A magnitude 6.9 quake struck just south-west of the country this morning - and it came just hours after Vanuata was hit by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake.


    That prompted a tsunami warning for the region.


    The first quake was centred about 60 miles southeast of the town of Santo at a depth of 6.2 miles, US Geological Survey said.


    The National Tsunami Warning Center said: ”Hazardous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within 300 km of the epicentre along the coast of Vanuatu.”


    Tremors were felt from around 9pm (GMT) and the tsunami threat has since been closed.

    7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Vanuatu – the fifth 7.0+ magnitude quake this year

    Posted on April 29, 2016by The Extinction Protocol

    April 2016 – VANUATU – A large earthquake has hit near Vanuatu, but initial fears that it could generate large tsunami waves appear to have passed. The quake was 10km deep and hit shortly after 7.30am, NZ time. It had a preliminary magnitude of 7.3, but that had since been revised to 7.0. By 9.30am NZ time the Center had updated its information to say the tsunami threat had mostly passed.


    The quake was centered about 95km southeast of the town of Santo, USGS said. A spokesman at Vanuatu’s Bauerfield International Airport in Port Vila said the quake did not feel major. “It was just a small one,” he said. The quake had not disrupted flights and the spokesman said he was not aware of any damage. Friday’s quake was the fifth this year measuring magnitude 7 or more. Only about 15 strike the planet on average every year. The biggest quakes were in Ecuador, on April 16, and Sumatra a month earlier. Both measured magnitude 7.8. More than 650 people died in the Ecuador quake. –Stuff

    Strong 6.0 magnitude earthquake rocks Mexico’s Southern Coast

    Posted on April 28, 2016by The Extinction Protocol

    April 2016 – MEXICO – A magnitude-6.0 earthquake rocked Mexico’s southern coast on Wednesday, but no injuries or damage were reported, the National Seismology Service said. “After monitoring all of the state, no effects have been detected so far from the earthquake that occurred a few minutes ago,” the Chiapas state emergency management office said in a Twitter post. The epicenter of the earthquake, which hit at 7:51 a.m., was in the Pacific about 122 kilometers (nearly 76 miles) southwest of Huixtla, a town in Chiapas, and at a depth of 20 kilometers (12.4 miles).


    The inspection protocol for natural disasters has been activated, the emergency management office said. Mexico, one of the countries with the highest levels of seismic activity in the world, sits on the North American tectonic plate and is surrounded by three other plates in the Pacific: the Rivera microplate, at the mouth of the Gulf of California; the Pacific plate; and the Cocos plate.


    The Cocos tectonic plate stretches from Colima state south and has the potential to cause the most damage since it affects Mexico City, which has a population of 20 million and was constructed over what was once Lake Texcoco. In September 2015, Mexico City’s government activated the Seismic Warning System to mark the 30th anniversary of the temblor that devastated the capital. The magnitude-8.1 earthquake that hit Mexico City on Sept. 19, 1985, was the most destructive to ever hit Mexico, killing some 10,000 people, injuring more than 40,000 others and leaving 80,000 people homeless. –LAHT

    Residents in Vienna, Austria rattled by shallow earthquake

    Posted on April 26, 2016by The Extinction Protocol

    April 2016 – AUSTRIA – A small earthquake hit Lower Austria and Vienna around Monday lunchtime, with residents feeling the impact across different districts in the city. The earthquake measurement website EMSC confirmed an earthquake struck 18 kilometers south-west of Vienna at around 12.28pm. EMSC measured the magnitude around 4.4, although the Austrian Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics said it was 4.1. Residents writing on social media confirmed feeling the earthquake, the centre of which was in Raum Alland in Lower Austria, throughout Vienna, including the 3rd, 9th, 13th, and 19th districts.


    “Short but scary”, is how Twitter user Velina Tchakarova described it. Writing on the EMSC website, witnesses described the floor and ceiling “moving some centimeters” and they felt the “chair bounce and desk move.” It is not unknown for Austria to experience small earthquakes, with the most recent one of a similar magnitude thought to have occurred in Lower Austria in 2013.  Another similar quake hit Carinthia in January 2015. Geologists warned last December, however, that the Vienna region is at risk of being hit by a strong earthquake at some point in the future.


    A seismically active fault system runs deep under the Vienna Basin geological area, which covers Vienna, Lower Austria and parts of Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Because many of the fault lines have been inactive for the last 200 or 300 years they are not thought to be hazardous. However, geologist Dr. Kurt Decker from the University of Vienna told The Local that the risk of a large-scale earthquake occurring in the Vienna region has been underestimated and that scientists must examine historical data more closely.


    “There are half a dozen known fault lines under the Vienna Basin which are moving at a very slow rate, but we believe that every 20,000 years or so they are capable of causing an earthquake on the scale of 6.0 or 7.0 on the Richter scale,” he added. –The Local

    The south is SINKING: Giant chunks of the Earth's mantle are falling off and causing quakes across the southeastern US - and more are coming, warn researchers



    • Area hit by a series of strange unexplained quakes 
    • Most recent was 2011 magnitude-5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia
    • Area should be seismically quiet as it is in middle of Earth's tectonic plate

    By MARK PRIGG FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

    The southeastern United States has been hit by a series of strange unexplained quakes - most recently, the 2011 magnitude-5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia that shook the nation's capital.



    Researchers have been baffled, believing the areas should be relatively quiet in terms of seismic activity, as it is located in the interior of the North American Plate, far away from plate boundaries where earthquakes usually occur. 

    Now, they believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth's mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.



    Researchers believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth's mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet in the affected area (shown here). They say pieces of the mantle have most likely been breaking off from underneath the plate since at least 65 million years ago. This map shows the study area in detail.


    WHAT THE MAP SHOWS 



    This map shows the study area in detail, showing various tectonic attributes of the Southeastern United States. 


    BMA = BrunswickMagnetic Anomaly, BRE = Blue Ridge Escarpment, 
    CFA = Cape Fear Arch, OS = Orangeburg Scarp 
    ETSZ = EasternTennessee Seismic Zone
    NMSZ = New Madrid Seismic Zone 
    GCSZ = Giles County Seismic Zone, 
    SCSZ = South Carolina Seismic Zone 
    CVSZ = Central Virginia Seismic Zone 
    V1 = Eocene Virginia Volcanics, 
    V2 = Jackson, Mississippi Volcanism,
    V3 = Offshore Louisiana Volcanism. 


    Seismicity is from the Virginia Tech Seismological Observatory catalog (1900–2014). 


    A new study found pieces of the mantle under this region have been periodically breaking off and sinking down into the Earth.

    This thins and weakens the remaining plate, making it more prone to slipping that causes earthquakes. 

    The study authors conclude this process is ongoing and likely to produce more earthquakes in the future.

    'Our idea supports the view that this seismicity will continue due to unbalanced stresses in the plate,' said Berk Biryol, a seismologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and lead author of the new study. 

    'The [seismic] zones that are active will continue to be active for some time.' 

    The study was published in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Solid Earth, a journal of the American Geophysical Union.


    'Based on distinct variations in the geometry and thickness of the lithospheric mantle and foundered lithosphere, we propose that piecemeal delamination has occurred beneath the region throughout the Cenozoic, removing a significant amount of reworked/deformed mantle lithosphere,' the team wrote.
    Compared to earthquakes near plate boundaries, earthquakes in the middle of plates are not well understood and the hazards they pose are difficult to quantify. 



    The new findings could help scientists better understand the dangers these earthquakes present. 

    Today, the southeastern U.S. is more than 1,056 miles from the nearest edge of the North American Plate, which covers all of North America, Greenland and parts of the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. 


    But the region was built over the past billion years by periods of accretion, when new material is added to a plate, and rifting, when plates split apart. 


    Researchers initially suspected ancient fault lines or pieces of old plates extending deep in the mantle following episodes of accretion and rifting could be responsible for earthquakes in the area.
    'This region has not been active for a long time,' Biryol said. 


    WHAT ARE TECTONIC PLATES? 

    Tectonic plates are composed of Earth's crust and the uppermost portion of the mantle. 
    Below is the asthenosphere: the warm, viscous conveyor belt of rock on which tectonic plates ride.
    Earthquakes typically occur at the boundaries of tectonic plates, where one plate dips below another, thrusts another upward, or where plate edges scrape alongside each other. 




    The world's tectonic plates: Earthquakes typically occur at the boundaries of tectonic plates, where one plate dips below another, thrusts another upward, or where plate edges scrape alongside each other.
    Earthquakes rarely occur in the middle of plates, but they can happen when ancient faults or rifts far below the surface reactivate. 


    These areas are relatively weak compared to the surrounding plate, and can easily slip and cause an earthquake.


    'We were intrigued by what was going on and how we can link these activities to structures in deeper parts of the Earth.'

     'This was an interesting finding because everybody thought that this is a stable region, and we would expect regular plate thickness,' Biryol said.

    At first, they thought the thick, old rocks could be remnants of ancient tectonic plates. 




    Shaking from the magnitude 5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia on August 23, 2011 was felt by more people than any other earthquake in U.S. history, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Researchers now believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth's mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.

    But the shapes and locations of the thick and thin regions suggested a different explanation: through past rifting and accretion, areas of the North American Plate have become more dense and were pulled downward into the mantle through gravity. 

    At certain times, the densest parts broke off from the plate and sank into the warm asthenosphere below. 
    The asthenosphere, being lighter and more buoyant, surged in to fill the void created by the missing pieces of mantle, eventually cooling to become the thin, young rock in the images.



    Volcanoes were once active in the southeastern. U.S. Mole Hill, pictured here, is a mound of volcanic rock in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia that formed from an active volcano 48 million years ago (a relatively recent event, in geological time scales).

    Cascadia Earthquake simulation anticipates potential strength

    The researchers concluded this process is likely what causes earthquakes in this otherwise stable region: when the pieces of the mantle break off, the plate above them becomes thinner and more prone to slip along ancient fault lines. 

    Typically, the thicker the plate, the stronger it is, and the less likely to produce earthquakes.


    According to Biryol, pieces of the mantle have most likely been breaking off from underneath the plate since at least 65 million years ago. 

    Because the researchers found fragments of hard rocks at shallow depths, this process is still ongoing and likely to continue into the future, potentially leading to more earthquakes in the region, he said.


    HOW THEY LOOKED INSIDE THE EARTH 


    A map of the North American Plate. Arrows show directions of its movement across Earth's surface.
    To find out what was happening deep below the surface, the researchers created 3D images of the mantle portion of the North American Plate. 


    Just as doctors image internal organs by tracing the paths of x-rays through human bodies, seismologists image the interior of the Earth by tracing the paths of seismic waves created by earthquakes as they move through the ground. 

    These waves travel faster through colder, stiffer, denser rocks and slower through warmer, more elastic rocks. 
    Rocks cool and harden as they age, so the faster seismic waves travel, the older the rocks.

    The researchers used tremors caused by earthquakes more than 2,200 miles away to create a 3D map of the mantle underlying the U.S. east of the Mississippi River and south of the Ohio River.

    They found plate thickness in the southeast U.S. to be fairly uneven – they saw thick areas of dense, older rock stretching downward and thin areas of less dense, younger rock.

    The San Andreas fault is 'locked, loaded and ready to go': Experts warn California to brace itself for a deadly earthquake

    [*]Thomas Jordan of Southern California Earthquake Centre made warning
    [*]San Andreas fault is longest in California and one of the most dangerous
    [*]Said 'springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very tight'
    [*]'Big one' could kill hundreds and cause billions of dollars of damage


    [*]Californians are being told to brace for 'the big one' - a massive earthquake that typically occurs every 400 to 600 years and could leave thousands dead or homeless.
    [*]
    An earthquake scientist has added to claims the dreaded event is overdue, warning the San Andreas fault is 'locked, loaded and ready to roll'.

    The fault is the longest in California and one of the state's most dangerous. 

    Scroll down for videos 



    An earthquake scientist has added to claims the dreaded 'big one' is overdue, warning the San Andreas fault is 'locked, loaded and ready to roll'. It could rock Los Angeles (illustrated) causing hundreds of deaths

    Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Centre, said the fault has been 'too quiet' since 1857.

    This is when the last big quake to strike a southern section rippled from Monterey County to the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles with a magnitude of 7.9 on the Richter scale.

    Speaking at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach, Mr Jordan said: 'The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight and the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it's locked, loaded and ready to go.'

    He also said other sections of the 810 mile-long (1,304km) fault are overdue for a quake too, the Los Angeles Times reported.


    The fault is the longest in California and one of the state's most dangerous.  This image shows layers of earth pushed into vertical positions by the collision of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates along the southern San Andreas Fault
    Simulation shows earthquake sweeping across California

    In San Bernardino County, the fault hasn't moved much since an earthquake in 1812, with a southeast section near Salton Sea has been quiet since around 1690.

    While scientists say the Pacific plate moving northwest of the North American plate should move 16ft (4.8 metres) every 100 years to relieve stress, this hasn't happened at San Andreas so stress has been building at points along the fault for more than a century.

    WHAT IS THE 'BIG ONE'? 


    The 'Big One' is a hypothetical earthquake of magnitude 8 or greater that is expected to happen along the San Andreas fault.
    [*]
     Such a quake is expected to produce devastation to human civilization within about 50-100 miles of the quake zone, especially in urban areas like Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 


    He said it is important the state prepares to be rocked by a quake as strong as 8 on the Richter scale and praised Los Angles' plans to reinforce older concrete buildings and the city's aqueduct and telecommunications networks.

    While the fault doesn't run under the city, a mega quake is expected to rock it, according to simulations. 

    A report by the US Geological Survey in 2008 warned a magnitude 7.8 earthquake could result in 1,800 deaths, 50,000 injuries and $200 billion (£138 billion) of damage.

    Such devastation could be brought about by a strong quake in just two minutes, striking in the Coachella Valley, for example, which could also shake areas where sediments trap waves, such as east Los Angeles.

    The damage caused by a similar strength quake was last seen in 1857, when an earthquake originating in Parkfield in Monterey County travelled south along the fault for 185 miles (300km), and then east from LA.

    5/06/2016 -- Earthquake Forecast -- West Coast under pressure + International Unrest brewing


    Published on May 6, 2016
    We appear to be in for a slightly bumpy ride this week when it comes to international earthquake activity.

    Additionally, the United States has a new warning zone off the West coast for the next 7 days, as well as the interior Southwest of the USA. We could see M5.0+ earthquake activity this week, and larger midwest to East coast compensation movement as well.

    Europe is now reset for another round of movement to the South in the upper M4.0 to M5.0 range. 

    North India to West China is set for new large movement, as well as Japan, and Papua New Guinea.

    Larger movement should strike Central America in the M6.0 range near Panama / El Salvador .. South America needs to watch the coast of Chile for additional larger activity to strike. Could be larger than M6.5 

    All the areas named in the forecast should be hit this week with the expected larger magnitudes. Keep track on my websites, and using the earthquake monitoring links provided.

    A magnitude 5.9 earthquake has hit Australia some 460 kilometers southwest of the town of Alice Springs in the country’s Northern Territory, the US Geological Survey has reported.

    According to USGS, the epicenter of the quake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 kilometers.


    There have so far been no reports of casualties or destruction so far.


    The earthquake took place on Saturday at 3:54 am local time in a sparsely populated area southeast of Kaltukatjara in the Northern Territory and northwest of Kalka Homeland in South Australia, BNO News reported.


    The earthquake may have been felt as far as 507 kilometers from its epicenter, although any damage would be limited to a 40 kilometer radius, according to Geoscience Australia estimations.


    The current quake is one of the strongest to hit mainland Australia since August 1997, when a 6.3-magnitude earthquake was recorded off Collier Bay on the far north coast of West Australia.
