We’ve had recent big shakers pretty much all the way around the ring of fire except the left coast of the US.

Just sayin’...

Those who are in their right minds who can afford to move out of California should leave A.S.A.P.

Update 17:12 UTC : We do repeat that deep earthquakes who do originate in the solid hot mantle of the earth are mostly harmless. As every earthquake is different such an expectation is based on numbers only. Secondary effects like Rockfall and landslides may always cause damage and injuries (mainly depending on the weather conditions)

Update 17:17 UTC : Distance from the epicenter to the capitals of the 2 neighbouring countries Colombia and Ecuador is about the same (Bogota and Quito).

Update 17:20 UTC : Popoyan, a Colombian city close to the epicenter is reporting a light MMI IV shaking, which is a good sign

That Colombian city should be spelled Popayón. I simply copied and pasted it....and did not see the misspelling.

Does anyone know of a good earthquake monitoring website?

The USGS used to have a good one but as is usually the case, people can’t leave well enough alone and now it is terrible.

That little thing? No, that does not qualify as an earthquake.

If something sitting on a shelf has not fallen over it is not a earthquake.

That is the one at USGS that I liked but it is being phased out for the new improved version.

This is the one that is being phased out. It was so simple and quick. Why does everyone think a website has to have every bell and whistle? Woe is me.

11.8 Mag ? yup, that's a BIG ONE....

The one that hit Indonesia in 2004 and Japan actually caused the earth to wobble.. now that's a lot of energy being released.

No thanks.

It's 90 degrees here - dry heat - with a light breeze. Lovely!

Prepared as much as possible for another earthquake. (Been through many).

I totally agree.

Everything these days has got to be all Java, and I think it’s a bunch of crap!

If I could still be able to browse the web at all without it, I would TOTALLY turn it off and remove it!

I have Noscript, that disables most of it.

This one gives you something the others cannot. See the PATTERN of Earthquake activity.

See Earthquake activity all around the WHOLE PLANET, all at once. Zoom IN/OUT, Rotate the Earth at will. Change the viewing options. Change the MAGNITUDE and TIME PERIOD you wish to view at will.

EARTHQUAKE 3D. Download the program, run it. The program only take 2 seconds to download.

It automatically UPDATES and ..... IT’S FREE !!!!!!!!!!!

Only time will tell....

Look on the bright side, the bible also says that God has hidden treasures in the deep, maybe one of these earthquakes opens up the earth and find a new big gold vain... another California gold rush..

Those USGS ones are OK, but they show only a localized area.

I.E. You can see all that ‘activity’ but you can’t see the relationship between those local quakes and quakes on the other side of the planet.

EARTHQUAKE 3D lets you see EVERYTHING.

AND IT’S FUN (and free). I spent 2 hours just playing with the controls.

http://www.wolton.net/quake.html

Try it and see if you don’t see things in a way you never could before.

The pacific rim gets about 3,000 quakes a year.
Southern California has had a swarm of small quakes the last several months.

Well, it could be in the differnces twixt subduction and transpression. This one was fairly deep. But if you look at localized earthquake maps you’ll see things popping all the time. It’s statistical.

Wonder if that’s a seismic shift...?

Drudge was so successful I think because he kept is web page simple in the early year when everyone else was trying to make their web pages graphics instensive but early computers could not keep up. He kept it to simple links, quick loading and only a couple of pictures.

He has since added more pictures but only at the rate that the computers out there could handle them quickly.

It is the most simple website on the internet and one of the most successful, proving that you and I are correct.

I live in Dallas....Never felt a thing.

You should know that each “point” on the chart is 10X. So a 3.0 magnitude quake is 1/10 the strength of a 4.0, which is 1/10 the strength of a 5.0....

Essentially a 3.0 is like a big truck going down your alley.....pretty wimpy

I have the “Quakes” app on my Iphone. It’s very cool. lets you know whenever a quake occurs and where with what magnitude. You can set the magnitude threshold for alerts.

Drudge earned success by breaking the Monica story while the media was united in blockading the story. The covered their slick BJ rapist like they cover their gay muslim thug.

Drudge was popular before that. For the reasons I said. He was given the Lewinski story because newsweek was spiking it. If drudge had not already been a success with his website, he would not have goten the story. His site was successful because it was fast loading at a time when other sites were fat and painfully slow. And he broke new ground as a one stop Web portal. You are certainly correct the lewinski story was a big big boost.
