"They said an island had dissappeared into the sea."

I'm reminded of this verse
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Am I the only one who finds it offensive when people try to make "clever" jokes (which in reality are about as pathetic as they come) duing disasters when many are killed?

You're too late by hours.

I was lurking at ...er..uh...Demented Universe, and they were discussing the various "scientific theories" around global warming causing earthquakes. Entertaining.

Probably. Its called gallows humor, black humor, etc.

Generally it occurs when the only other thing you can say is “better them than me.” And we all know that is in bad taste.

A 6.0-magnitude earthquake killed two people in Argentina on Saturday just hours after a massive quake struck off Chile leaving hundreds feared dead and setting off a tsunami, a doctor said.

Happened in the province of Salta. 2 dead so far: an 8-year old boy and a man, age 53. Lived in the Valley of Lerma. 6.1 on “Richter scale, hppened around noon. Two other children were treated in the local hospital, but are in no danger.

Las víctimas son un chico de 8 años y un hombre de 53 que vivían en la zona del Valle de Lerma. El terremoto ocurrió al mediodía y fue de 6,1 en la escala de Richter. Otros dos nenes fueron asistidos en el hospital local, aunque están fuera de peligro.

Where next?

I have been following the quake action for the last few weeks so I posted this a few days ago:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2443122/posts?q=1&;page=301#348

Anyways, I believe an area of complete interest for the next large quake will be the Cascadia Subduction Zone of the coast of Washington and Oregon.

On two of the last few posts in that thread I explain my reasoning.

Seismologist expert says there is “no relation” between the Salta, Argentina quake and the Chile quake, they’re on different tectonic plates. Chile is on the Naxca plate; Argenitina is on the South American plate, according to Alejandro Guzman, Director of the National Institute of Seismic Prevention.

http://www.clarin.com/diario/2010/02/27/um/m-02149237.htm

Alejandro Giuliano, director del Instituto Nacional de Prevención Sísmica (INPRES) explicó a Clarín que el sismo de 8,8 grados en la escala de Richter que se produjo en Chile durante la madrugada no “tiene ninguna relación” con el que ocurrió al mediodía en la provincia argentina de Salta y que se sintió con fuerza en Jujuy, Tucumán y en La Rioja.

El sismo de Salta tuvo su epicentro 15 kilómetros al sudoeste de la capital, tuvo una magnitud de 6,1 en la escala de Richter y dejó un saldo de dos muertos.

“La Tierra está dividida en 12 placas tectónicas. La chilena, es la placa de Nazca; la argentina es la placa Sudamericana. La interacción entre estas dos placas fue la responsable de la formación de la Cordillera de los Andes. Pero cuando se producen los pliegues también se provocan fracturas, por eso el oeste argentino está ampliamente fracturado. Eso hace que haya fallas activas en nuestra placa. De estas fallas provino el sismo en Argentina, no de la interacción con la placa chilena. No tienen relación porque son ambientes tectónicos diferentes”, explicó el experto.

De hecho, ambos sismos no coincidieron en el horario: el de Chile ocurrió de madrugada y el de Salta, a las 12.45 de hoy. Sin embargo, el temblor que se sintió en Mendoza, San Juan, Río Negro, Bahía Blanca, La Rioja (donde se sintieron los dos), Córdoba y hasta en las torres más altas de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, sí fueron consecuencia del “temblor importado de Chile”, aunque atenuado por la distancia.

You are correct:

http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin/neic_tfc3_cy.gif

However, I would not think that one could say that it was not directly or indirectly related to the Chile Quake.

Subduction thrust quakes involve normally two plates...lol

In this case the south american and nazca.

Salta is in the NW corner of Argentina. Concepcion, Chile is quite a bit to the South and west.

That’s kind of what I thought, too, but the gist of what I got from that guy is that the Salta quake is just along a fault line that’s well on the South American plate. I don’t know the seismology, so I just present it as the “expert” says it.

As you probably know this has been going on in Okla. for the past month or so. Friends who live in that area tell me there are small tremors once a week or more now, some days quite a few.

She said their house is coming apart, it is a very old historical type home. I told her I would be putting my things in a POD a going somewhere else.

Think she may put seat belts on her bed and recliner.

Geo dudes really hate to attribute a quake as consequence to another quake, not sure why but it's common. Fox went on to say today that this was an aftershock...now that may be what the guy is debating?

To me(layperson)the effects are obvious...lol
