That area has been ripping them lately. I think I have been pinged a half dozen times in the past week with 6.0 plus quakes from there.

Start the countdown until the “Global Warming” is integrated into the story, as the blame for any event is used (Katrina, Sandy, etc.)

Probably caused by fracking.

That link was to an aftershock.

This is the mainshock:

6.4 was an after shock. 8.0 was primary.

3 foot tsunami at the small island nearest the epicenter.

That’s a lot worse than it sounds, but probably suggests there MAY not be much of a long-range tsunami threat.

The main quake was 8.0. There was a 6.4 aftershock ten minutes later and about ten minutes after that a 5.6 aftershock. Wow.

Unless there is a tsunami, I imagine the biggest hassle here is that the ocean floor will be rewritten again, and until it is remapped, things are going to be tricky for the unterseebooters.

After that big one last time, and because of outdated charts, we really got the front end of one of ours bashed in. The USS San Francisco. Its Captain is now farming turkeys.

Yeah, and volcanoes are caused by global warming too. All 300 billion years of ‘em.

On a macro scale, I believe they are. I think, increases in the earth's temperature (which, occur naturally) probably trigger increases in plate movement, and thus... Earthquakes and volcanoes..

I think, volcanoes are a PART of the earth's temperature regulating system.

Just a theory... I'd love to see some data that attempted to correlate temperature with seismic activity.

The San Francisco collision had absolutely nothing to do with any seafloor change caused by a recent earthquake.

No Pacific Wide Tsunami; looks like this was basically a non-event except on the small island closest to the epicenter.

That was the pointy end of a very expensive submarine.

Included in the damage was the Captain's career. You can see it smeared on that last bulkhead.

In a rather strange development there was a much greater wave only half an hour ago at at deep-water DART buoy near the earthquake - PTWC still issuing warnings and watches.

.. A TSUNAMI WARNING AND WATCH ARE IN EFFECT ...

A TSUNAMI WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR

SOLOMON ISLANDS / VANUATU / NAURU / PAPUA NEW GUINEA / TUVALU /
NEW CALEDONIA / KOSRAE / FIJI / KIRIBATI / WALLIS AND FUTUNA /

FOR ALL OTHER AREAS COVERED BY THIS BULLETIN... IT IS FOR
INFORMATION ONLY AT THIS TIME.

THIS BULLETIN IS ISSUED AS ADVICE TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. ONLY
NATIONAL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO MAKE
DECISIONS REGARDING THE OFFICIAL STATE OF ALERT IN THEIR AREA AND
ANY ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN RESPONSE.

AN EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED WITH THESE PRELIMINARY PARAMETERS

ORIGIN TIME - 0112Z 06 FEB 2013
COORDINATES - 10.9 SOUTH 165.1 EAST

PER - PERIOD OF TIME IN MINUTES(MIN) FROM ONE WAVE TO THE NEXT.

NOTE - DART MEASUREMENTS ARE FROM THE DEEP OCEAN AND THEY
ARE GENERALLY MUCH SMALLER THAN WOULD BE COASTAL
MEASUREMENTS AT SIMILAR LOCATIONS.

EVALUATION

SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. IT MAY HAVE
BEEN DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER AND
COULD ALSO BE A THREAT TO MORE DISTANT COASTS. AUTHORITIES SHOULD
TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO THIS POSSIBILITY. THIS
CENTER WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR SEA LEVEL DATA TO DETERMINE THE
EXTENT AND SEVERITY OF THE THREAT.

FOR ALL AREAS - WHEN NO MAJOR WAVES ARE OBSERVED FOR TWO HOURS
AFTER THE ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT
OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME
THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN
CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE TO RAPID CURRENTS. AS LOCAL
CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE
ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION MUST BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS
WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL
ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN
SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

WOW.Thank you for posting the pic. Back on topic, I hope there is as minimal loss of life and property s possible from the quake. 8 is pretty big.

I should have been clearer, now that I see there was a lot of conspiratorial bulldada about the USS SF.

The earthquake/tsunami was in 2004, the USS SF was, among other things, remapping what had been a poorly mapped area before, looking for changes. What they ran into in 2005 had been suspected, but not charted on the charts they were using. This is why then ran into it at full speed, FD&H.

One crewman later remarked that they were relatively lucky, because not long before the collision they had been pulling major routine maintenance, and there were loose deck plates all over that could have turned into lethal Frisbees.

But as things happened, they had finished, secured everything, and were either eating in the mess or on watch.
